First League. Draw in Kharkiv in the match Metalist 1925 - Kolos was in favor of Volyn

It seemed like a rather unexpected draw in the previous round with one of the leaders, Obolon Brovar, would inspire the Sumy players for new achievements.

But in the reporting match the miracle did not happen: the "locals" gave way to the middle-class at home - the "Balkans". Moreover, the minimum score should not be misleading - the game advantage of the wards of Andriy Parkhomenko did not cause any doubts, and only reliable play of the goalkeeper of the hosts Nikita Zelensky saved them from the defeat. He was powerless only after 32 minutes when Ruslan Palamar made a good save on the penalty area. 0: 1.

The second win in a row allowed the Balkans to gain a foothold at the top of the standings. And if they do not slow down, they can significantly improve last season's performance when they finished 12th.

Two more matches that took place on Thursday aroused interest. In Volochysk there were teams that fought hard at the amateur level and in the second league. At present, things are going better for the Ivano-Frankivists, but the Podolians are not able to find their game. In order to lose his status as an outsider, the wards of Andriy Donets had to win in the Carpathian region. However, the Ivano-Frankivists held a different view. Already in the first half, they won after the blows of Bogdan Orynchak and Roman Barchuk - 2: 0. And it was necessary to reduce the backlog of Bogdan Semenets, as the restless Orinchak restored parity. However, the last word remained for Semenets, who also took a double, but in order to avoid defeat, it was not enough for the owners. 2: 3.

She also had no right to lose points and Volyn, which after a rally in the visit over the Kiev "brewers" pulled up to the playoff zone. And in the case of the victory over Ingulets, the Lucians could really claim a place on the pedestal, especially since their competitors, Kolos and Obolon-Brovar, were slowing down recently.

The owners opened the account with the efforts of veteran Sergiy Siminin. The visitors leveled the score after 62 minutes, as Nick Sicinava scored. But shortly after, Ingulets defender Maxim Kovalev was removed from the field. The Lucians were able to take advantage of the numerical advantage, and Mikhail Horopevshek brought Volyn such a desirable twist in opposition to the finalist of the Cup of Ukraine. 2: 1.

"It was a confrontation between the rivals in equal strength," said Ingulets head coach Sergey Lavrynenko. - Unfortunately, the referee lost control of the match in the second half and, in my opinion, unreasonably left us in the minority, which helped the hosts to win.

Of the matches that took place on Friday, the epicenter of attention was the game in Kharkiv, where Metalist 1925 hosted a neighbor on the standings - Kolos. As a result, a zero draw, which arranged the competitors of the participants of the meeting, first of all, "Volyn".
