The matches of the 9th round of the Russian beach soccer championship and flying disc competitions concluded on Day 3 of the third All-Russian Beach Games in Kazan.
CSKA vs Strogino: 3-2
Goals: Peremitin (17), Kryshanov (22), Stepliani (26) – Aksenov (30), Borsuk (34)
CSKA took the lead from the outset, having netted three goals, but the ending turned out to be a nail-biter. Eventually, it was CSKA’s best striker, Sergey Stepliani, who scored a winning goal of the match.
Elmont vs Kristall: 3-6
Goals: Vostrikov (22), Kuzmin (36, 36) – Krasheninnikov (6, 23, 24), Kartsahov (14), Rodrigo (15), Romanov (25).
In the game against Elmont, Yury Krasheninnikov scored as many goals as he did during all the previous matches altogether. His hat trick was a turning point in the game of the leader against the outsider.
Krylia Sovetov vs Lokomotiv: 2-6
Goals: Vinogradov (16), Raskin (28) – Maurisino (4), Nikonorov (6, 14, 21), Kryshanov (15, 24).
By the 15th minute Lokomotiv was having an upper hand, 4-0, and only later they allowed the rivaling team to score their first win. Three goals were netted by the season’s best striker, Boris Nikonorov.
“It’s great that I score goals, but the main thing is that it helps my team to win games. I do my best to contribute to Lokomotiv’s victory and I also improve my stats. So far we haven’t been meeting the goals we have set for ourselves for the Kazan tournament. Our mission was to win in every match, but we lost to Delta in the previous game. We hope that we will finish the stage with two victories. We have a match against Spartak ahead; these matches are always tough. It will be a great match; we are looking forward to seeing fans at our game,” Boris Nikonorov said.
Spartak vs Delta: 5-2
Goals: Zemskov (7, 12, 21), Pavlenko (12), Fedorov (15) – Bokinha (19), Felipe (34).
Spartak came out victorious in the match between the tournament’s leaders. The Moscow team beat their rivals relatively easily. Having scored three goals, Spartak’s Fedor Zemskov became the best player of the match. Spartak will play its next match against another Moscow club, Lokomotiv.
“It will be interesting to play against Lokomotiv. Both our teams should show a good game. I love their best finisher Boris Nikonorov's thirst for goals, his football egoism that any good striker should have. I see nothing bad about it. I will try to help our defenders to block him in the match against us,” Fedor Zemskov said.
The Moscow derby will headline the 10th round of the Russian beach soccer championship on Monday at 18.30. The following matches will be played:
Strogino vs City
Elmont vs CSKA
Delta vs Kristall
Spartak vs Lokomotiv
