Orzeł Łódź keeps running strong in the 2nd Polish Speedway league as they defeated hosts KSM Krosno by 39:51 this afternoon. Orzeł started off slow, trailing behind Krosno until the 7th race. However, two 5:1 wins in the 8th and 9th race brought the guests up front from which moment Orzeł dominated the match.
A heavy crash in the 13th race required the intervention of emergency staff. In the second lap of the race, Krosno’s Łogaczow crashed into Orzeł’s Miśkowiak who had to be treated on the track. However, in the replay of the 13th race, Miśkowiak went on to win the three points for Orzeł ahead of Ernest Koza (Krosno) and Tomasz Gapiński (Łódź).
So far, Orzeł Łódź won 3 out of 4 matches this season. Next Sunday, 08.05.16, Orzeł will play host to Polonia Bydgoszcz.
