After four home matches, the basketball club “Tambov” left for the exit. As part of the Super League-2 season, Oleg Igumnov’s charges played in Magnitogorsk against the local Metallurg.
The guests seized the advantage already from the start of the match, having won the first quarter with a difference of 7 points (24:17). However, then Metallurg managed to recoup and left for the long break as the leader (42:41).
But after a pause, “Tambov”, leading the standings, took control of the game. Having won the remaining two quarters, Igumnov’s players won with a score of 83:73. The most productive among the winners were Maxim Khozyashev (16 points), Yuri Trubin (15) and Kirill Arkhipov (13).
The victory was the seventh in a row for the Tambov club. The team can extend their successful streak on November 21, when they will play again with Metallurg (0+).
