Zenit-M exchanged victories with PARMA-M at home

The Zenit Youth team started 2022 by sharing games with their peers from Parma Perm. The first place in the standings before the holidays allowed us to hope for more than confident play at the home arena.

Unsuccessful result in the second game cost our team the first spot in the standings, but we still have two unplayed games.

Z: Bokarev (7 + 8 assists), Ivanov (6 + 9 rebounds), Kozin (0), Sorokin (26), Lenkin (10) – start; Burinsky (2), Tikhomirov (2), Zemsky (13), Fedkin (1), Ryzhov (8), Rodionov (0), Borisov (18).

R: Passes (18 + 7 rebounds), Melnikov (0), Morozov (10 + 6 rebounds), Koryakin (8), Voitov (0) – start; Danilov (0), Klementyev (20 + 9 assists), Shestakov (0), Boldov (0), Tuchkov (3), Ionov (4), Plugarev (9).

Quate

Maxim Uchaikin, Zenit-M head coach:

We were planning to take both games, but failed. Now the championship has passed its equator, and each team is counting points and is already thinking about the “Final Eight”. In the second game, we lost every single combat on the court, and I can’t say what happened. We need to forget and prepare further. Season is long, so this is a good test for young guys. Tomorrow we need to recover, and after that we’ll start getting ready for the upcoming clashes.

Next game

On January 14-15, Zenit-M is going to visit Khimki-2, which is on the third spot in the VTB Youth League standings.
