The hosts did display a very solid performance also in set 2 (8:4) and were able once more to have the upper hand after a close fight (27-25). Starting from the third set and with the addition of giant Alexey Kazakov (217 cm), Ural UFA found their way into the game and controlled the operations (8:5, 16:7) dominating the scene and seizing that section with the terrific score of 25-13. The fourth set turned into another great showdown with Ural UFA ultimately calling for the tie-break.
