A house in Chomutov hosted an epic match between schools in tic-tac-toe. The miners fought with the Jogis and the result was unexpected.
The tournament got off to a slow start. In the first match, the teams Horníci Chomutov A and Horníci Chomutov B from the same year and Jogísci 1 and Jogísci 2 were pitted against each other. Horníci A won over Hornící B 8:4, Jogísci 1 won over Jogísky 2 8:4. All the teams had a very balanced fight.
However, a real turnaround came only with the second round, when the Údlice team joined the fight. Jogísci 2 crushed Údlice 10:2 and Horníci Chomutov A beat Jogísci 1 with a result of 10:2. The air began to thicken in the room and suddenly the tournament was not so balanced anymore. The teams started nudging each other a bit.
In the third round, Jogísci 1 had an even match with Hornící B, and Hornící A won over Údlice 10:2. Miners A and Miners B then won 8:4 over the Jogísci 2 team in the 3rd and 4th rounds. Údlice were eliminated in the last round, but they took the defeat sportily and despite the great superiority, they showed an amazing fight.
The University and OHK Chomutov expressed understanding in the area of the environment
Horníci Chomutov A advanced to the semi-finals in first place. They then won against the Jogísci 2 team and thus advanced to the finals. In the last match, teams Horníci A and Jogísci 1 played against each other. Jogísci 2 finished in 3rd place and Horníci B in 4th place.
The last game was so long that it almost ran out of time, and in the end both teams tied with each other. Both captains played together and the match was really exciting. All players from both teams were nervously watching the tournament progress.
The Miners A team captain then cheered that they had won and the team almost celebrated, but the game was not over as they did not fill both sides of the sheet. In the end, Miners A really won.
Hornící A and Jogísci 1 advance to the regional round in Ústí nad Labem. The entire tournament was full of emotions and tension and left an unforgettable impression on all participants.
