Fighting Relegation, Volga Stormbringers Pummel Oslo Trolls

Fighting Relegation, Volga Stormbringers Pummel Oslo Trolls

Feb 28, 2018, 2:03 PM |

Fighting relegation, the Volga Stormbringers rallied to pummel the Oslo Trolls with a 10.5-5.5 final match score. Both teams came into today's match being out of playoff contention. However, they were still highly motivated to avoid relegation, which bars the two lowest scoring teams in each division from competing in 2019. Sadly, Oslo will not be participating in next year's season.

Oslo had a rough day all around with no team member scoring better than 2/4. Every board for Volga did his part with GM Sergey Grigoriants leading the way with 3.5/4. In round one, FM Eivind Olav Risting fell to Grigoriants in an entertaining battle.
