Belchatow took a quick 10-6 lead over Zaksa, holding on until they were able to catch up late at 20-19. From here, Zaksa went on a 6-2 run to end the set, taking the 2-0 lead in the match.

The final set, Zaksa was able to take better control of the set, starting off with a 4-0 lead, maintaining their lead until they took the third set and the match at 15-19.
