Uralets showed a very unstable game. 2 defeats to Ledianye Voiny and Belsk, but at the same time, the team managed to beat the tournament leader Crystal. The team continues to have problems with their defensive line and goalkeeper, and the club lost the 4th line in the tournament.
Belsk could get closer to their rivals, and now they are 6 and 4 points adrift of joint first and second place respectively. The team from Minsk continues to play without their captain and leader Aleksandr Akhramovic, but they gave him a pleasant surprise, remaining in the lead of the tournament.
