In the Men’s final Boleslav, who currently lead the regular season and are last season’s silver medallists, played against Vitkovice who are third. People were waiting for a match with few goals as in the last high stake matches between the teams not many goals were seen. The fight was even from the beginning and after 60 minutes the score was 1-1. Vitkovice were able to score the winning goal on overtime and were the cup winners.
