The second edition took place in favor of volleyball players from Rzeszów. The home side went chasing after the result, first recovering after the Czyrniańska ace (9:9), but halfway through the set the Developerres players successfully rebuilt their lead. When it was 3:19 pm the cheeks started to catch up again. A series of successful attacks by Czyrniańska and Jovana Brakocevic-Canzian followed and the visitors’ advantage quickly diminished (19:19).

The volleyball players of Developres started the third game successfully (4:8), but halfway through the set they got another break and the home team made up for the losses (16:16). The point-for-point battle began and eventually the set was decided. This time, the inhabitants of Rzeszów were the top, and Kara Bajema became the heroine in their ranks.

The fourth episode is an effective start to the cheeks (4:0). At the score of 8:5, quarterback Marlena Kowalewska sustained an injury, who had to leave the field.

The first final match ended with a tiebreak and it can be said without exaggeration that it was a theater of one actress in the beginning.

The players from Rzeszów still tried to chase the result, but were unable to make up for such a loss.
