Örkelljunga occupied the last remained spot for the Swedish men’s volleyball championship Elitserien 2017/18 playoff semifinals.

 

No.5 Örkelljunga stunned No.4 Sollentuna in the Elitserien 2017/18 playoff quarterfinals as they won Game 4 in straight sets, partially 25-23, 25-12, 25-20, and clinched the series by a 3-1.

The job of Örkelljunga in Game 4 was easier than expected as their rivals could not count on two starters for a highly uncommon reason. Namely, regular season best scorer Linus Tholse and Jakob Molin decided to compete in the beach volley tournament in Göteborg!

The Lithuanian Tomas Vilimas topped Örkelljunga with 17 points, while Canadian Mike Choja added 6 kill blocks. Staffan Blomgren scored 15 points for Sollentuna.

The best-of-five playoff semifinals bracket:

No.1 Linköpings VC vs. No.5 Örkelljunga

No.2 Hylte/Halmstad vs. No.3 Falkenberg

ITA M: Fantastic four ready to battle for Scudetto!

#1 This is going to be a tremendous year for the Italian League. Every team has made moves to improve throughout the league.
#2 The top 4 are so close that it would not be wise to bet money.
#3 Depth and Roster managment may be the determining factor this year. It that happens , Lube and Perugia are in trouble with so much $ invested in such a few.
#4 I think the Super Coppa was a predictor to the Finals of the Scudetto. Modena and Trentino will upend Lube and Perugia. Reply
