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
