As expected, the Dutch girls have downed Romania to open the European Championship.

 

The Netherlands are the clear-cut favorites in Pool C and they proved it today by beating Romania 3-0 (25-21, 25-18, 25-9). Celeste Plak and Yvon Belien were the best scorers on the winning side with 13 points each.

Azerbaijan scored a very important win even thought the European Championship has just started. They beat Croatia in a very uncertain game 3-2, to increase the chances for taking one of the first two sets. 

Yelizaveta Samodova was the best scorer in Azerbaijan with 28 points, while Polina Rahimova added 16. In Croatia, Samantha Fabris scored 31 points.

POOL C, round 1:

Croatia - Azerbaijan 2-3 (13-25, 25-20, 25-22, 24-26, 15-17)

Netherlands – Romania 3-0 (25-21, 25-18, 25-9)

Hungary – Estonia 20:30 CET (Friday, August 23)

ITALIAN CUP M: Trentino drop 2-0 in sets, Lube become first finalists

Trentino really started fast in set 1 and 2 and looked really smooth but Lube's experience and identity showed through when it counted. Bruno found the hot spikers at the right time and Simone Gianellli didnt feed the ball enough to his middles and Russell who hit .680 and zero errors. Both Trentino's other pins received more sets and far lower scoring percentages. Doesn't look like Kovacevic will be back this year to form so the coaches need to be smarter.

Hoping the Perugia/Modena match is as good. Reply
