WCH 2018 M: One more step - The reigning champions Poland beat USA to claim the final!

1343 0

The reigning champions Poland are one step away from defending the title they won in 2014!

 

After an amazing battle in the semifinals, Poland have booked the ticket for the final where they will mee the same rival as in 2014 - Brazil! It will be a remake of the final and that shows how serious these two countries work when we talk about volleyball.

Vital Heynen has come to lead this generation to one more medal. They have the silver in their pocket, but we are pretty much sure that the Polish team will consider the silver as a failure...

What happened in this game? Bartosz Kurek and Michal Kubiak happened. These two guys led the reigning champions to the finals, having amazing performances. Simply, the U.S. team didn't have any solution for them. Kurek ended the game with 29 points, while Kubiak added 22.

Even though the USA had a 2-1 lead, they didn't manage to keep it. In the tie-break, they were trailing 10-3, but thanks to Daniell McDonnell they decreased the lead of the rival to 11-9! However, Kurek ended the scoring run of the USA which created a huge opportunity for Poland to finish the game.

Anderson (19), Sander (19) and Russell (18) were the best scorers in John Speraw's team...

Semifinals: 

Brazil - Serbia 3-0 (25-22, 25-21, 25-22)

Poland - USA 3-2 (25-22, 20-25. 23-25, 25-20, 15-11)

ITA M: Modena tie the series vs. Perugia, Lube close to clinch the spot in the finals

Zaytzev was simply terrific, finally. :)
Lube again wins the serve /passing battle, which they live by in this matchup.
Trentino looks fragile and unsure. Russell is not swinging with confidence, Kovacevic passing is off and serve is not there. Gianelli's location missed numerous times
Why is Vetorri EVER pulled for a significant less player in Nelli? That the Trentino coach cannot do again. All this and yet Trentino still could have won match 1 and pushed last night to 5.
Trentino will correct their mistakes and gain momentum on Monday at home and push this series to a 5th match. Lube will tire. Reply

SLO M: ACH Volley crowned champions for the 15th consecutive season

I believe there has been a typo. Libero is Jani Kovačič and not Jan Pokeršnik(receiver) Reply
