Olympiacos made a first step towards winning the seventh consecutive Greek Women’s Volleyball Championship title.


 

Olympiacos, who overwhelmingly won the regular season in the Greek Championship with a 21-1 record and swept the playoff semifinal series with No.4 seed A.S.P. Thetis, successfully started the finals. The team from Piraeus achieved a straight-set win over third seed Pannaxiakos, at home, partially 25-14, 25-21 and 25-17 to get a 1-0 in the series and now need two more wins to claim the national title.

Olympiacos played Game 1 without two starters, German opposite hitter Saskia Hippe and middle blocker Katerina Giota, due to injuries. Konstantina Vlachaki top-scored for the winning side with 15 points.

ITALIAN CUP M: Lube prevail in adrenaline-filled finale, Perugia’s 23-game winning streak over

One of, if not the best match ever. Absolutely brilliant play by both sides. Fantastic Final. Reply

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
