Proton caused an upset in Round 4 of the 2019/20 Russian Women’s Volleyball Championship regular season by beating Uralochka-NTMK.

 

Uralochka-NTMK were undefeated in the 2019/20 Superliga Parimatch in the first three rounds, which was a surprising result by itself. Thus, they imposed themselves as favorites on paper against the visiting side od Proton. However, the Saratov team showed that the Russian Championship will definitely be highly competitive this season - they beat Uralochka-NTMK by a 3-2 (16-25, 27-25, 25-16, 22-25, 15-13) and leveled with them at 3-1 but remained three points behind them in the charts (10-7). On the other hand, Uralochka failed to take over the lead in the standings that remained in the hands of Lokomotiv. Kseniya Parubets made an outstanding display against Proton with 37 points! Moldovian Aliona Martiniuc scored 24 points for the winning side, while Yuliya Grigoryeva set up 6 kill blocks.

Whilst the defeat of Uralochka can be considered as a surprise, the defeat of Dinamo Moscow can’t, even though they carry a Superliga crown. Zarechie-Odintsovo inflicted the third defeat of the season for the team from the Russian capital. Dinamo Moscow squandered two-set advantage and succumbed in the tie-break. Their opposite hitter Nataliya Goncharova was the top scorer of the match with 32 points, while the prospect outside hitter Viktoriya Russu tallied 28 points for Zarechie-Odintsovo.

FRA W: RC Cannes sign outside hitter from Texas University

Cannes' roster for next season doesn't seem to be THAT focused on young talent IMO. Don't see a difference to other clubs in this regard. Their main problem seems to be the decreasing interest of people in the club, a lack of (new) supporters to attend their home matches. Reply
