Fakel celebrated the second win over titleholders Lokomotiv in the 2020/21 Russian Men’s Volleyball Championship in just two days.


The negative momentum of the reigning champions in the 2020/21 Russian Men’s Superliga Parimatch regular season still lasts. The second of the two matches in just two days between Fakel and Lokomotiv turned out to be super-intense but once again it went in favor of the former. Unlike yesterday’s encounter, this one – valid for a delayed Round 7, had to be resolved in the tie-break: 3-2 (25-21, 16-25, 16-25, 25-19, 18-16). With this win, Fakel settled at 4th position in the charts, pushing Zenit-Kazan to 5th place. Lokomotiv suffered the 4th defeat in a row and remained 7th.

Dmitriy Volkov top-scored the team from Kemerovo with 20 points. Denis Bogdan set up 4 blocks. The performance of Serbian Dražen Luburić from Lokomotiv (35 points) was in vain.

ASK extended their own winning streak to 5 games and moved up from the relegation (playout) zone to the playoff zone. The Nizhny Novgorod club came back from a two-set deficit against Gazprom-Yugra. Andrey Titich had a key role in it, putting down 21 points. Vitaliy Fettsov served 5 aces, while Aleksandr Melnikov made 6 blocks.

Segovia is not the outside hitter, she's the opposite. Malina Terrell is the second outside hitter. Reply

It`s really great how Segovia (OH2) did not receive a single serve. Reply
