by WoV

Defending champions Turkey clinched the bronze medal in the 2014 CEV U19 Volleyball European Championship – Women on Sunday after beating Greece 3:1 (18-25, 25-18, 25-23, 25-15) at A. Le Coq Sports Hall in Tartu, Estonia. Anthi Vasilantonaki was the top scorer in the match with 25 points; Yagmur Mislina Kilic led Turkey with 17 kills. Turkey had ten blocking points to Greece’s seven.



Turkey head coach Mustafa Suphi Doganci: “I’m happy to get a medal even though we had the target to play for gold. Greece played well today but I’m satisfied with the mentality that my team showed.”

Turkey captain Arelya Karasoy: “It might be our destiny to finish third like we did in the youth competition. Our moral after our defeat against Serbia was low but today we displayed our strength, especially in last two sets.”

Greece head coach Konstantinos Papadopoulos: “The fourth place is the best women’s result in Greek volleyball history so I can’t complain. We had to wait 18 years to play in the final round. Now we go home without medal but with a lot of experience. Today’s match was decided in the third set when we were very close to win.”

Greece captain Anthi Vasilantonaki: “We played well and put Turkey under pressure but they never gave up and eventually we couldn’t stop them.”
