It was obvious that Posojilnica is slightly a better side, especially after the performances in the first two sets.
The hosts had many problems to control the service of Posojilnica, with the visitors scoring as many as 13 aces in the end.
The head coach of Arjan Taaij Abiant Lycurgus GRONINGEN has commented on the game, saying that they missed the opportunity.
“I think it was a missed opportunity. We should not have lost this game. However, we had quite some troubles with their serve and in our side-out as well. We could not find a good solution for our passing, especially at the end of the first two sets. Of course, many compliments to Posojilnica, as they were better, especially when scoring the big points. We are disappointed, but we must play better than we did today. It is close, but I think we can do better next week.”
