TIF Viking and Førde Volleyballklubb will fight for the gold medal in the Norwegian men’s volleyball championship Mizunoliga 17/18.



The top-seed TIF Viking relatively easy outplayed No.4 Randaberg IL in both games of the Mizunoliga 17/18 playoff semifinals, 3-0 each. In Game 2, it was 26-24, 26-24, 25-21. Vetle Hylland topped Viking with 20 points, while Oscar Sæther contributed with 74% reception (19 digs, 1 error, 53% excellent). Ask Helland-Hansen scored 19 points for Randaberg. Anders Broen made 77% reception (22 digs, 2 errors, 55% excellent)

Much more drama was seen in the other semifinal, which was a rerun of the last season’s playoff finals. No.3 Førde Volleyballklubb won Game 1 against No.2 BK Tromsø by a 3-2 but was close to being forced to seek for a progress to the finals via Game 3. Their rivals gained a 2-1 in Game 2 before falling in the fourth set and, ultimately, in the tie-break.

The playoff finals will also be played in the best-of-three format.
