The titleholders P.A.O.K. moved to the semifinals of the Greek men’s volleyball championship Volleyleague Pame Stoixima 17-18.



The second-seed PAOK advanced to the Volleyleague 17-18 playoff semifinals by sweeping No.7 Ethnikos Piraeus in the series of the quarterfinals with a 2-0. The team from Thessaloniki had to work harder in Game 2 compared to Game 1 (3-0) and beat the rivals in four sets, partially 23-25, 26-24, 25-22, 25-21.

The Bulgarian Nikolay Uchikov topped PAOK with 19 points. Ioannis Takouridis made 83% attack (10/12), while Rafail Koumentakis recorded 76% reception (17 digs, 41% excellent). Giannis Mantekas and Canadian Casey Knight scored 13 points apiece for Ethnikos.

Besides PAOK, two more teams were promoted into playoff semifinalists today – No.3 A.O. Foinikas Syros (won the series against No.6 Iraklis Chalkidas by a 2-0) and No.5 A.O.P. Kifisias (won the series against No.4 Iraklis Thessaloniki 2015 by a 2-0).

The top-seed Olympiacos S.F.P. will play Game 2 vs. No.8 G.A.S. Pamvochaikos (1-o in the series) on April 14 due to taking part in the rematch of the 2018 CEV Challenge Cup, which they lost to Bunge Ravenna.
