Czech Republic defeated host Montenegro in front of 2’000 cheering fans 3:1. Compared to first two matches, it was not the same level of play. Although both teams showed some great rallies, they undeniably committed too many errors. Especially in passing, both squads had many ups and downs. Best scorer of the match was Czech Michaela Mlejnkova with 20 points. Montenegrin Iva Mandic booked 15 units for the home squad. Read latest volleyball news on Worldofvolley.com.

The young Czechs experienced the better start into the match, whilst host Montenegro needed some time to adapt to such impressive scenery. However, in the second set Marko Radusinovic’s ladies put much more pressure on the Czech passers. It helped as the quality of the Czech service reception fell significantly. As a consequence, the Montenegrin ladies leveled the match after the second set.

Nevertheless, their game was not stable enough. In the third and fourth period, the Czechs regained momentum and never looked back. Lucie Nova ended the match in Czech Republic’s favor with a well-timed spike through the middle.

Montenegro head coach Marko Radusinovic: “We needed too long to lose our nervousness. The longer we played, the better we found our rhythm. I’m sure we can show much more.”

The Czech Republic head coach Leos Chalupa: “Tonight we’re just happy to leave the court as winners.”
