Belgium was tremendously superior in the first set, smashing opponent since the opening point 3-0. Hungary created same run to equalize 3-3, but Belgians again went ahead with 6-1 run (9-4)! Hungary couldn’t recover from that strike and point by point, Belgium increased advantage until the end of the set 14-8, 20-12, 25-15.

Similar story happened in the next set. At 2-all, Belgium blew off rival with 5-0 run (8-2) and practically finished entire job in Set 2. At the second TTO, Belgians had unreachable ten-point lead 16-6. It has grown to final and for Hungarians, embarrassing 25-8.

Hungary needed at least one set played decently to justify its presence at the championship. It was Set 3, but only partially. Hungary had one-point initiative until 10-all. Then, Belgium started with its play from previous two sets and made 7-1 run (17-11). The hopes of Hungarians were extinguished 25-18.

Lise van Hecke was a leader in points in Belgium with 15, while European League MVP, Renáta Sándor, had eight in Hungary.
