EC M: Ukraine crashed Sweden’s defence
Ukraine downed Sweden in straight sets (25-18, 25-18, and 25-20) after a splendid start whereby the Eastern Europeans went up 13:7 and 16:11 in the opening set. They crashed Sweden’s defense with their spikes before things got a little better for Sweden in set 2 where the score was leveled at 14. Still the guys coached by Yuriy Filippov could have the upper hand in the end and they did so also in the third set to go for a well-deserved 3:0 win.
