Dinamo Moscow achieved a second victory in the final series of the 2018/19 Russian Women’s Volleyball Championship and came to a step from being crowned titleholders.



The top seed Dinamo Moscow took full advantage of a home court to double the lead against the second seed Lokomotiv Kaliningrad region in the 2018/19 Superliga playoff finals.

Unlike Game 1 in which Dinamo swept the rivals, the team from the Russian capital had to turn Lokomotiv’s 2-1 lead over in Game 2 to get a 2-0 in the series: 27-25, 16-25, 22-25, 25-19, 15-10.

Nataliya Goncharova put down 29 points (four kill blocks) for the winning side while Irina Fetisova made 75% attack (12/16). Irina Voronkova scored 24 points for Lokomotiv. Ekaterina Orlova set up four kill blocks.

Counting these two wins, Dinamo beat Superliga rookies Lokomotiv four times in four matches in the season. The third and, if necessary, the fourth match of the final series will be held in Kaliningrad.

2018/19 Superliga playoff finals – Game 2:

Dinamo Moscow – Lokomotiv Kaliningrad region – 3-2 (27-25, 16-25, 22-25, 25-19, 15-10), series 2-0.
