While Dinamo Krasnodar had only minor problems against Cherepovets 3-1 (25:11, 20:25, 25:20, 25:22) in the first semi-final of the Russian Cup, the second game was simply spectacular.
Just look at the score: Dinamo Moscow – Dinamo Kazan 2-3 (21:25, 22:25, 25:22, 25:17, 17:19)!!!
The Moscow squad was just step away from the biggest comeback in this season. They even had 4 match points in the tie-break, but when they failed to use any of them… The punishment was inevitable. Dinamo Kazan took over the lead at 18:17 and then scored a point after a beautiful rally. Players of Dinamo Moscow somehow managed to defend attacks of Ekaterina Gamova and Antonella Del Core, but then Del Core used her second spike to put an end to this game – 19:17!
The only good thing for Dinamo Moscow is that they finally got a huge addition to their roster. Fernanda Garay made debut for the Moscow powerhouse!
Check out top scorers on this game:
Dinamo Moscow: Obmochaeva 32 points, Garay 14.
