Kuzbass Kemerovo progressed to the playoff semifinals of the Russian men’s volleyball championship Superliga 2017/2018 as they eliminated major title favorites Belogorie Belgorod!



No.7 Kuzbass made history before the eyes of their fans and advanced to the playoff semifinals, which is the best achievement in the history of our club.

The Kemerovo team outclassed second-seed Belogorie in the quarterfinals by a 2-0 in the series, which included a double straight-set win, and earned the right to participate in European competition next season. Only at the end of the season, Kuzbass will know in which of the three cups under the CEV they will contest.

The Ukrainian Dmytro Pashytskyy topped Kuzbass in Game 2 with 14 points (3 aces) and 77% attack (10/13). The German Georg Grozer scored 16 points for Belogorie.

The top-seed Zenit Kazan scored another 3-1 win, partially 25-15, 23-25, 27-25, 25-21), against No.8 Nova Novokuybyishevsk and found the way to the semifinals.

Game 2 of the remained two quarterfinal matchups will be played during the weekend.
