The game was a match up starring the winners of last year’s national league, VakifBank, and the finalist of the 2012/2013 Turkish Cup, Eczacibasi VitrA
Eczacibasi got off to a very good start setting the pace of the game all the way through the opening set (8:6, 16:13) to bring it home at 25-22. VakifBank fought back in the second (16:11) and even though Eczacibasi were able to cut the deficit to -2 (21:19), a series of points scored by German middle-blocker Christiane Fürst sealed the final 25-21 for VakifBank and provisional 1:1. VakifBank dominated the scene in the third set storming out to a 5:1 lead and with eight points registered by their Serbian superstar Jovana Brakocevic, they easily cashed the final 25-14 for the 2:1 in sets. Though VakifBank set the pace also in the fourth set with another 5:1 break, Eczacibasi responded well, leveling at 9 and flipping the charts around at the second technical time-out (16:15). Büsra Cansu paced Eczacibasi down the final stretch and another 25-21 called for the tie-break. VakifBank started out strong there (4:2, 8:4) and by combining the spikes killed by Polen Uslupehlivan with good serving provided by Carolina Costagrande, the queens of Turkey’s and European Volleyball comfortably cruised to the final 15-5 to cash their first trophy of the season.
