European champions Eczacıbaşı VitrA İstanbul downed Division 1 leaders in four sets causing them first defeat since the beginning of the season in Turkey 3-1 (25-22, 27-25, 15-25, 26-24).

The visitors, VakifBank, lost Set 1 on incredible way since they had 8-2 and 16-11, but Eczacıbaşı’s furious 10-2 run (21-18) was crucial. Similar story in Set 2. Vakif had two or three-point gap most of the time, even 21-19, but failed to finish it.

The only set when Vakif managed to save their lead was third set, but in the fourth, Eczacıbaşı pulled strings from the very start (8-6, 16-14), got tired in finish (19-21), but recovered right on time.

Despite having advantage in aces (12-10) and blocks (16-9), VakifBank lost and they can blame it on too many attacking errors (34) comparing to 22 from Eczacıbaşı.

The Cuban Rosir Calderón topped Eczacıbaşı’s scorers with 25 points. Serbian Milena Rašić had 14 in Vakif.

It was a very interesting game… Eczacibasi’s reception and setting were very poor. Can’t believe Vakifbank lost to Eczacibasi. Why is Sheila Castro not playing?
