    palyoff top 6 second leg, last match


    Dela Martinus Amstelveen vs Zarechie Odintsovo 3-2 (25-23, 25-15, 20-25, 22-25, 15-10) stats


    my comments:

    Amstelveen was supposed to have a chance to get through by 3-0 over Russian Team, they performed a precise volleyball with quick attack around position 3 and 2 and perfect reception and defense....on the contrary the russian side made too much mistake in the first 2 sets. in the important 3rd set, Amstelveen still led 1-2 points ahead before approaching 20th point, till Kim Staelens made a double hit while setting another quick attack...dutch side went down slightly but Zarechie began counterpunching fiercely in the 4th set. amstelveen couldnt even control the reception flier made more mistake, while Zarechie strenghtened their block over net to acquire the second set win which meant Zarechie was in !!!! the 5th set wouldnt matter at all, Zarechie sent substitutes on court to complete the rest of match...Dutch won the game at home but lost their final oppotunity.....
