2013 CEV Volleyball Champions League - Women
Schwerin, Germany, December 5, 2012. In what was a key match to determine the chances of making it to the Playoffs 12 of the 2013 CEV Volleyball Champions League, Germany’s SCHWERINER SC bested 2004 Tomis CONSTANTA in straight sets (25-22, 25-23, and 25-15) to pocket a ticket to the next stage of the competition.
After the home win against URBINO, the Germans were already ranked second in prelim Pool E but CONSTANTA was also still in contention for a spot in the next round. SCHWERINER SC did show immediately its intention to go for a positive result claiming the first set with the score of 25-22. However, Tomis responded with a solid performance in attack and was not ready to bury the hatchet. The second set was a carbon copy of the first with SCHWERINER SC leading regularly by three or four points but CONSTANTA eventually bounced to the front (18:19). The final rush was really exciting and Slovak Lucia Hatinova ultimately pocketed the provisional 2:0 for the home side (25-23).
Well motivated by this unique opportunity to make it to the Playoffs 12, the Germans did accelerate their pace in set 3 and with a massive 25-15 could celebrate a splendid Volleyball night together with their many fans.
