Tauron MKS cruises to comfortable straight win over Romanian champions
2014 CEV DenizBank Volleyball Champions League – Women
Dabrowa Gornicza, Poland, October 23, 2013. After losing two consecutive matches in their national league, on Wednesday Poland’s Tauron MKS DABROWA GORNICZA debuted in the 2014 CEV DenizBank Volleyball Champions League – Women by edging Romanian rookie Stiinta BACAU in straight sets (25-21, 25-15, and 25-18).
The first set was very close as both teams were displaying good Volleyball but shortly before the second technical time-out Tauron MKS killed a few spikes to break away in the score and get a margin of four points. The last section of that set was fully controlled by Tauron MKS that could seal the final 25-21.
“The start of the match was good for us; we played really good but after that we could not control our emotions and this resulted into a poor performance in the second and third set” said after the game Stiinta BACAU team captain Denisa Rogojinaru. Stiinta only had a few moments where it played good and Tauron MKS easily dominated the scene in the second set (25-15). “This match was very important for us because recently we had not played that good. And frankly speaking, Stiinta did not play that strong tonight” said Tauron MKS team captain Elzbieta Skowronska.
The game marked the debut of Stiinta BACAU in Europe’s elite club competition. “We have very limited experience at this level and this combined with a poor performance resulted into a straight defeat for us tonight” said Stiinta head coach Florin Grapa. “We are rookies and tonight we did not start that well in the competition but I just hope that in the next matches we will be able to play much better than we did here in Poland” he concluded.
