MUSZYNA claims Challenge Round spot to play there another team from Baku
2014 CEV Volleyball Cup - Women
Baku, Azerbaijan, January 23, 2014. Poland’s Polski Cukier Fakro MUSZYNA completes the draw for the Challenge Round of the 2014 CEV Volleyball Cup – Women after the players mentored by head coach Bogdan Serwinski claimed on Thursday also their second 1/4 final game with Azerbaijan’s Lokomotiv BAKU (3:2; 26-24, 14-25, 25-21, 18-25, and 15-12).
As they try to retain the title they surprisingly won last year beating Fenerbahce SK ISTANBUL in the final, MUSZYNA needed to take another two sets from this game in order to make it to the Challenge Round scheduled for early February. Last week MUSZYNA had seized the night in three sets and this time started out strong claiming a very close first set (26-24). However, Lokomotiv was not ready to give in that easily and responded by showing superb actions in the second (25-14) to restore the balance. Polski Cukier Fakro MUSZYNA got back on track in the third and the final 25-21 was already enough to secure a ticket to the next round. The home heroines continued to play with a good attitude though already eliminated from the competition and won the fourth set to call for the tie-break. MUSZYNA was then back highly motivated there and eventually claimed a 3:2 win waiting now to play another team from Azerbaijan, Azeryol BAKU, in the next round.
