BURSA BBSK through to Challenge Cup semis for third straight year
2017 CEV Volleyball Challenge Cup - Women
Bursa, Turkey, March 7, 2017. Turkey’s BURSA BBSK qualified for the third straight season to the semis of the CEV Volleyball Challenge Cup – Women after on Tuesday afternoon they rallied to a comprehensive 3-0 victory (25-18, 25-12, 25-18) over Spain’s Naturhouse Ciudad de LOGROÑO in the second round of the quarterfinals.
The gold medallists from the 2015 edition of the competition – and last year’s semi-finalists – secured their progression to the next round after routing their opponents in the first and in the second set as well (25-18 and 25-12 the scores). Since BURSA BBSK had claimed a 3-1 away victory in Spain a couple of weeks ago, this was already enough to move on to the next stage of the competition. In the third set, the hosts from Turkey decided to use their younger players – yet they cruised to another 25-18 win to celebrate a 3-0 home victory. In the semi-finals, BURSA BBSK will play the eventual winners of the fixture starring Germany’s SSC Palmberg SCHWERIN and Viteos NEUCHATEL Université of Switzerland.
