Knack ROESELARE wins clash for second place in Pool A
2013 CEV Volleyball Champions League - Men

Roeselare, Belgium, November 14, 2012. Knack ROESELARE scored on Wednesday its second home win in the prelims of the 2013 CEV Volleyball Champions League this time by edging Germany’s VfB FRIEDRICHSHAFEN with the score of 3:1 (26-24, 22-25, 25-20, and 25-23) to re-assert its intention to make it to the Playoffs 12 after claiming the second place in the provisional standings of Pool A.
The guests started their campaign with three service errors with ROESELARE going up 8:6 by the first mandatory stop of the opening set. Puerto Rican Jose Rivera fought back for the Germans as he surprised the Belgian block with his left-handed attacks and opposite Ventceslav Simeonov also added some more points to make it 14:16 at the second technical time-out. Dirk Westphal fired up the comeback of Knack ROESELARE and an ace by Gertjan Claes drew level at 20 all. After a tie at 23, VfB FRIEDRICHSHAFEN got a set ball but Hendrik Tuerlinckx finished it off at 26-24 for the home side.

With the great contribution of their captain Joao José the guests from Germany went up 4:8 in the second set and with Brazilian Idi behind the serving line they widened the gap to 6:11 and 7:12. It was 10:16 by the second technical time-out and as Van Hirtum replaced Paulides, Knack closed the gap a bit to 13:16. Tomas Rousseaux and Stijn D’Hulst replaced Tervapportti and Tuerlinckx but it was Simeonov that hit the last ball to make it 1:1 in sets (22-25).

The third set was extremely close in the early phases but Tuerlinckx spiked for the 8:6 and with Westphal on fire Knack could gradually get control of the operations (16:12) while Simeonov was replaced by Thomas Zass as VfB opposite. Knack did not lose composure (22:16) and young star Rousseaux could score the last point for the joy of the home audience (25-20). 

Starting with their best setter Juraj Zatko and Zass, the guests opened with a 2:4 run in set 4 but once again Tuerlinckx – best scorer in the end with 23 points well supported by Westphal with 16 – could pace Knack (14:10 and 16:12) and the splendid run of the home side continued up to the 25-23 that sealed a splendid 3:1 win whereby the fans literally erupted in joy.  

“I want to congratulate my young players for their enthusiasm and the hard work they sustained to claim this match. I also want to praise our second lines because their help was fundamental to win this game. It was close but I think we deserved this victory” said home coach Emile Rousseaux.
