Third consecutive win for Azeri rookie Lokomotiv BAKU
2013 CEV Volleyball Champions League - Women
Muszyna, Poland, November 15, 2012. Lokomotiv BAKU – one of the rookies in this year’s CEV Volleyball Champions League – scored tonight its third consecutive win in preliminary Pool F by edging the hosts of Bank BPS Fakro MUSZYNA with the score of 3:1 (25-20, 11-25, 25-17, and 25-15) to firmly keep its leadership in the group.
Lokomotiv opened by scoring the first four points of the match and even though MUSZYNA briefly went up 6:4, the first section of the game was comfortably controlled by the team from Azerbaijan.
MUSZYNA got back on track in set 2 with the head coach of Lokomotiv, Giuseppe Cuccarini, who was forced to ask for an early time-out; Bank BPS Fakro went up 8:3 and then scored five points in a row to pave the way for the final, massive 25-11.
The third set was initially very close and even though Lokomotiv regularly set the pace by a slim margin, MUSZYNA did not surrender that easily before BAKU wrapped it up at 25-17 with a good final rush.
The hosts looked lost at the beginning of the fourth set with Lokomotiv quickly going up 5:0. The guests from Azerbaijan gradually widened the gap (15:6) with another 4:0 run and could finish it off at 25-15 for their third consecutive win in the competition.
