Sensational home win for rookie Tomis CONSTANTA
2013 CEV Volleyball Champions League - Men

Constanta, Romania, November 15, 2012. Rookie Tomis CONSTANTA eventually claimed its first win in the prelims of the 2013 CEV Volleyball Champions League after having been assigned to what is unanimously seen as the “iron group”. Tomis edged on Thursday a very tough opponent, Turkey’s Fenerbahce Grundig ISTANBUL, in straight sets (25-18, 25-23, and 25-20) thereby delighting the local fans that had contributed a great atmosphere for the second home match of their heroes.
Fenerbahce actually caught the better start going up 8:6 in the first set but Tomis fought back to set the pace at 12:10 and 16:11; Fenerbahce attempted a comeback, reducing the difference to only two points (18:16), but Tomis brought it home quite easily with the score of 25-18.
The hosts opened strong also in the second set (8:7 and 10:9) but Fenerbahce flipped the charts around (13:16) supported by Ivan Miljkovic, who scored 14 points all alone in this match. However, Fenerbahce could not find a way to stand the serve of Dan Borota and Tomis cruised to the front (19:16); after a tie at 21, helped by the loud home fans, Tomis wrapped it up at 25-23 for the 2:0.
Tomis dictated the pace of the game all the way through in set 3 (8:7, 12:9, 16:12 and 21:15) being paced by Olli-Pekka Ojansivu, MVP of the game in the end with 19 points. The final 25-20 and 3:0 sealed a magic and memorable night for the side from the Black Sea.

“We played very bad and Tomis deserved this win” commented Fenerbahce head coach Daniele Bagnoli. “We tried our best but it just did not work. Many things will change anyway for the return match in Istanbul” added Miljkovic.
“Players and fans did a great job tonight. We knew what we had to do to win this game and this is an extremely important win for our club” said home mentor Radovan Gacic. “We knew we needed a win to remain in contention for a spot in the next round. Fenerbahce is a good team and the return game in Istanbul will be difficult” added Tomis setter Javier Gonzalez.
