Austria stuns Slovakia as Belgium scores second win
2013 CEV Volleyball European League - Men

Vienna, Austria, June 14, 2013. After losing their opening game to Belgium on Thursday, the home heroes of Austria could celebrate their first win in prelim Pool A of the 2013 CEV Volleyball European League as on Friday they edged their neighbors from Slovakia 3:1 (24-22, 15-21, 21-18, and 21-19) at Budocenter in Vienna. Austria needed 91 minutes to score a much deserved win for the joy of 350 supporters. Later in the evening Belgium claimed their second win of the competition by seeing off Denmark in three straight sets (21-16, 22-20, and 21-19).
“It makes fun to watch my guys play Volleyball as they did tonight” says Austrian mentor Michael Warm. “They always play with great intensity and glowing hearts but sometimes they are not really rewarded for this. However, it is just wonderful how they regrouped and played today. We have invested so much in the past years to compensate for the gap from the European elite and it is great to edge Slovakia that finished fifth at the last edition of the European Championship”.
“Austria confirmed yesterday’s good performance with Belgium. They served well, defended a lot and they caused us problems with their good combinations. On the other hand, we could not score the big points” stresses Slovak head coach Stefan Chrtiansky. “This made the difference tonight and Austria deservedly won the game”.
In their winning effort the home heroes were paced by Thomas Zass and Alexander Berger who registered 18 and 13 points respectively. Three Slovak players finished the game in double digits, with Peter Michalovic top scoring with 14 followed by Emanuel Kohut and Stefan Chrtiansky jr. with 13 and 11.  

In the other match of the day Belgium claimed their second win of the tournament to top the charts of the Pool by seeing off Denmark in three straight sets (21-16, 22-20, and 21-19). “This match was less tough than yesterday’s fixture with Austria” said Belgian head coach Dominique Baeyens. “We played three sets instead of five but it was not an easy game. In every single set we had our problems and the score remained tight. With this scoring system and the sets being so short, every point counts much more. The Danish team has got a good potential but today they made too many mistakes. Finally we are happy with winning in three sets because we got some more rest before our match tomorrow with Slovakia”. Belgium was paced by Hendrik Tuerlinckx who scored 16 points while Simon Van de Voorde contributed 10 and Pieter Coolman added 9 to the count. “Belgium has many skilled players. They have a complete array of Volleyball skills, with good serve, excellent blocking, they can do all. Their team is well developed and organized. Yesterday we had played good in the first and second set but had problems in the third. Today we did good things in each set. My players improve tactically every single day by playing good teams such as Belgium or Slovakia. They make us work hard for every point” said Denmark’s mentor Fred Sturm whose side was once more paced by Mads Ditlevsen with 15 points.
