Belgian ladies emulate their compatriots to make it six in a row
2013 CEV Volleyball European League - Women

Subotica, Serbia, June 23, 2013. On Sunday Belgium swept away Israel 3:0 (21-12, 21-17, and 21-15) to prolong their winning streak in prelim Pool B of the 2013 CEV Volleyball European League – Women to six consecutive matches. Angie Bland of Belgium topped the scorers’ chart with 12 points, while Anna Velikiy registered 8 for Israel.
The teams were leveled only at the very start of the match, but then Belgium got off to a 7:5 and 14:10 lead, and after that it was a matter of routine for the Belgian ladies to wrap it up at 21-12. In the second set the teams were even all the way until 7:7 on the scoreboard, when Israel created a 3-point gap (10:7). They preserved the lead at the technical time-out (12:9). After the break, Belgium managed to tie at 14:14. From that moment on, Israel only scored three points as Belgium finished at 21-17 to take a 2:0 lead in sets. Like in the previous two sets, Israel was an equal rival only thru mid-stage of the set, when Belgium created a gap and never looked back. In the end, it was a well deserved 21-15 and 3:0 win for the Belgian “tigers”.
Gert Vande Broek, head coach of Belgium: “I feel proud of my team, because we fought well and we stayed unbeaten throughout the two tournaments. Israel, for their part, is playing better in each match and they are on the right track”.
Charlotte Leys, team captain of Belgium: “I am really happy for this victory. It was a very difficult game, but we fought hard and we deserved to win. Now we are looking forward to the upcoming matches and I hope we will continue to play well”.
Arie Selinger, head coach of Israel: “I think this is a lot better match than the previous one. I expect we play even better in Germany”.
Moran Zur, team captain of Israel: “Belgium has been playing very well up to this moment. We played ok today, but not good enough. We must try harder in the following weeks”.  

In the last match of the tournament held this weekend in Subotica, Germany crushed the home heroines of Serbia 3:0 (21-7, 21-16, and 21-9) in front of 600 spectators. Margareta Anna Kozuch and Christiane Fürst of Germany topped the scorers’ chart with 10 points each.
Germany started furiously and went up 8:1 in the first set. Serbia managed to cut the distance to only two points (6:8), but from that moment on Germany scored 10 consecutive points for the 18:6. In the end, it was an easy 21-7 to Germany in the first set. In the second set, after a couple of initial ties, Germany took off to 8:5. Serbia cut the distance to 7:8, but that was it for the hosts. Germany went up 10:7 and 12:8 and routinely wrapped it up at 21-16 to take the lead of 2:0 in sets. In the third set, it was all over before the technical time-out, as the German ladies earned 6 points of advantage (12:6). Serbia could not find any solutions to stop the inspired Germans, who easily finished the job at 21-9 for the final 3:0 victory.
Aleksandar Vladisavljev, head coach of Serbia: “We expected a lot more from this match, but today we played against true European vice-champions who were in full swing. They were excellent and we could do absolutely nothing against such an inspired team”.
Jelena Blagojevic, team captain of Serbia: “We wanted to win, but we started badly, we fell under their influence and we could not get into the rhythm. They were better today and that is the fact. I am sorry for the fans, but we will do our best to improve and get as much experience as we can from these matches”.
Giovanni Guidetti, head coach of Germany: “Yesterday we played so bad, but today we reacted very well and strong, and I am overwhelmed with this result”.
Margareta Anna Kozuch, team captain of Germany: “I am satisfied with our reaction after yesterday’s game, we played an excellent match and I hope we will continue with such good performances also next week in Hamburg”.
