CL title-holders Lokomotiv open with strong performance at Club World Champs
News from the FIVB

Betim, Brazil, October 17, 2013. Russia’s Lokomotiv NOVOSIBIRSK, winners of the 2013 CEV Volleyball Champions League, debuted on Wednesday at the 2013 FIVB Men’s Club World Championship by routing their opponents from the Dominican Republic, Deportivo La Romana, in straight sets (25-20, 25-23, and 25-17). Lokomotiv is Europe’s second representative in the competition alongside four-time club world champions TRENTINO Diatec of Italy that on Tuesday started their campaign with a 3:1 victory over Iran’s Kalleh Sports Club.
Pavel Moroz (pictured) and Lukas Divis topped the scoring of Lokomotiv with 13 points apiece, followed by Cuban-born Oreol Camejo who finished with 12.
“In this game the important thing is not who attacks harder but who makes fewer mistakes,” Lokomotiv’s team captain Alexander Butko commented afterwards.
The coach Andrey Voronkov added: “Our team was short of energy and we need to play more concentrated.”  

On Wednesday Brazil’s Sada Cruzeiro beat Sportif Sfaxien of Tunisia (25-16, 25-17, and 25-15) to clinch a spot in the semi-finals with a win-loss record of 2-0 in Pool B. It was a splendid show of Volleyball displayed by the local team with almost perfect execution throughout the match against a helpless Sfaxien team that was completely dominated. Cuban-born Yoandy Leal and Wallace Souza each scored 11 points to spearhead the neat balanced offence of the winning side.
“I am very happy with the qualification to the semi-final round,” Sada Cruzeiro’s coach Marcelo Méndez expressed. “The team is improving but we still need to have better services against the stronger teams like the Russian and the Italian.”  

In the other match of day 2, Panasonic Panthers of Japan evened their record at 1-1 with a strong victory over Iran’s Kalleh in Pool A by scores of 25-19, 24-26, 30-28, and 25-16. Kunihiro Shimizu enjoyed a superb game with 27 points, including three aces and three blocks, to lead the victory of the Japanese club, while Brazilian Dante Amaral contributed 16 points.
“Even though they (Kalleh) say they don’t have the experience I am quite impressed with their ability and their physical skills,” Panasonic’s coach Masashi Nambu stated. “We are very happy with the victory and taking the tournament as a learning experience.”
