Vojvodina rally to comprehensive victory over Romanian rivals
2017 CEV Volleyball Cup - Men
Novi Sad, Serbia, January 12, 2017. Serbia’s Vojvodina NS Seme NOVI SAD played a great match on Wednesday night, causing a little surprise by rallying to a comprehensive 3-0 victory (25-16, 25-21, 25-22) over Romania’s C.S. Arcada GALATI in the first match on schedule for their 2017 CEV Volleyball Cup – Men 16th Finals tie.
Passionately supported by 410 fans in attendance, the young players of Vojvodina caught a flying start to the match, put pressure with their serve, making very few mistakes and doing extremely well in attack. They set the pace from start to end of the first set (8-5, 16-11, 25-16) and even changes made by the Romanian coaching staff could not prevent Vojvodina from cruising to a compelling 3-0 victory. The re-match will be taking place next Wednesday, January 18 in Romania.
Nedzad Osmankac, head coach of Vojvodina commented: “We did almost have no time to prepare for this match but we played the best we can at this moment. Any victory in the European Cups means a lot to us. However, I was expecting more resistance from the side of C.S. Arcada GALATI. They did not come with their full roster and I am sure the remake next week will be a completely different match.”
