The two advances of French Ligue A Round 18 were played yesterday evening. Thanks to Cox back on the field (after the stop for a shoulder problem), author of 23 points, and the positive entry of Krastins in the fifth set (3/3 in attack), Nice interrupts a series of 7 consecutive defeats, beating surprise Tourcoing (despite Jimenez’s 28 points and 11 aces, against only 3 of the winners).
Instead the winning streak of Nantes does not stop: Cannes dominates the first two sets, but after the entry of Josserand on Zonca, and after the 10-minute break between the second and third sets, the situation is completely reversed and the guests take their fifth straight win. Michalovic was stellar: 34 points for him. Aciobanitei and Russell scored 25 each for Cannes. Curious fact: 11 winning blocks in total for both sides, and 6 aces each! (PHOTOGALLERY OF THE MATCH)
