France: Cannes wins the battle against Ajaccio in advance of Round 20
The game played yesterday evening, the advance of French Ligue A Round 20, was probably not suitable for a heart patient! After a game of the highest level, Cannes beat Ajaccio after a spectacular battle lasted 5 sets, in front of their home fans. With an uncertain result until the end, and particularly in the fourth set where the hosts had 9 match balls (and they saved 3 set balls), Ajaccio managed to win to get the tie-break, putting the ball down 37:39!
Everything had started well for the home team, but with a second set probably mishandled (21:25). However, they destroy rivals 15:7 in the fifth sets, to take a good position for the playoffs: momentarily (the other matches of the Round will be played today), Cannes has the same number of points as Poitiers (today in Chaumont), 26, and it is at the ninth place, behind Toulouse (which plays today on the Narbonne field) and Ajaccio (both with 27 points).
Miseikis has an amazing performance for Ajaccio, putting down 32 points, while captain Radic made 6 winning blocks! Russell and Aciobanitei top-scored for the winners with 28 points each.
