Turkey: Halkbank wins the big match of Round 2. Victory also for Spor Toto, Arkas and Inegol

The first 4 matches of the Round 2 of the Turkish Efelerligi were played today. In the big match Halkbank, with a fantastic Hernandez (28 points, 69% in attack, 4 winning blocks and 2 ace) won 3-1 against the Ziraat of the equally positive Ter Maat (24 points, 72% in attack, 2 winning blocks and 1 ace). The formation coached by the Italian expert Medei has recovered Atanasov and Eksi (seasonal debut for the starting setter just recovered from coronavirus, who today entered the first 3 sets and played as starter in the fourth) but, after the first set, they were unable to contain the comeback of rivals who started to play better after Bayram entered instead of Gokgoz.
In the other games, 3-point victories of Inegol Bursa (for the first time complete, with the debut of Cuban Uriarte) over Solhan Spor, Arkas Izmir over Afyon (still top scorer the 18-year-old Mandiraci) and Spor Toto in which Wallace was decisive from the service line to overturn the third set from 24:21 to 24:26, on Bursa BBSK. The match became interesting after a start in favor of the guests that wasted an advantage of 11:15 in the 2nd set before winning 3-1.
