Despite playing without both opposites, Berlin defend title of German Supercup!
Berlin Recycling Volleys defended the title in the German volleyball Super Cup!
In the first competitive game of the new season in the German male volleyball, the team from the country’s capital beat the hosts United Volleys Frankfurt in three tight and balanced sets, partially 29:27, 25:22, and 25:22. Berlin’s victory is even more valuable given they played the match at the Fraport Arena without both opposites enlisted in the roster for the 2020/21 season: American Benjamin Patch and Brazilian Davy Moraes!
Patch’s compatriot, the outside hitter Cody Kessel, was the substitute on the opposite position. The Frenchman Timothée Carle top-scored Berlin with 18 points, Anton Brehme made 4 blocks, while Julian Zenger had 75 % reception and 31 % perfect.
Daniel Malescha was United Volleys’ top scorer with 17 points.
