Another 4 matches of Round 18 of French Ligue A were played yesterday. After the stop in Poitiers, leaders Montpellier back to victory, beating Narbonne at home after a thrilling tie-break. Top scorer of the match Sclater with 20 points and 49% in attack, and MVP Mendez with 19 and an excellent 57% in attack (Look at photogallery of the match).
To second place rises Cannes who, with an amazing performance, managed to return the home 0-3 of the first leg to Tourcoing. The guests are more effective from the service line (8 aces and 13 errors against 3 aces and 16 errors), and thus works better even in blocking (5 winners against 1). Top scorer of the match Williams with 14 points, including the ace that closes the game and MVP Averill with 10/10, 100% in attack, 1 block and 1 ace. Then Tourcoing is also overtaken in the standings by Tours (with Wounembaina who returns in sextet), that wins 3-1 against Poitiers. Guests come back from 20:13 in the 3rd set but, in the fourth set, Tours always remains ahead, leading the game. Good performances for the hosts for Udrys, Aracaju and El Graoui, named MVP of the match with 17 points and 67% in attack. Chaumont’s 3-1 closes the picture with another excellent performance by their Cubans (Herrera top scorer of the match with 24 points and 4 winning blocks, and Mergarejo MVP of the match with 20 points, 65% in attack) over Toulouse, also without Madsen as well as long-term Faure.
