France – Quarterfinals Game 1: what a comeback for Chaumont! Cambrai stun Narbonne, Cannes and Montpellier ok

2 min read

Game 1 of the quarterfinals of French Ligue A were played on Saturday evening. The only side among the worst placed in the regular season to win was Cambrai who surprisingly beat Narbonne 3-0. After a decline in the final phase of the regular season, the opposite Daniel Cagliari has returned to his standards (20 points and 62% in attack), leading his team to victory even if the MVP award went to the Libero Kroiss.
The other 3-0 of the evening was scored by the regular season winner Montpellier, who won in 3 sets on the field of Poitiers, redeeming the defeat suffered in the regular season, and this time without too much difficulty. Definitely bad evening for the opposite of Chizoba, who finished on the bench with 2 points and -14% efficiency in attack (replaced by the young Czech Sotola).
Fluctuating challenge between Tourcoing and Cannes, that ended at tie break, with the guests who did better in serving (9 aces and 12 errors against 6 aces and 21 errors) and in attack (65%, against 53% of Tourcoing). MVP the setter Danilo Gelinski, author of an almost perfect performance.
Chaumont also wins at the tie-break, able to recover a 2-0 disadvantage, but also 2 match points saved at 26:25 and 27:26 in the 3rd set, on the field of Tours. Another bad evening for Brazilian Lucas Loh (replaced by Lomba) and so the 18 points (86% in attack, 4 blocks and 2 aces) of the middle-blocker Aracaju were not enough to contain the comeback of Herrera (MVP and top scorer of the match) and his team.
