1 min read

Games 2 of French Ligue A semi-finals were played on Saturday evening.
Cannes is the first finalist! Despite the heavy absence of the US middle-blocker Averill, MVP of Game 1 in Cambrai, due to plantar fasciitis, but well replaced by Rodiguez (13 points, 59% and 3 blocks), they won at the tie-break after having canceled 2 consecutive match points at 22:24 of 4 Set (an attack by Williams and 2 blocks in a row by Cannes’ captain Klyamar reversed the situation until 25:24, and the set ended 30:28!).
MVP of the match Williams with 28 points, 3 aces and 52% in attack, while Klyamar made 6 (of Cannes’ 16!) winning blocks.
Cagliari made 16 points with Cambrai’s jersey.

In the other semifinal, Montpellier dominator of the regular season defeated Chaumont 3-1, taking the series to Game 3. The decisive moment of the match was the third set in which the guests recovered from 15:10, 22:18 and 23:20, but then they did not complete the work, failing a set point that could have directed the game differently at 25:26.
Ryan Sclater was the top scorer of the match with 26 points, 57% in attack, 3 blocks and 2 aces, but MVP of the match was Palacios, 12 points, 2 blocks and 42% in attack.
Decisive duel is scheduled today!
