2 min read

Ziraat Bankkart were better than Arkas Spor in the big match at the closing of Round 6 of the 2021/22 AXA Sigorta Efeler Ligi.
Ziraat got themselves the fifth win in a row, and this time did it over another title contender.
The Ankara side prevailed in four sets on the road, inflicting the second defeat in a row to Arkas in the competition, despite the team from Izmir made a great start to the season with four victories in a row. The Dutchman Wouter Ter Maat staged a masterly display with 35 points (55% in attack, 43% efficiency, 3 blocks e 3 aces), while Bedirhan Bülbül and Faik Samed Güneş set up five blocks each.
The winners made a great comeback from 22-18 in third set, with also 3 set points cancelled, and from 20-16 and 24-22 in fourth set. All despite the absence of starting settet Eksi, Camejo not at his best and Atanasov replaced by Yucel after a -13% efficiency in attack. For Arkas, positive day in serving (10 aces e 13 errors against 5 aces e 17 errors), but negative in attack (42% and only 18% efficiency vs. 44% but with 29% efficiency of the rivals) with a bad Gabriel Candido. The opposite ended the match sit on the bench with 37% in attack and 0% efficiency. Moreover, 18 are the blocks suffered by Glenn Hoag’s team.

On the other match of the day, Avşar Maden Suyu Afyon Bld. Yüntaş made first win this season, by beating Tokat Bld. Plevne 3-1, who suffered Alisson Melo’s absence. Cansın Ogbai Enaboifo top-scored the winning side with 24 points and had 76% reception (25 digs, two errors, 44% perfect), while Ediz Kaan Fırıncıoğlu made five blocks.

Afyon, so far winless and at the bottom of the ranking, tried to reinforce themselves with 2 new outside-hitters: from Russia (last season he was at Yenisey Krasnoyarsk) Nikita Axyutin, while from Solhan (with whom he terminated his contract 2 weeks ago) Kadir Cin, who made his debut just on this match.
