France: Sète, Cambrai and Chaumont win advances of Round 7. Another defeat for Cannes and Tourcoing

2 min read

Three matches of French Ligue A valid for Round 7 were played last evening. Straight sets victory for Chaumont on the field of Toulouse, and the formation coached by Italian expert Prandi has thus reached Tours at the top of the standings. Both teams now boast 13 points (but Tours will play today the difficult match against Montpellier, another candidate for the title).
The hosts, who wasted an advantage of 23-21 in the first set and 5 set points in the third, were betrayed by their bomber, the Brazilian opposite Daniel Cagliari (only 3 points and -43% efficiency in attack) , while the same role Herrera, on the other side of the net, was MVP of the match with 17 points, 63% in attack and 54% efficiency, and 2 aces.
Instead, it is a crisis for the defending champions Cannes and Tourcoing.
The first lost at home to Cambrai by 1-3 in a remake of last season’s semifinal, with an embarrassing Nelli: the Italian opposite was replaced already in the first set, due to the 0/8 in attack. But the bad luck also continues: in the third set the hosts lost another middle-blocker, Georgiev, to injury (after Manuohalalo, injured in the match against Paris).
As for Tourcoing, they were defeated in Séte with the same score, under the blows of Karlitzek (26 points, 68% in attack and 48% efficiency, 1 block and 4 aces), despite the incredible performance by the Olympic bronze medalist middle-blocker Agustin Loser (27 points, 85% in attack without errors and without blocked, 8 winning blocks and 2 aces, with only 2 errors in serving!), thwarted by the 0/13 in attack (with also 2 errors and 2 blocked) of the outside-hitter Felipi Rammé (again deployed in the starting six in place of Vaccari).
