France: no major upsets in first six matches of Round 9

2 min read

Six matches of French Ligue A Round 9 were played tonight and, standings in the hand, all ended without major upsets.
Leaders Tours remain unbeaten, with
a four sets victory against Toulouse with 22 points by Baranek (1 ace, 5 blocks, and 62% in attack).
Remains at -2 Narbonne, who defeats newcomers Plessis-Robinson with the same results, with an amazing performance by Argentine middle-blocker Zerba: 17 points, 91% in attack and 7 blocks!
But amazing also his compratriot and same-role Loser: 19 points, 83% in attack, 3 blocks e 1 ace in away 3-0 of Tourcoing on the field of once again bad Cannes, still without Nelli and Georgiev.
Away straight-sets win also for Montpellier: Faure, injured, is well replaced by Cardin. Nothing to do, on the other hand, for Cambrai, without starting opposite Tupchii, replaced by Lalisse and then by Pepin.
About starting opposite, Paris recover Lawani, back in the sextet, to celebrate a 3-2 home win over Nice.
Close the picture the away victory of Séte: 3-1 on the field of still last-placed Poitiers. Chizoba was the top scorer of the match, with 28 points, but he wasn’t enough against Sclater (24 points and MVP of the match) and Karlitzek, who also contributed with 18.
