Turkey: Altekma down titleholders Ziraat and the other of Round 13

3 min read

Waiting for big match on Monday between Fenerbahce and Halkbank, 6 matches of 2021/22 AXA Sigorta Efeler Ligi Round 13, last of first leg, were played on Sunday.
Among the results, the news of the day is resounding home defeat at tie break of titleholders Ziraat Bankkart Ankara over modest Altekma, who finally seems to show good results after a disappointing start of the season. On the field again after a long absence also brazilian opposite Luan Weber.
Altekma, the member of the ’last four’ in the standings probably made the biggest upset in the competition.
The match was resolved in the tie-break and lasted two hours and 40 minutes, with as many as 48 minutes being reserved for the second set (37-35 for Ziraat) only! Altekma kept the same position (11) in the charts after the match, while Ziraat failed not only to temporary take over the lead, but might face with even bigger lag than the current two points in relation to the leading Halkbank, if they take a victory in the big and derby against Fenerbahçe HDI Sigorta. Altekma were led today by Brazilian Hugo Hamacher (21 points), Serbian Maksim Buculjević (four aces), and Cafer Kirkit (four blocks). Ziraat’s six-game winning streak, four-game streak in Efelerligi, is now over.

In big match of the day, Spor Toto defeats 3-2 after comeback (from 0-1 and 1-2) Galatasaray, led by Buchegger’s 28 points and Gungor’s 17. The guests played without Torres, an absence that forced Galatasaray to fielded Subasi as opposite. With this defeat, they closed first leg with a disappointing fifth place, overhelmed by Arkas Izmir, who recovered Mandiraci, and defeated Cizre in straight sets.
Close the picture home victories as predicted of Bursa over Solhan, of
Yeni Kiziltepe Spor over Tokat and of Sorgun over Afyon, who managed to take two sets and a point for the standings thanks, above all,
to very good debut of middle-blocker from Cameroon Mbativou, author of 8 winning blocks.
