France: Tours (3-0 over Narbonne) and Montpellier (1-3 on the field of Chaumont) win Game 1 of semifinals

1 min read

Semifinals of Ligue A started today.

It was not a good start for No.2 Chaumont, who granted 36 errors to Montpellier and succumbed 1-3 (22:25, 25:18, 22:25, 21:25) at home against No.3 Montpellier.
The guests, who take advantage for the bad day of the rivals, including Herrera, top scorer with 19 points but with only 40% in attack and 20% efficiency, were led by setter Javier Gonzalez, named MVP of the match and author also of 6 points (3 blocks and 3/3 in attacks), and an excellent Demyanenko, with 10 points, 1 block and 90% in attack.

On the other match, absolute regular season winners Tours defeat Narbonne in only three sets (25:17, 25:17, 31-29). First two sets absolutely one-sided, but then the guests tried to react with the right move: young outside-hitter Socie, practically never fielded in regular season, who revitalize Narbonne who, however, collapsed 31-29 after missed 4 set points.
Tillie was named MVP of the match with 16 points, 76% in attack with 0 errors and 0 blocked.
