2 min read

After yesterday’s advance, in which Tours down Paris on the road in four sets, Round 17 of 2022/23 Ligue A has been completed today.

The day started with the third win in a row of Narbonne (after Poitiers and Tours), this time on the field of Plessis-Robinson, 1-3 (24:26, 26:28, 25:19, 21:25). Captain Danilo Gelinski was named MVP of the game, but decisive was also the performance from the service line, and the 9 aces!

No.2 and No.3 in the standings, Saint Nazaire and Nantes, both suffered defeats.
The first one on the field of Sète, with a heavy 3-0 (25:18, 26:24, 25:8), with a third set to be forgotten, a bad performance in attack (37%) and no players in double digit), while Nantes has been defeated by Poitiers 2-3 (19:25, 25:18, 25:23, 23:25, 13:15), after wasting a 2-1 lead. Gabriel Candido put down 21 points for the winners, while Chizoba Neves Atu ended the game as absolute top scorer with 33 points!

At fourth place in the current charts, but now with the same number of points of Nantes is Chaumont, who today beat a very bad Toulouse 3-0 (25:20, 26:24, 25:14) in front of their home fans, led by MVP Nathan Wounembaina (top scorer of the match with 16 points through 55% in attack including 1 block and 4 aces).

Three points also for Tourcoing, who down titleholders Montpellier on the road by 1-3 (17:25, 25:19, 23:25, 15:25), with four players in double digit: Renan Buiatti, top scorer with 20 points through 62% in attack and 2 winning blocks, Moritz Reichert (4 aces) and Ryley Barnes with 15 points each, and Lukas Vanberkel with 10.

Close the picture the battle between last-placed Cambrai and Nice, closed only at tie break by (18:25, 25:23, 21:25, 25:16, 17:19) the visiting side, in what was also a great duel between two opposites: Cambrai’s Hermans Egleskalns, who put down 29 points (2 aces, 1 block and 55% in attack), and Nice’s Celestin Cardin, who replied with 29 points too (3 aces, 1 block and 71% in attack). On the winning side, decisive also captain Steven Marshall, who also contributed with 17 points (50% in attack, 3 winning blocks and 1 ace) and Rodney Ah-Kong, 12 points, 88% in attack and 5 winning blocks.
