The journey of last year’s semi-finalists 1.MCM-Diamant KAPOSVAR continues after they recorded a 3-1 home victory (25-19, 20-25, 25-15, 2511) to go with their 3-0 away win last week in Israel at Maccabi HADERA. The hosts were the clear-cut favourites of this re-match but the Israelis managed to stay in contention after winning the second set. Playing in front of their supporters, the home side improved their performance to a higher level and finished the match with two easy set wins. Team captain Tatjana Matic top scored with 16 points followed by Nikalina Bashnakova and Nathalie Lemmens with 15 apiece.
“With the exception of the second set, we had full control of the game. We can be proud that we help with the promotion of Hungarian Volleyball in Europe. I hope we can have a couple of good matches in the next round.”Vincent Lacombe
Head coach of 1.MCM-Diamant KAPOSVAR
