The Saturday 21.10.2017 turned out to be not just successful, but also a surprising day for our team.
It started a little stressing: on the half-way to Göttingen we suddenly found out, that our uniform had been left in Hannover. Luckily, our warm-up T-shirts fit the requirements: there was a sign of GfL there and most of them had numbers. So, the problem was solved, and we could concentrate on winning the game.
11 of us were ready to step on the court: middle blockers Eva, Iris and Lena B.; diagonals Wendy, Laura M. and Lea, outside spikers Kristin, Claire, Lena F., the libero Ani and the setter Nastia. And we all performed very well that day.
While the game we showed strong, stable and productive serves, which brought us a lot of points, and simultaneously – a lot of troubles to our opponent. Our reception and defense were stable and let us „stay in the game“ all the time, despite of strong floating serves of ASC Göttingen. In fact, it allowed us to actively and productively attack through the middle and the opponent was almost never able to block it.
Due to our serves (and aces) we won the 1st set quite securely (25:19). After that we started the 2nd one relatively relaxed, and let ASC Göttingen win it (20:25). In the 3rd set we brought the full power to the court and won it (25:17). But we still had the important 4th set ahead. Unexpectadly (and luckily), we got an extra support from the GfL´s „5. Herren“. Having finished their games in Göttingen, they came to support us with „all force“, in other words – with a big drum. Having that explosive energy, we had no other choice – we won the set (25:17).
At the moment this season is successful for us: 3 out of 4 games are won, the 2nd position in the table. And we´re looking forward to our next home games to get even a better ratio wins-to-games!
Eure 1. Damen.
