Ploiesti, Romania, April 24, 2019. The second round of qualifications for this year’s #EuroVolleyU16W / #EuroVolleyU17M started on Wednesday in Ploiesti in a very promising way for the home teams of Romania, who recorded 3-1 victories over Estonia (U17 Men) and Latvia (U16 Women), respectively. Earlier in the day, the U17 men’s national team of Slovenia started their quest for a spot in the Final Round by claiming a comprehensive 3-0 victory over Denmark.

U17 Men

Slovenia vs. Denmark 3-0 (25-21, 25-13, 25-20)

The competition in Ploiesti started with Slovenia storming to a comprehensive 3-0 victory over Denmark. Slovenia were on a class of their own and easily routed Denmark, who were never able to edge ahead. Slovenia claimed an early lead in each one of the three sets and widened it by means of their powerful spikes. The match was an easy ride for Slovenia, who are now waiting for much more demanding challenges from the following matches with Estonia and Romania coming up on April 25 and 26, respectively.

Romania vs. Estonia 3-1 (25-20, 22-25, 25-23, 25-19)

Romania dominated the second match of the day, yet Estonia managed to clinch the second set after scoring multiple times with a few successful spikes. The third set flew by with Romania getting back in the game and eventually winning the whole match.

U16 Women

Latvia vs. Romania 1-3 (10-25, 12-25, 25-23, 19-25)

As many expected, hosts Romania were too strong for their visitors from Latvia. Even though Latvia emerged victorious from the third set, Romania did not lose composure and rallied to a comprehensive 3-1 victory, thus providing a good boost to their morale for the remainder of the tournament.
