Hermes OOSTENDE complete #CEVChallengeCupW quarterfinals
2018 CEV Volleyball Challenge Cup - Women

Luxembourg, February 8, 2018. Hermes OOSTENDE (BEL) stepped up after losing three sets to book their tickets to the #CEVChallengeCupW quarterfinals at Tent OBRENOVAC (SRB) in the very last second during the Golden Set.

  • Tent OBRENOVAC beat Hermes OOSTENDE 3-0 (25-21, 25-16, 25-22) to force the game into the Golden Set, where they eventually fell 13-15 to the Belgians.
  • The home squad from OBRENOVAC led 11-9 in the all-deciding Golden Set, but eventually gave the game away.
  • Jelena Lazic of Tent OBRENOVAC could not lead her team to the #CEVChallengeCupW quarterfinals although she outshone everybody with 26 points (including three blocks).
  • Tent OBRENOVAC gathered 12 block points over the entire game. However, while the Serbian team scored at least three block points per set in the first three sets, the home squad were not able to build on this strong performance in the Golden Set.

Marijana Boričić, coach of Tent OBRENOVAC: “The Golden Set is always a gamble, no matter if you play away or at home in front of your home crowd. It is a pity, though. But I have to point out once again that the girls gave their maximum. We have had many problems with injuries. We could not gather 10 players for training sessions, even some staff members were missing, so under these circumstances it was impossible to do more than we did tonight. After all, I am really thrilled with such a big support from the stands, this was a real spectacle for the city, and you can feel a positive atmosphere all around. People need this kind of matches, and we will make it possible again soon, I am sure.”

Frederik De Veylder, head coach of Hermes OOSTENDE: “They were better prepared than in our home game. Their blocking game was very good, and we did not find the right answer to it. But I think we changed a little bit the roles in the team and we found some response to their block in the end.”
