Jocurile Europene Baku 2015 – Volei feminin – Grupa A, etapa 3
Polonia – România : 3 – 0 (25-23, 25-15, 25-16)
In a forceful manifestation of complete volleyball, Poland upset Romania 3:0 in the first match of the day in Pool A. Romanian squad’s dreams of achieving its first victory were halted in this encounter by a Polish side that controlled the game from beginning to end.
Romania stepped into the court desperatley searching for a first triumph in the competition, and these wishes of victory helped Guillermo Gallardo’s ladies as the young Romanians took the initiative in the first set. However, Poland progressively settled into the court and brushed off their rivals’ drive to regain control of the period and subsequently close the set 25-23.
With the defeat in the previous period weighing on their initial enthusiasm, anxiety made its appearance in Romania’s side of the net. Poland took this situation as an opportunity to impose their error-free performance, so to earn a growing advantage and to dominate the set. With a back-court spike by Katarzyna Zaroslinska, Poland convincingly stated their domination in the match 25-15.
Poland continued their implacable run in the match, as the offensive display by Anna Werblinska and Katarzyna Zaroslinska served Jacek Nawrocki’s ladies to control clearly the game. The lack of errors in Polish performance offered no opportunities for Romania to grasp for some air in the match, and differences in the third set kept growing. Poland just had to maintain their efficiency to finish the set 25-16 and the match 3:0.
“I have a lot of emotions inside me right now. This victory is so important for us, because it decided whether we were in or out of the tournament. And we want to be here so much. The first set was very important. It was very close, but we managed to win it, which made the match for us. Even though this was a match that we should win, Romania did not make it easy for us,” said Anna Werblinska, scoring 12 points in today’s match.
“The first set was the only one in which Poland gave us options. Today we presented a young lineup and they did not know how to solve the important moments of the game. After the first set, Poland imposed a greater pressure on us and we were unable to keep our bearings against that situation,“ declared the coach of Romania, Guillermo Gallardo.
