EuroVolley ended for Jurassic Knights

Created: 20.09.2019

 

Both Aluron Virtu CMC Zawiercie players finished their participation in the EuroVolley at the group stage. Portugal with Alex Ferreira as well as Montenegro with Vojin Ćaćic were close to the Top 16. Unfortunately, both teams lost their fight to advance to the knockout phase in dramatic circumstances.

Both Jurassic Knights’ teams kept their chances until the very end. Portugal lacked… one small point to finish 4th in Group A! In the last match, the team captained by Alex Ferreira unfortunately lost to Romania 1-3. It meant that as many as three teams ended with the same number of wins, match points and set ratio. Furthermore, the Portuguese and Greeks also scored exactly the same number of small points. After accurate calculations it turned out that Greece lost one point less during five games and this led them to the 1/8 finals, to despair of players from the Iberian Peninsula.

Montenegro needed to grab 3 points against the Czech Republic. Vojin Ćaćić and his colleagues were already leading 2-1, but at the very end of the decisive set rivals turned out to be better and won 25-21. To wipe the tears Montenegrins won fifth set 15-13 which gave them the second victory in the tournament, but it was enough only to take 5th place in group D.
