We showed that we can
19 dec 2016
KFUM Göteborg Dam B - IK Ymer
0-3 (22-25, 21-25, 20-25)
Yesterday evening Dam B Göteborg drove till Borås to meet one of the strongest teams in the league. With lack of main players due to Christmas vacation we 'upgraded' one player to the position of center and we used one of the players that train with us occasionally from the young team.
I believe we showed character and good volleyball against a team with very strong spikes, qood surves but not stable defense. While loosing 17-15 on the first set, we reached 20-20 and then we lost 25- 22 but with good fight spirit.
In the second set the setters and one center player was changed with the last minute-thank you -for the support A-team players who drove from Lund to Borås. We started very well, and with the points going from 7-7, 8-10 for Göteborg, 19-18, then we started loosing points (maybe because of their good surves or spikes) until the
set ended 25-21.
In the third set, we kept our fight spirit but due to some mis-synchronization and mistakes the set finished at 25-20.
Overall, we are very satisfied to have such a game against the specific opponents. All players felt that for first time we were playing as a team and that we had good communication amomg us.
We have much better serves and less mistakes to that part.
The block was not very effective this time but we will fix it.
Some flexibility is missing in changing strategies during the game and when needed to take decisions fast.
We will meet this team again in the league so we have things to adjust for them :)
