På förhand såg det ut som det skulle bli en kort process när serieledande Hylte/Halmstad Volleybollklubb tog emot långresande IKSU. Det blev en match på 58 minuter och hela laget luftades under lördagseftermiddagen.
I laget ifrån norr spelar sedan några år tillbaka en f.d. Hylte/Halmstad-spelare, Cornelia Kjellström. Att få hälsa henne välkommen, tillsammans med sitt nya lag, var riktigt kul.
Segern över IKSU igår var annars en ordentlig lagseger och headcoach Pedro Mendes säger efter matchen
It was a solid win with different players stepping up from time to time. Our setter Clarisa Sagardia did a good Job spreading our offense in a way that led us to an incredible attack efficiency.
Our Level of energy is always extremely high and it is super fun to see the players enjoying to be on the court regardless of who they are facing across the net. Once again I felt that our reception was very stable allowing us to have a comfortable Side-Out. Our receivers put a lot of time into it every week,So it is very satisfying for everyone to see the hard work paying off during the match.
We knew IKSU are a team that sets position 4 a lot, so we had as a strategy to slow down their rhythm by serving with consistency and putting pressure in block against their outside hitter and it seemed to pay off for us.
Our focus now is for next week’s preparation against Värnamo on the road next Saturday. They are a young team with a lot of energy and some very interesting players.
Hylte/Halmstad vinner lördagens match med 3 – 0 (25-10, 25-13, 25-9)
