29-02-2020 Kladno – Budejovice 0-3

Saturday we played again a homegame, this time against Budejovice. Our fans were already early in the hall for a meet & greet and play some volleyball with us on the court. A nice start of the day for us and for all fans, after we wanted to get important points for the ranking and show we could play better than the losing cupfinal of last week.

The first set we started good and we were leading till 20-20 the whole set. The atmosphere was great, a lot of people came tot the hall to support us. At the end we made some own mistakes and by this way Budejovice ended the set on their first setpoint. Unfortunately we lose this set by 23-25.

The losing of the first set was going on in the 2nd set. We started very bad and couldn’t score the first points. Directly Budejovice was leading 6-1, this head start they didn’t give away anymore. With a good playing opposite and team block of Budejovice we couldn’t come closer to them. The end result of the second set was 18-25.

Last chanche in set three to change the game, but unfornately we started too late in this set. Budejovice had directly a gap of three points and didn’t give this away anymore. With the score of 22-25 ended the match in 0-3 for Budejovice. Not the result and performance we hoped for before the match. Next week we play in Zlin, hopefully with a good week of training our game will improve and with more fighting spirit and confidence we will go for 3 points.
