Saturday afternoon, visiting Hylte/Halmstad handed out another elitserien loss, as we dropped a 1-3 match. 

Solid backrow performances from both serve receive and defensive efforts gave way to a balanced and varied offensive attack throughout the match, and our attackers stepped up to take big responsibility to earn points with aggressive and powerful swings. As a team, this may have been one of our best block-defense performances of the season, earning 6 total blocks but allowing our backrow players to get touches on many hard attacks.

The effort showed by the full squad was exactly what we need to bring to the court for each match. If we continue with this level of play, we can be sure to earn many more victories as the season continues.


In the opening set, we pressured Hylte/Halmstad from all angles, stepping up to a 12-7 lead that quickly turned to 16-12 in our favor. Three costly hitting mistakes gave a glimmer of hope for the visitor's and they took full advantage, taking over the lead and eventually winning the set 21-25.

Set two proved a more even battle at the start, both teams fighting point-for-point up to 7-7, but after 10-10, Hylte dropped another gear and rallied off a string of points to earn a 5-point lead. Despite our best efforts, led by Ester de Vries' powerful attacks, we only scratched the surface and dropped to trail 0-2 in sets.

The momentum earned by daring performances from Hanna Salomäki and Mathilda Carlsson late in the second set did not go unnoticed. Combined with the hard-hitting Ester de Vries, the trio helped to lead GVK to a 25-15 victory in the third set.

Our confidence was not short-lived, and again we jumped to an early lead in the fourth, but at 11-11 H/H made three-straight service aces, followed by three-straight attacking points to give a lead from which we could not recover, dropping the final set 17-25.



Ester de Vries (GVK) - 23 points (21 kills, 2 aces) - MVP

Daniele Kovacs de Lima (HH) - 22 points (21 kills, 1 ace)

Jonna Wasserfaller (HH) - 12 points (10 kills, 2 blocks)
