Saturday afternoon, visiting elitserien rival Lindesberg handed out defeat 0-3 by scores of 12-25, 19-25, and 22-25. 

Despite injuries forcing a few line-up changes, we battled hard, as Mathilda Carlsson and Ebba Ekblad lead the way offensively with 7 kills each. Our focus on tough serves gave us a chance to defend, but Lindesberg's smart attackers mixed in placement shots with powerful swings to keep us guessing. Middle blocker Lisa Tannerfalk had her hand on 2 blocks, adding to our team's total 5 blocks. The day's match also saw the promising comeback of Lina Johansson who earned the team's only service ace.

MVP - Lindesberg, Terese Granlund

MVP - Gislaved, Meghan Sherman

 


 

Entering Sunday's Öresundliga match against Denmark's Holte IK, we focused on using this as a chance to train against a fast-tempo offense while developing some of our younger players. Holte took a commanding victory in the opening set, 10-25. After increasing our service pressure and mixing up our offense in the second set, we were unable to continue through to the end, falling 20-25. Out of the break, it was all Holte again, finishing the match off with a final set score of 10-25.

Sofie Bäck made some incredible defensive saves in the libero position, and Elin Andersson worked hard to spread the offense and give our attackers a chance against Holte's big blockers. Mathilda Carlsson again paved the way for our hitters, knocking down 8 kills, with Ebba Ekblad and Ida Lindbäck adding 4 each.

Despite the loss, we have seen much improvement in individual players that will carry through into the playoffs this March.

MVP - Holte, Marie Bonnesen

MVP - Gislaved, Mathilda Carlsson
