In the last series of matches, IBB Polonia London came up against the team of Solent Volleyball Club. The team coached by Piotr Graban, played at their home venue and defeated the visitors 3:0 (25:21, 25:22, 25:16). Once again they added another crucial three points to their league total without losing a single set.
– I think the players of Solent gave one of the best performances of their season today and in doing so caused us a few problems. They defended and passed well, which allowed them to use their middles well who became quite effective. – commented Piotr Graban – The game showed the effects of our two weeks of hard work. We focused on technique and eliminating unforced errors. We developed out tactical work over the last few weeks which could have caused a number of errors during the match. I’m really pleased with my boys, because through working so well together, we achieved what we decided to achieve before the game began.
– We are delighted with a three points gain. – said captain of IBB Polonia London, Marius Ciortea – The opponents, despite playing really well, were not able to breach our defences. We were very focused and concentrated on a number of pre-match plans. Our team did quite well. We made fewer errors and we finished the sets with a safe margin of points.
Of course, the fans played their part at the home venue. They arrived before the game and made a huge noise supporting the players.
– I’m so pleased with the way our fans support us. We can always count on their presence in the sports hall. Thanks for the support and we invite you to the next match. – said Graban.
– The support of the fans really motivates us. We play better when we know that they are behind us and cheering us on. We hope that at each coming game, their numbers increase! – added Ciortea.
