Whether in the opening stages of the first batch of our players are too underestimated the possibilities of the opponents, whether their actions affected their nervousness excessive, but the game and their first clearly flagged. And, above all, this affected the reception, when after a series of not such already and intricate innings of diagonality Marmen Vitaly expense rose to 7:0 in favor of the Israelites. Had the coach of the national team of Ukraine Garey Egiazarova to take a minute break to make his players the appropriate scolding. And this “infusion” is gradually beginning to bear fruit. And before the second technical time-out middle blocker Irina Trushkina, for the first time in the set to even the score (15:15), after which doigralsya Olesya Ryhlyuk ACE brought our team forward to 16:15.

However, once the Ukrainians to calm down and commit three consecutive errors as Israeli woman has created a new three-point gap to 19:16. These circumstances have forced Egiazarov to resort to yet another timeout, which again came in very handy. After another nail, hammered Ryhlyuk in the half court opponents was restored parity – 19:19, which lasted until 22:22. Then through a clear action on the block and in attack, our girls took some shots three decisive points, and the last one was chalked up to extreme Anna Stepanyuk.

A similar pattern was observed in the beginning of the second set when, playing without retired before the end of the match their leader attacks Rychlak (it was replaced by Karina Denisova, well-known by maiden name Yurchenko), our volleyball team once again allowed himself to excessive relaxation. As a result – “burn” 2:6, 4:8, 4:10.. Instead of the team captain Hopes Kodaly for which this match was clearly not of the best, in the position of doigralsya came Tatiana Kozlova.

Later binder Elena, Novgorodchina replaced her colleague role Alexander Peretyatko. These upheavals began to affect the accounts after 10:14. Assume the lead of the chase was Central locking Svetlana Dorsman, whose well-aimed kick sent for filing by Kozlov which made it difficult for the Israeli women receive and this has led to three successful “shots” Stepanyuk with the additive from Denisova. Again, for the first time in the party leading to the second technical break the score (16:14), our team then, increasing the power of their attacks have created before entering into the endgame pyatiochkovy touched (21:16) and kept it until the end of the exercise.

And in the third period of the match Egiazarov launched on a platform of “a fresh impetus” in the form strikers in the center of the grid Inna Molodtsova and diagonal Anastasia Seamy side. Although traditionally our team conceded first, this time, however, minimal (2:3), however, catching courage, Ukrainian women took the initiative. The first “nutrient” has already led 8:5, the second is 16:8, then the question about winning this party and win the match lost its relevance.

Especially pronounced was the superiority the national team of Ukraine in attack, where its efficiency compared to command Israel turned in the percentage of 49:30. Chernukha reached performance 67% (4 points out of 6 strikes), Rychlik and Denisova – 64% (both – 7 of 11), Molodtsova – 50% (2 of 4), Stepanyuk – 46% (11 of 24) and Trushkin – 43% (3 of 7). The opponent here was the best indicator Vitaly – only 38% (8 of 21). And submission on the part of aces (three in a row Dorsman and two – Rychlak) our advantage solid – 9:4, a Little lost only for the block in the last item of which also distinguished three “cehennemi” Dorsman.

– Holland- Denmark – 3:0 (25:12, 25:13, 25:9), 64 minutes. Azerbaijan – Norway – 3:0 (25:15, 25:10, 25:6), 60 minutes.

Our volleyball fans, of course, hoped that the women’s team, unlike men, will break on your second in the history of world finals. But after the “dry” parties the defeat of the team of Azerbaijan, the chances of that have become very elusive. And the blame for this fiasco not only and not so much the wards of coach Gary Eliasova, which was not demonstrated in this match their true potential, how much, obviously, their rivals. And, above all, their trio of attacking a corner, which ironically belongs to the cohort of pupils… the Ukrainian volleyball.

This applies to Polina Rahimova (nee – Petrashko), Natalia Mammadova (Tale) and Elizabeth Samedova (Ruban). Still, because of the 75 points scored by the hosts winning in three sets, the lion’s share falls to 43 is ex-our trio. The first of them took some shots just in attack 16, the second 10 and third, having played in only one of the party – 4. Plus powerful and aimed serving Mammadovas turned five aces, Rahimova – three. And how many times they have their catapults incredibly difficult for our volleyball and you name it. Besides, Natalia has put three successful block and Elizabeth – two, which is more than all the players combined team of Ukraine.

And indeed mistress of the site clearly outplayed our girls and scrap, and in receiving. So, in terms of efficiency in attack they have the advantage of 49%:38% in lock – 11 “celeni” against 4, And at the reception, although the best individual performance in this component was our Libero Alina Stepanchuk (37%) and captain the team Hopes Kodaly (33%), were the best rivals. Not to mention a solid backlog of our team from Azerbaijan in the number of committed their own mistakes. And the leader of the Ukrainian team star Olesya Ryhlyuk in the attack worked only on 33% (the target accounted for 7 of the 21 strikes). At the same time Rahimova – 60% (16 of 23) and Mammadova – 42% (10 of 24), Samadova – 44% (4 of 9).

In the starting of the party opened by Rahimov. His Ukrainian equalized – 3:3. After that on submission of Mamedovoy first it stated ACE the hosts went ahead – 6:3. A little later in the execution of the initial shock Rahimova binder Kristina yaqubova finished the ball to the floor and Ukrainka was already lost – 5:12. Anna Stepanyuk and Rychlak reduce the gap to three points – 12:15. Upon entering the endgame was 17:21. But feeding a binder Aleksandra Peretyatko out three consecutive unsuccessful attack Rychlak (apparently left a huge load in the season, speaking for Swiss Volero) left the number “17” under the name the national team of Ukraine frozen.

After ACE Kodaly in the opening stages of the second set lead 3:1. A couple of successful attacks Stepanyuk – 8:5. To account 15:14 (it was set Rychlak) in their favor our team then led the way, her opponent was caught. And there are three consecutive successful attack Mammadovas plus bug Svetlana Dorsman lead to the fact that already ahead of the mistress – 19:15. Then for the Ukraine national team again “frozen” was the number “17”. And the final point in the party has delivered another ACE Mammadova.

Egiazarov the third set is half updated the “basis”, releasing on a platform instead of Rychlak, Kodaly and Dorman respectively Denisov, Kozlov and Molodtsova. To account 18:18 the game was played with varying degrees of success. And before that, for the first time in the meeting going abroad 17 points blow Stepaniuc, was in front of Ukrainka. But then mistress gradually began to break away. Our girls are “cling” for the chance of a last hope, but cannon hits on the flight Rahimova, Mammadova and the curtain re-Rahimova – irrevocably predetermined depressing for the Ukrainian team the outcome of the match.
