Lindesberg vs RIG 3-0 (25-8, 25-17, 25-11)

This was a kind of special match, since almost all of the year 3s were playing. For the first time this season, Maria Gottlander got to see some court time on the Elite team. She did a good job in receive and defence, digging a hard drive from Martina Konecna at one point.

The middles were incorporated nicely as well, the setters connecting with them through out the match. Cornelia Rosenqvist took points in attack and blocking while Linda Andersson tried different attacks to keep Linde on their toes contributing an ace and a block. Agnes Elm kept an aggressive midset through out, which ultimately gained her player of the match. Sofia Stiernström also contributed a few block out points, which were done at important moments.

Unfortunately for RIG Elite, a veteran returned to the team after half a season coaching and teaching. Margie Giordano made her come back Saturday night, shocking the league and us with her appearence on court. Instead of having two big outside hitters, they now garner three, all with plenty of experience and skill. Linde Volley also came off of a big 3-1 win from Grand Prix against Örebro Volley. It was obvious they had not come down from the adrenaline high of that particular match.

Volleyball wise, what RIG Elite lacked was serve receive and execution. With a percentage of 34% positive and 23% perfect, it is tough to get any sort of momentum. There were of course good things that happened, but a very limited amount. Lindesberg’s speed in their game flustered and confused RIG and was the ultimate decider of the match.

This next week will be a lot of focus on getting the girls back in the volleyball mindset. We will be working heavily on serve receive in all age groups. New week, new opportunities, new development! Nu kör vi!
