Zenit Kazan's trio Mikhailov (19 points), Anderson (16 points) and Ngapeth (15 points) created the first win in the semifinal series against Fakel Noviy Urengoy. The away side was close to tie the score after performing well in the second set, however,  they didn't manage to do it, letting Zenit double the lead in sets. 

In the third, Fakel couldn't do anything to stop the reigning champions and they let them win the first game.

Kuzbass Kemerevo have also scored a 3-0 win over Zenit ST. Petersburg. Even though it was a 3-0 win, the home side had many difficulties, especially in the second and the third set.

Yaroslav Podlesnikh was the top scorer in Kuzbass with 16, while Georg Grozer had 17 points.

TUR W: Guidetti addresses managers and families of EuroVolley U16 winners with request

I am not sure why coach Guidetti would say that. That's their livelihood they are playing at. National pride only lasts a short time then it's back to work playing for a living. Vakifbank is a perfect example of paying big $$ for top players. Do they play for pride? Get real. Motivation is always money. Reply

RUS W: Despite renewing with Dinamo Moscow, Ognjenović will join VakıfBank

Wow! Ognjenović had some heated clashes with the Vakifbank coach on court while she was playing for EcZ. I have seen in one video that she was screaming at him. Ognjenović is fiery and the captain of the National Serbia team and is considered one of the best setters (and smart) in the world. I like this move. The current setter for Vakifbank makes bad decisions(and poor sets) at bad times that caused them. Reply
