Akaa-Volley played 13 official matches in Akaa Areena during the past autumn. These matches brought 13 wins! Let us hope the same trend continues in 2024.
On Saturday evening, Akaa-Volley won Karelian Hurmos 3 – 0 (25-20, 25-19, 25-22). The visitors had their own chances especially in the third set by having the lead 16-18. Anyhow, the home team shaped up in the last balls and took the remaining points 9-4. One of the key players in Akaa-Volley team was the middle blocker Petteri Tyynismaa who was taken on the field during the last balls only and made 4/+3.
Once again, Matěj Šmídl made most of the points (25/+17). But Mikko Räsänen had an efficient evening as well by 15/+12.
The coach Olli Kunnari was satisfied for the result 3 – 0 but not for the performance of his team in all sectors.
- Our reception was very good (71 %). When having this kind of reception one could wait a bit more efficient attack than we had today (48 %). There is still space for improving.
The next challenge for Akaa-Volley is waiting on next Thursday. The team is visiting in the neighboring municipality to play against Lempo-Volley. The winner will meet Savo Volley in the semifinal of the Finnish Volleyball Cup of the season. This match will be played on Friday the 2nd of February.
Akaa-Volley's Chairman Torsti Mahlanen and Head Coach Olli Kunnari waiting for interesting spring season.
