The Berlin volleys have won their first title of the new season. In the volleyball Supercup game, the German champions defeated cup winners United Volleys Frankfurt on Saturday in Schwerin 3-0 (25:18, 25:19, 25:20) and thus secured the trophy for the third time in a row.
Set player Sergej Grankin ended the game with the second match point. Last year, the Berliners had already forced the Hessians to win 3-0 in a duel for the Supercup.
When the new signing served, Nehemiah Mote pulled the BR Volleys to three points (12: 9) for the first time in the game. With three single blocks in a row from the American Jeffrey Jendryk, the team increased their lead to 17:11 a little later. Outside attacker Ruben Schott used the first set ball to lead the set 1-0.
Even without the injured Anton Brehme in the middle block and Samuel Tuia in the outside attack, the Berliners remained clearly determining the game.
The Frankfurters, who had to get by without Karli Allik, who had come from the Netzhoppers KW-Bestensee and had a bad knee injuries, fought bravely. But they could not withstand the pressure that Cody Kessel and Benjamin Patch created with their attacks.
Patch was the most successful attacker against the winner with 18 points, attack from the booming cauldron (13 points). The new BR Volleys Libero Santiago Danani played outstandingly.
