PARIS routs German sensation TV Ingersoll in CEV Cup home round
2014 CEV Volleyball Cup - Men

Paris, France, February 4, 2014. On Tuesday PARIS Volley downed Germany’s sensation TV Ingersoll BÜHL in straight sets (25-23, 25-14, and 25-22) to get the right edge in the Challenge Round of the 2014 CEV Volleyball Cup – Men waiting now for the return game coming up next week in Germany.
TV Ingersoll started out strong leading the way at the first and second technical time-out (8:6, 16:14) of the opening set anchored by their US American wing-spiker Joseph Sunder, a former student at Penn State University. However, the hosts of PARIS Volley did not lose composure and in the end claimed the first set (25-23) on an ace by Jeroen Trommel and a block by Marko Ivovic who stopped the most prolific player of TV Ingersoll in this game, opposite Marvin Prolingheuer.

The hosts of PARIS Volley were off to a flying start in the second set where they stood out in all fundamentals, showing excellent blocks and great spikes to make it 8:2 at the first technical time-out. TV Ingersoll tried to stop that negative trend with a triple substitution (setter-opposite-wing spiker) but it did not help much as PARIS Volley cruised to a comfortable 25-14 to impose their rule mainly thanks to Trommel and Ivovic. Another two players showed they were in excellent shape on Tuesday night, namely Spanish setter Guillermo Hernan and German libero Markus Steuerwald, who is a native of Bühl and was cheered on by his family and friends from the stands of the Charpy hall.

The third set was much tighter with TV Ingersoll setting the pace in the early phases (8:6); slowly but surely PARIS Volley got back control of the operations and forced the German coach into a time-out as TV Ingersoll trailed 14:17. The Germans could not find their way back into the game and youngster Antoine Brizard finished the match with a block on Sunder.

“I am not very happy with the match we played tonight” said TV Ingersoll head coach Ruben Wolochin. “The first set was very open but we ended up losing it. However, I know we can perform much better than we have done tonight and I am confident that we can win the return game next week in Germany.”

“We played a very solid game and I think it was very good that we could control our emotions especially during that close first set” commented PARIS Volley head coach Dorian Rougeyron. “We know next week we will have to take on a difficult game because they always perform strong at home. We have to win another two sets to make the semis and it won’t be that easy.”
