News from the National Federations

Winterthur, Switzerland, March 27, 2021. TSV JONA Volleyball claimed on Saturday the 2021 edition of the Swiss men’s national cup sponsored by la Mobilière after completing an epic comeback from two sets down in their matchup with Volley SCHÖNENWERD (12-25, 22-25, 26-24, 25-23, 15-12).

The match, however, did not start in a very promising way for TSV JONA Volleyball, as their opponents seemed to control the game with an almost impeccable performance, resulting in 25-12 and 25-22 wins and a 2-0 lead. However, TSV JONA Volleyball were able to put up a fight and to mount a terrific comeback with eventually saw them level the score and call for a tiebreak – after a dramatic end to the fourth set where an ace by Ramon Caviezel sealed a 25-23 win. The fifth set was a truly close affair too, but JONA eventually edged ahead by a few points after the teams changed sides of the court, before completing their comeback with a 15-12 win to seal their historic triumph.

“I feel honoured to bring the cup trophy back to Jona 32 years after the club’s last appearance in such a final,” Caviezel said. Caviezel received also the award for the best player of TSV JONA Volleyball in the final match, while teammate Bojan Strugar was the top scorer. Luca Ulrich received the distinction for the best player of Volley SCHÖNENWERD in their losing effort.
