Winning Start For Iceland, San Marino

NICOSIA, 2 June 2009 - Iceland and San Marino won their first games in Women’s Volleyball at the XIII Games of the Small States of Europe against Luxemburg and Liechtenstein respectively.

Iceland seems capable to go for glory in this year's Games. On Tuesday, the girls won the game against Luxemburg unexpectedly easily in straight sets, 3-0. To do so, they relied on their strong service and reception, both of which the Luxemburgians lacked. Sets: 25-20, 25-19, 25-16.

San Marino had a hard time against Liechtenstein only during the third set, winning it by 26-24. That gave the San Marinese the win, as they had also taken the first two sets by 25-17 and 25-19. Attending the game was Princess Nora of Liechtenstein with her delegation.

A moment of silence was held before the game of San Marino against Liechtenstein, in memory of San Marino’s Alessandro Casadei, who tragically died in May 2009 on a motorbike accident.

On Wednesday, Iceland plays against Liechtenstein (09:00) and Cyprus against San Marino (11:15).
