Cyprus Closes In On Target

LIMASSOL, 3 June 2009 - Cyprus became the first team to qualify to the Women's Beach Volleyball semifinals at the XIII Games of the Small States of Europe. Manolina Constantinou and Mariota Aggelopoulou defeated Luxemburg's Schneider and Zambon 2-0 (21-14, 21-10) in 40 minutes, in what was their third win in three games.

The last win was the most important of all, as Luxemburg was considered one of the favorites, having won its two previous games. Now, with only two games left (one against Liechtenstein on Wednesday afternoon), the girls from Cyprus need just one more victory to ensure first place in their group, which will allow them to be in strong position for a medal, facing the team that will end up fourth.

Day 2 of the Games was also important for the girls from Liechtenstein, as they celebrated their first win, against Andorra by 2-0 in 36 minutes.

The other three competitors of the semifinals are yet to be decided. Even Iceland and Andorra, who both have lost their first two games, can still hope, as they each have three more games to play.
