First Victory For Cyprus In Women's Volleyball

NICOSIA, 3 June 2009 - The Cyprus Womenís Volleyball Team have got off to a winning start in the XIII Games of the Small States of Europe.

Nicos Ioannouís side beat Luxembourg 3-1 as they successfully launched their bid to defend the first place finish they had previously secured at the Monaco Games back in 2007.

It wasnít all plain-sailing however as the hosts got off to an edgy start with lack of concentration costing them the first set. But they got back into the swing of things in the second set and, with Nina Chuda, Ivana Milanovic and Tetyana Timokhova in impressive form, managed to peg back their opponents and claim the next three sets.

Sets: 20-25, 25-14, 25-10, 25-12

CYPRUS: Charalambous (13p), Timokhova, Elizabeth Craney-Riala, Faouta (10), Chuda (16) Michael (13), Aristeidou (libero), Milanovic 11, Pavlou.
LUXEMBOURG: Noesen (11), Lebon (7), Frisch (7), Weber (6), Emeringer (1), Bichel (7), Zorn (libero), Watry (1), Kieffer, Steffen, Gengler (1).

In the menís event, Iceland secured their second consecutive victory and are now in the driving seat for a medal. Just like in their first game against San Marino, the Icelanders fell behind in the first set and were forced to rally back to seal a 3-1 victory.

Sets: 21-25. 25-18, 25-15, 27-25

On Thursday, Iceland take on Andorra at 17:30 whilst Cyprus host Luxembourg in the late game at 20:15.
