Two Out Of Two For Cyprus And Andorra

NICOSIA, 4 June 2009 - Cyprus and Andorra remain the only undefeated volleyball teams in the men’s event leading many to believe that Friday’s meeting is likely to determine what will be the top three finish.

Cyprus struggled to get past a resilient Luxembourg side despite winning 3-0 and is now at the top of the standings with Andorra.

Antonis Papadopoulos' side easily took the first set 25-16 but Luxembourg took the game to their complacent hosts in the second set and came within striking distance of taking the second set with the score at 23-21. But Cyprus hit back to finally win 27-25 and held firm to win the third set 25-18 despite a late rally from the Luxembourg players.

Cyprus' top players were Nikos Kolas (13), Angelos Alexiou (10), Eracleous and Petrakidis.

Quarters: 25-16, 27-25, 25-18.

CYPRUS: Eracleous (8), Petrakidis (9), Kolas (13), Alexiou (10), Masias (1), Papachristodoulou (libero), Knezevic (7), Michael (3), Pampakos (2), Savva, Apostolou, Christodoulou.

LUXEMBOURG: Konig (4), Lux (5), Stutz (3), Schoder (5), Braas (3), Tarantini (libero), Belhaouci (1), Lentz (3), Vosahlo (4), Laevaert.

Also taking their second victory were Andorra who convincingly beat Iceland 3-0 and Marti Castealla’s men are now in the driving seat for a medal. With Marco Jardim in fine form along with Marc Altayo and Javi Borrego also putting on strong performances, the Andorrans were never really troubled by their Icelandic opponents. Andorra will now meet Cyprus on Friday.

Quarters: 25-19, 25-20, 25-17

Friday's schedule sees six games: Liechtenstein – Luxembourg (9:00) and Cyprus – San Marino (11:15) in the women’s event and San Marino – Luxembourg (18:00) and Cyprus – Andorra (20:15) in the men’s event.
