Cyprus To Meet Monaco In Beach Volleyball Final

LIMASSOL, 5 June 2009 - Gold medal holders Monaco will face hosts Cyprus in what is expected to be a mouthwatering final in the Women’s Beach Volleyball at the XIII Games of the Small States of Europe.

On Friday, Magalie Muratore and Caroline Van Klaveren had to come back from behind to beat the plucky Luxembourg duo of Jeanne Schneider and Norma Zambon.

The gold medal holders fell behind in the first set 21-18 but stormed back in style in the second set 24-22 before taking the winning ticket to the final in the tie break decider with a 15-10 victory.

Monaco will now meet Cyprus in Friday afternoon’s final with the hosts aiming to secure their first ever gold medal in the women’s beach volleyball event.

In the other game, Cyprus’s Mariota Aggelopoulou and Manolina Konstantinou also had to come back from behind against Liechtenstein losing the first set 21-17 to Bettina Mahr and Petra Walser.

Despite surrendering a set for the first time in the current event, the Cypriots did not tilt and, like Monaco, came out firing in the remaining two sets winning 21-13 and 15-9.
