NICOSIA, 5 June 2009
- Cyprus' unbeaten run at the XIII Games of the Small
States of Europe continued on Friday and the island are
now in the driving seat to take the gold medal.
3-1 victory over San Marino meant that they have a 100%
record and need just one more victory in their final
game against Iceland on Saturday to take the gold.
is also hope for Iceland and San Marino – who take on
Luxembourg in the other game on Saturday – but they will
need to see Cyprus beaten if they are to have any hope
of leaping the hosts in first place.
In the event that Iceland do beat Cyprus and San Marino
beats underdogs Luxembourg, then the sets won in all
their games will be taken into consideration.
Friday’s game, Cyprus fell behind 25-14 to San Marino
but hit back in the remaining three sets winning 25-15,
25-19 and 25-16.
