AVSC underway

Eldo receives 25 years award

The Australian Volleyball Schools’ Cup got underway yesterday with the opening ceremony at MSAC. Competition began today. Draw /results (updated)

At the opening ceremony, Volleyball Australia’s Chris Schacht made some interesting comments on the Crawford report, insisting that although volleyball was an Olympic sport, it was also a participation sport. And that the stadium full of athletes at the opening ceremony was proof of this. He promised to send a photo of the ceremony to Crawford and to the minister of sport!

A special mention too for devo’s volleyball regular David “Eldo” Eldridge, as the Heathfield coach became the first person to achieve a 25 years of participation award. Well done Eldo!

Aussies fight for 5th place

Posted by devo on October 4, 2009

asian men logo 09AsianVolleyball1On the second last day of the Asian Men’s Volleyball Championships, Australia will be fighting for a 5th place finish.

Iran will play South Korea and China will play Japan in the Championship semi-final. scores and draw ~ video of semis (8pm / 10pm AESST – note that this is betting site)

UPDATE: China vs Japan 2-3 (25-20, 25-23, 22-25, 26-28, 10-15)

UPDATE: Iran vs South Korea 3-2 (24-26, 25-20, 26-28, 25-17, 15-11) Iran are having a great championship. They defeated China for their first time ever; they are now into their first championship gold medal match. Previously they have a 3rd in 2003; a 4th in 1995.

UPDATE: Kazakhstan defeated Australia 3-2 (17-25, 25-21, 13-25, 25-22, 15-11) Australia will play for 7th position tomorrow.

Kazakhstan was hailed as final set victors against Australia in a five-set close match in the 5th to 8th semi-finals at the 15th Asian Senior Men’s Volleyball Championship at the Ninoy Aquino Stadium on Sunday.

The first set naturally saw both teams sizing up each other, neither taking a solid lead over the other. Kazakhstan relied on Svyatoslav Miklashevich at the scoring helm while setter Matthew Young distributed the ball to nearly everyone on the Australian court. Young outsmarted the Kazaks with a dink at 8-7 by the first technical timeout. The Australians then utilized their blocking game plan with 212cm-tall Thomas Edgar manning the net. The move paid off as Australia augmented its lead to 16-11. … Australia was persistent with its blocking with Andrew Grant also helping out on defence as they took the first set 25-17.

Kazakhstan tried to come off the huddle by utilizing its other offensive options. Marat Imangliyev stepped up by firing at the Australian court with back row stunners. The set came to a tight situation once again at 7-7 but Travis Passier slammed an attack down the middle, causing the Australians to take their eighth point of the second set. The Kazaks found themselves with even more options courtesy of Asset Bazarkulov who delivered crucial points. Kazakhstan took the 16-11 lead with their more fluid orchestration. Australia tried to fuel a scoring run and capitalized on their opponents’ ball handling errors but the attempt only ended on a futile note. Kazakhstan took the second set with 25-21.

Australia came back strong in the third set by reverting to their game plan of distributing the ball. They attacked from all areas of their court and took advantage of the Kazaks’ faulty floor defence. Everything seemed to work in favour of the Australians with their opponents even falling for decoys. Australia also toiled with their defence, saving the ball as much as they could. By the second technical timeout, Australia’s efforts paid off with a 16-11 lead. Australia’s second setter Shane Alexander served nearly flawlessly from the end line and zeroed in on the reception mishaps of the Kazaks. The third set ended with a huge lead for the Australians, 25-13.

The fourth set saw a reversal of fortune for the two teams. It was now Australia who was hounded by errors while the Kazaks tried to enlist more of their other players in the scoring department. Kazakhstan took an early 8-3 lead. Adam White tried to steer the Australian offense and came to fore with back-to-back kills. The Australians managed to inch closer to the Kazak lead of 16-15. The Australians tried to regenerate their defence with their tall line up but the Kazaks’ power prevailed at 25-22 to force a fifth set.

The final set proved to be a head-to-head match, each team relying on their usual gunners: MIklasevich and Imangliyev for Kazakhstan, White and Thomas for Australia. A surprise hit from Kazak captain Dmitriy Gorbatkov took the Kazaks to an 8-7 lead. Kazakhstan persisted with their defensive stance to neutralize the opposing team’s attacks. Australia relied too much on their outside hitting that Kazakhstan knew all too well to deflect. Kazakhstan took the match with a 15-11 win in the deciding set. more@avc
