Stuttgart (dpa / sn) - The volleyball players at Dresdner SC started the new year with a defeat. Coach Alexander Waibl's team lost the top game at doubles winner and table leader Allianz MTV Stuttgart 1:3 (25:20, 16:25, 21:25, 17:25). Fourth in the table concludes the first half of the season with their fourth defeat.
MTV coach Tore Aleksandersen reacted and made two changes in his formation before the second half. Roosa Koskelo replaced Michelle Petter in the libero position and Simone Lee replaced Laura Künzler in the outside attack. This measure had an effect, especially since the Dresdeners now had problems accepting and gradually lost the thread of the game.
In the third and fourth sections, the DSC provided more resistance again, but the hostesses won the serve-receipt duel and also played their whole physique and experience in attack. On the other hand, the young DSC team, which fought for every ball with great morale and never gave up until the end, made a few mistakes too many. After 113 minutes, the women from Stuttgart turned the first match point into victory.
