Match Report

GERMANY v CROATIA

Article

Germany finished on top of Pool B at the continental Olympic qualifier in Apeldoorn undefeated after mastering a 3-0 (25-15, 25-17, 25-23) victory over Croatia on Friday. In a one-sided first set, young Germans Hanna Orthman and Camilla Weitzel were quite efficient in exerting their power on the court and led their team to an emphatic 25-15 win.

Croatia fought back in the beginning of the second set and managed to open a 7-2 lead. After 12-7, however, Germany scored five in a row to catch up and then took control for the rest of the set. Louisa Lippmann chipped in seven points in the set towards another emphatic win – 25-17.

The two sets won were already enough to secure the top of the final standings for Germany, so coach Felix Koslowski changed almost the entire line-up for the third. Still, with 22-year-old substitute opposite Kimberley Drewniok firing nine points, the Germans had the initiative for the most part of the set, building up to a four-point lead at 19-15. Croatia did not give up and reacted with four consecutive points to level the score and prompt an exciting epilogue. After 23-23, Drewniok spiked to deliver the match point, which was then converted on an opponent error to a 25-23 close.

Four players, Germany’s Orthmann, Drewniok and Weitzel and Croatia’s Sanja Gamma, shared the top scorer honours of the match with 10 points apiece.
