THE National Youth experienced a third consecutive defeat in the final phase of the European U20 Championship, which is held in Italy and is now bottom of Group B after Finland’s 3-1 (25-16, 20-25, 25-16, 25-18) defeat her. The Greek team lagged behind in attack against the Scandinavians (33% vs. 53%), but could have led the match in the tie-break, since the game was “open” at 17-16 in the fourth set.

In the first set, the internationals found themselves behind early (4-1, 7-2), they got closer to 12-9, but nothing more. In the second set, many counterattacks were lost, but with the limitation of mistakes and the serves of Bakodimos, the Greek team had a stable lead (7-4, 14-8, 17-11) and comfortably reached the tie.

But that was it, since the continuation was not similar. At the start of the third set, the difference took on dimensions (6-2, 9-6, 14-6), while in the fourth, as mentioned above, Greece was in contention until 17-16, but the reception problems and the bad selections resulted in individual scores of 8-2, with Finland cruising to victory.
