The undefeated Milonas (A’) emerged as the champion of SPEDA in Boys U18 for the second consecutive year and fifth overall in its history, who prevailed 3-0 (25-21, 25-13, 25-17) of Argyroupoli in the F4 final , with Giorgos Kouvaras as MVP for the second season as well.

The “greens” of Panagiotis Georgountzou in the indoor court of Moschatos, were very superior, dominated the block, suffocated their opponent on the serve and comfortably reached the trophy.

On the other hand, Argyroupoli fought only in the first set, while in the next two she could not withstand the pressure of Milos.

The guests were reduced to 22-18, but in the crucial last points the players of the club of N. Smyrna managed with Tsiganos, Kouvaras to take the set with 25-21 and make it 1-0.

We had a change of scenery in the second with Milos being stormy, and leaving no room for AONA. Characteristically, from 7-4 the winners jumped to 22-10, and finished the set in summary proceedings with 25-13.

We had the same picture in the third set. Milonas started with 8-4, then stepped on the gas and escaped with a double margin, 16-8, and then increased it to 21-13. The many changes of Milos’ coach and the relaxation gave the opportunity to the young children of Giorgos Galiotos to reduce the difference to 23-16. Finally, with Kouvaras, Milonas took the set with 25-17 and with 3-0 celebrated another cup after the Men’s Fencing cup and the K21 Boys’ Cup, at the beginning of March.
