|Gislaved prepares to take on Svedala|
Final Score: Gislaved 0 - Svedala 3 (12-25, 16-25, 16-25)The focus before the away game was to stop Svedala's foreign players. The game plan went like that for Gislaveds VK.
Holly Franks were scores best with 18 points, second best was Autumn Wedan with 17 points.
"We put no pressure on them and they are both really good. It is the single biggest difference today," says head coach Dick Runesson.
GVK just took a total of 44 points in three sets. Dick Runesson's post-game analysis: "Today Svedala was too much for us to handle. They are better at all positions. There is absolutely nothing to hide the fact. But of course, volleyball is about winning their matches and we do not today."
What do you say about your game?
"This probably sounds really weird, but we fought together quite well. We kept to the game plan and we tried to find energy from each other and help each other as much as possible. Unfortunately we did not quite succeed, but we should not over analyze this effort. We will take with us what was good and build on to the next game."
And the next match is already on Saturday. Then we face Katrineholm at home.
"It's really good that we have another match so soon," says Runesson.
