Brno, Czech Republic, June 23, 2017 – With Bartosz Kwolek
spearheading the team’s offensive line, Poland
made a flying start at the FIVB Volleyball Men’s U21 World Championship handing Morocco
a 3-0 (25-9, 25-15, 25-15) shutout in the first Pool A match in Brno.
Kwolek was the best scorer of this game, contributing 14 points, including three aces in the third set, to Poland’s victory. Norbert Huber
was the main block master of the winning team scoring four of his squad’s 10 kill blocks. Soufiane El Gharrouti
was Morocco’s top scorer in this match with five points.
The first set was completely one-sided, with Poland outblocking and outspiking Morocco on the way to a landslide 25-9. The Africans stepped up their attacking efforts in the second set, but Poland’s Bartosz Kwolek was at 100% in offence and led his teammates to a 25-15 close. Scoring three times from the serving line, Kwolek gave Poland’s coach Sebastian Pawlik
the comfort to make some changes to his line-up as the third set unfolded. This, however, did not change the balance on the court and Szymon Jakubiszak
’s block-out spike shaped up another 25-15 to end the match.
