Þróttur volleyball women’s team met with HK in the second game of play off at crowded KHÍ home gym of Þróttur yesterday. Þróttur beat HK 3:0.


Everything looked different in the end of January when Þróttur lost in Digranes 2:3. HK´s  team approved their second position in Icelandic volleyball division. Despite of the march’s win over HK 3:1 and two wins over Fylkir, Þróttur finished on third place in the division. But these wins and exciting game against current Icelandic women volleyball leader Þróttur Neskaupstaður in the Cup semi-finals made Þróttur girls more self-confident on the court.


In spite of the yesterday result 3:0, Þróttur was not all the time better team on the court. In the second set HK was winning 5-15, but Þróttur didn’t resigned the seals. A great will for win of Þróttur brought about HK to lose the set in the end 25-22, with the same score as in the third set. After Saturday win 1:3 in Digranes and yesterday win 3:0, Þróttur women team had qualified for finals.


The first match of play off finals is on programme in Neskaupstaður on Saturday at 14.00, the second, in KHÍ (Reykjavík) on Monday at 19.30. In the case of tie, the third match will be held in Neskaupstaður on Wednesday.


Þróttur volleyball teams are in good run now. Men’s team can qualify for finals, too, in the case of win over KA tonight.
