Zaksa save the day with nail-biting comeback over Sarmaye Bank

Maurice Torres of ZAKSA Kedzierzyn-Kozle hits over the block of Sarmaye Bank's Mojtaba Mirzanjanpour and Sayed Mousavi.
Opole, Poland, December 12, 2017 - For two sets, two-time Asian champions Sarmaye Bank silenced the 2,800-strong sellout partisan crowd at Opole Arena as they led reigning Polish champions Zaksa Kedzierzyn-Kozle 2-0, before the reigning Polish champions found the way to turn the game around and open their 2017 FIVB Volleyball Men's Club World Championship with a thrilling five-set win 3-2 (19-25, 20-25, 25-16, 31-29, 17-15).

It took a nail-biting fourth set as the Iranian side came from behind and the Poles denied them a total of four match points before capitalising on their own fourth set point to force a tie-break.

And again Zaksa had to cancel two more match points of Sarmaye Bank in the fifth to bring the game home.

Sarmaye Bank outblocked Zaksa, but the home side kept the pressure from the service line, as Puertorican Maurice Torres led the winners with 26 points.
