Les Seychelles viennent à bout des Mauriciennes en éliminatoires du Mondial


Les Seychelloises participeront au dernier tour de qualification pour le Mondial

Vacoas, Île Maurice, le 8 octobre 2013 – Dimanche, la sélection féminine des Seychelles a dû batailler pendant plus de deux heures au gymnase Pandit Sahadeo de Vacos pour arracher une victoire en cinq sets contre l'Île Maurice, dans les qualifications africaines pour le Championnat du monde FIVB de volleyball 2014.

Les Seychelloises font aussi bien que leurs homologues masculins – également tombeurs des hôtes au tie-break – grâce à cette victoire 3-2 (25-19, 29-31, 19-25, 25-22, 15-11).

Les visiteuses remportaient le premier set, mais les locales réagissaient en remportant les deux manches suivantes avant que les Seychelles n'empochent le quatrième set puis le jeu décisif au terme d'un match compliqué.

Suite à cette victoire dans la zone 7, les Seychelloises participeront au dernier tour de qualification pour le Mondial, en janvier 2014.
