Hot action with Yugoslavia's 3-0 victory over Greece
The Yugoslav team scored a 3-0 victory over Greece on Friday in extremely hot temperatures and in front of a passionate home crowd.
Both teams wracked up errors but when the chips were down, it was Yugoslavia that gathered its forces and made the necessary moves to snatch victory in all three sets in the Sports Hall Moraca in Podgorica. The Greek side was spirited, but were ultimately unable to recover from a string of errors.
The first set went the way of the Yugoslavs, despite two substitutions. The substitution worked well for the Greek team in the second set and they took an early lead before a series of errors and a bunch of aces by the powerful Geric made the opposition rethink their tactics.
The second set was punctuated with rally after rally, as well as a lot of errors on both sides, but the Yugoslavs pulled off several courageous moves that were enough to swing the second set their way.
Then bolstered by the 2-set advantage, the Yugoslavs went out confidently in the third. The Greek side slipped again into making mistakes, while the crowd thrilled to a string of aces by the powerful Vujevic.The match ended on a high note for the home side, who now appear to have regained the type of form that won them the Olympic gold medal in Sydney..
