Bulgaria players celebrating the victory over Netherlands

Mexicali, Mexico, July 21, 2009- Bulgaria used their efficient wing spikers to pull off their second victory over the Formless Netherlands 3-0 (25-14, 25-20, 25-20) in the second day of the second round Pool E of the 2009 Women’s Junior World Championship held here at Auditorio del Estado Ciudad Deportiva hall in Mexicali, Mexico on Tuesday.
 Bulgaria improved their win- loss ratio to 2-0 to secure a place in the semifinal while Netherlands dropped to 0-2
 Bulgaria players were more consistent at the beginning of the match as they took the first wind of the game successfully. They were better in reception and digging and thus they were able to develop the attacks through efficient wing spiker Dobriana Rabadzhieva and Elisa Bogdanova. On the other hand Netherland team lost the coordination due to the improper reception and backline digging so the set went widely for the Bulgarian from the start till the end 25-14.
 The second set starts the same rhythm as the Bulgarian team maintained using wing spikers to attack and the centers to defend against the Netherlands attacks. Bogdanova again did a good job with the setter Tsvetelina Nikolova to lead widely 8-2 at the FTT, but Netherlands regained their rhythm for the first time in the match deploying their centers Jeanine Stoeten and Nicole Koolhaas in block and quick attacks so they d]decreased the point deficit to 18-14. The Bulgarian head coach called a timeout that regained the situation to their side winning the set 25-20.
 Bulgaria applied the same strategy in the third set of using the unique attacking through the sides of the net specially that the Netherlands blockers didn’t perform well. Grigorova, Rabadzhieva and Bogdanova worked well aall through the set and didn’t allow the Netherlands to come near all through the set till they won 25-20
