Three-peat for PAOK! It was do or die in Piraeus for Olympiacos and PAOK in the fifth and final game of the Greek Volley League Finals with the Dikefalos tou Vora coming out on top to 1-3 set to celebrate their 3rd straight League title.
PAOK started the game like champions and held a comfortable 3-4 point lead in the first set, which they would go on to win 22-25. However, Olympiacos improved their display in the second set to bring the match level 1-1 by winning the set 25-21.
PAOK seemed untroubled after coming up short in the second set and bounced back to win the third set. The teams were level at 19-19 then 22-2 before Dante scored two points for the visitors and Shafranovich’s point gave PAOK the 22-25 set win and 1-2 match lead.
In the fourth set, Olympiacos collapsed. PAOK dominated play and cruised to a 14-25 set win, giving them the 1-3 match victory and this year’s Greek Volley League title.
Unfortunately, PAOK’s victory (and the match) was marred by the home fans as they threw objects at the PAOK players while they celebrated their win. The visitors rushed into the locker rooms for their protections where the celebrations continued as PAOK claimed their third straight league title and continued their dominance in the Greek Volley League.
