Head coach of St. Petersburg women’s volleyball team Alexander Kashin summed up the game of the 2nd round of the Spartakiad of the strongest against Moscow (1:3).
The meeting took place in Kaliningrad. For the Petersburgers, the defeat was already the second in two matches.
– Today we and Moscow played without our main volleyball players. The actions of the centrals decided a lot, but they acted an order of magnitude stronger with the opponents. Gives attack sharpness and good blocking. Unfortunately, in this element we could not oppose anything to the Muscovites. Our young players fought well. Some worked, some didn’t. Dasha Shustova, for example, hasn’t trained with us for a single day. She came from the youth team and showed herself well. We will continue to give young girls the opportunity to try their hand. Coaching staff need to understand what can be expected of new players, said Kashin, quoted by Spartakiad official website .
On August 19, the team from St. Petersburg will meet the team from the Kaliningrad region.
