DECOSPAN VT MENEN

  • After losing its first Champions League game ever in Trentino, Decospan Menen gets back to the court to face the reigning European champion. The two teams never met each other in the past.
  • The home court in Roeselare not really is the home court of Decospan Menen. The Tomabel hall is located at approximately 30 kilometres of the Vauban gym, where Menen plays in national competition. Moving to Roeselare for important games is not new to Menen, since last year’s championship finals were all played in Roeselare (against Knack Roeselare).
  • Last Saturday, Decospan Menen took its first competition win of the season against Tectum Achel (0-3). Menen is now in position 8 out of 9 teams.
  • Familiar names in Kedzierzyn are Adrian STASZEWSKI (5 seasons) and Twan WILTENBURG (2 seasons), who both used to play for Lindemans Aalst. Setter Seppe VAN HOYWEGHEN played with both of them. Head coach Frank DEPESTELE and Adrian STASZEWSKI were teammates from 2015 until 2018.
  • After this first home game, Decospan Menen will play two more away games in 2022 (November 30 against Karlovarsko, December 14 against Kedzierzyn). So Decospan Menen has to travel for three of the first four games in its Champions League debut.
Frank DEPESTELE (Decospan Menen Head Coach): “Despite the heavy loss in our first game, we are looking forward to our first home game. Obviously, Wednesday’s opponent is as strong as Trentino, so winning at least one set against Kedzierzyn would be fantastic. I am sure our first competition win will give us the necessary confidence to start this game on a better level than in Italy. Hopefully, we can treat our audience to beautiful volleyball.”

Grupa Azoty KĘDZIERZYN-KOŹLE with a second win

Article

Kedzierzyn started as the better team in the first set, whereas Decospan Menen started getting their rhythm only in the second half of the first set. However, the strong Polish team had no major problems to emerge victorious. 

Supported by the home crowd, Decospan started better in the next set, and eventually took the lead after 7-7 to 9-7 and 12-9. A time-out by coach and Adrian Staszewski coming on the pitch turned the tables (15-17 after an ace). Decospan saved two set points, but finally lost the second set at 22-25.

It was a close call in the third set as well. After 13-13, the experience of the European champions made the difference, so Kedzierzyn took their second win in this season’s Champions League (21-25).

Captain Aleksander Sliwka was crowned MVP with 24 points (21 attacks, 1 blocks, 2 aces).

Even though that Decospan Menen played in the competition hall of Knack Roeselare, the crowd managed to create a great atmosphere.

"We did what was necessary. We knew Menen would maybe play the best game of their season. So we put maximum effort on every point. In the second set, Menen started to defend many balls, but we remained patient and kept controlling their outside hitters. A 3-0 win away is always great, and we are very happy with this result."

Tuomas Sammuelvo
Head Coach of Grupa Azoty KĘDZIERZYN-KOŹLE

"It was great to play this 'gala match' in a nice atmosphere with a fantastic audience. Maybe we should have won the second set and afterwards you never know. But overall, we are satisfied with the team performance. We played against the two big favourites now, and we are looking forward to the third game in Karlovarsko. Hopefully, we can take our first win there and stay in the running for the third place and CEV Cup."
