At that moment, the team from Vinnytsia organized an impressive 9:0 run, which decided the fate of the set.
In the second set, even before its middle part, the favorite of the match organized a handicap of "+6" (11:5). At that moment, the players of "Halychanka" had problems both in reception and in serving, which did not go anywhere in the future. In the second half of the set, the players from Vinnytsia confidently controlled the game and won the second set in a row without any problems - 25:18.
"Dobrodiy" also started the third set very strongly - 5:0, 8:2. The team from Vinnytsia won the first half of the set with a difference of 8 points (13:5), after which they confidently dominated and brought the set to a well-deserved victory.
