Macedonia beats Albania in volleyball tournament


The Macedonian volleyball team beat Albania in five sets on Thursday evening, at the Boris Trajkovski sports hall in Skopje. Albania had the lead in sets twice, winning the first and the third set. The Macedonian team was able to even the game, and eventually win the fifth set 15:10.

Captain Nikola Gjorgjiev was the best player in the Macedonian team, and Jovica Simovski had a successful come-back to the team.

This all but guarantees that Macedonia will advance from Group A. Macedonia won all three games in the first tournament in Varna, against Albania, Bulgaria and Denmark. Best two teams from Group A go forward to meet with the best two teams from Group B.
