Can Ventura PALMA win Spanish Cup in their maiden appearance
News from the National Federations

Leganes, Spain, February 28, 2017. Can Ventura PALMA are the new Spanish Cup champions. The team from the Balearic islands defeated CV TERUEL 3-2 (19-25, 25-22, 25-19, 19-25, 22-20) in an extraordinary and vibrant final, which was played in front of 4,000 spectators filling up the Pabellon Europa sports hall in Leganes. The team coached by former player Marcos Dreyer celebrated their first title in the competition at the end of a roller coaster of a game.

CV TERUEL imposed their rule in the first period, so to dominate the set from beginning to end (25-19). After this first set controlled by the four-time Cup winners, Can Ventura PALMA reacted and took the second set, thanks to Andres Villena and Fran Ruiz's attacking efficiency (25-22). The newcomers to the Spanish top division maintained control of the game in the following set, with middle blocker Jorge Fernandez and spiker Guilherme Hage leading the way.    



As it looked like Can Ventura PALMA were heading towards victory, CV TERUEL produced a remarkable comeback. The attacks by Jaroslaw Lech and Balsa Radunovic helped the seven-time Cup finalists force the tiebreaker.  

The last set was truly spectacular, close and exciting until the end. The period reached its decisive phase with a draw prevailing in the scoreboard (10-10). Can Ventura PALMA had no less than seven match balls, but CV TERUEL managed to cancel them all; the men in orange shirts had themselves one opportunity to finish the clash in their favour, but the Balearic side stayed alive. In a thrilling ending, setter Victor Viciana, who eventually received the award for the MVP of the tournament, took his side by the hand and produced two favourable actions for their spikers, so Can Ventura PALMA could seal their victory at 22-20.   

Can Ventura PALMA claimed their first Cup crown in their debut in the tournament, thus breaking a run of eight consecutive Cup victories by the leading forces of Spanish Volleyball, Unicaja ALMERIA and CV TERUEL.
