With today’s victory being the ninth time in the Turkish Cup, Eczacıbaşı VitrA also holds the title as the team which has won the most championships.

Eczacıbaşı VitrA showed a well-balanced team performance in the first set. Captain Jordan Larson carried the team greatly in attack and defense yet the first set finished in favor of Fenerbahçe (23-25).

Responding Fenerbahçe well with great digs, Eczacıbaşı VitrA led the game 25-17 in the second set.

With Tijana Boskovic and Yeon Koung Kim, who was substituted at the end of the second set,  powering the team, Eczacıbaşı VitrA resisted well against Fenerbahçe attacks and serves.

Starting fourth set with a 3-0 streak, the team kept control over the game. Tijana’s unstoppable attacks were remarkable in the final set.
