An enthusiastic home crowd left Falkhallen exhausted but overjoyed from witnessing a dramatic 5 set victory over Linköping on wednesday. LVC was 2 points away from having their long awaited guldläge but instead the series has been evened and is more open than ever. FVBK travels up to Östgötland on saturday to prepare for the next battle over this year’s most prestigious title.
The journey through the playoffs (or a season for that matter) is never the straight path you envision beforehand. LVC had not lost one single match during the season but was forced to use all their resources to get past Tierp in a 5 match semifinal series. Of course they had hopes of winning in Falkenberg on wednesday to be able to bring home the gold in front of their home crowd on Easter day. Instead both teams have a best of 3 series to physically and mentally prepare for.
FVBK had not had one major injury all season long. Jonathan Karlsson, who left the team in January to start med school in Lund, happened to have Påsklov last week so was home from his studies. “Join us, JK! We’d love your support, and if if If IF something crazy were to happen we just might need you.” Simon Bitsch goes down early in the 1st set with a badly sprained ankle, JK hops in, does what he does as if he’d never been gone, the TEAM steps up, and FVBK fights home a victory that changed the course of this series.
Now both teams are scrambling to take control of this SM-Finals. There are tired minds (or what do you say, Struggs?) and tired legs out there, but everyone is digging deep during the last stages of this SM-journey. Personally, I believe there is plenty of volleyball and drama to come before this year’s champion is decided. Get ready, volleyball fans, this is gonna be a good one!
