The victories of Narbonne and Chaumont, respectively against Poitiers and Montpellier, close Round 17.
The game is practically one-way that between Poitiers (still without one of their best players Schops, injured, and still without the new substitute Djuric) and Narbonne: the guests earn 3 points very important for the standings, and rise to 10th place with the same number of points of Tourcoing (18). Now they are practically unreachable from their pursuers Cannes and Sete, who would need a real miracle.
Zanotti was the top scorer for Narbonne with 13 points, while on the other side Kutsmus scored 14 points.
On the other match, great victory of Chaumont over Montpellier in four sets: Averill played a really perfect for the winning side match with 17 points, including 3 aces, 4 winning blocks and 77% in attack, while the Captain Geiler contributed with 14, including 3 aces and 55% in attack. For Montpellier, Patry was the top scorer of the match with 20 points.
