VOLLEYBALL: Zamalek defeat Tala’a El-Gaish to clinch Egypt Cup

Zamalek El-Gaish Volleyball Egypt Cup


Zamalek’s team defeated Tala’a El-Gaish in the final of the 2016 Cup to clinch the trophy.

Zamalek came into the match in high spirits, after defeating arch-rivals Al Ahly in the previous round.

Their opponents, meanwhile, were still somewhat euphoric after clinching the Egyptian league title a week earlier.

El-Gaish had also been crowned as African volleyball champions, and came into the final looking to seal the treble.

True to form, the army club got off to a great start, winning the first set 25-15.

The Whites came roaring back, however, and won the next two sets with respective scores of 25-22 and 25-15.

The momentum had shifted completely by now, and Zamalek would go on to win the final set 25-19 to snatch the trophy from a distraught El-Gaish side.
