At the end of the suspense, the volleyball players from Cannet (Alpes-Maritimes) won the tie-break 3 sets to 2 against Mulhouse on Tuesday evening and are now one victory away from a first French championship title.

After having clearly dominated the first game of the final series in the best of five games, the Volero had more difficulty in getting rid of the Mulhousiennes.

After four extremely tight sets (29-27, 25-15, 28-30, 25-23), the Cannetanes finally pocketed the victory in the tie-break 15-13, after nearly three hours of combat.

Two finals lost in 2015 and 2017

Lorenzo Micelli's players now have three coronation balls: the first two on Alsatian soil on Saturday evening, then two days later, Monday.

If the Haut-Rhinoises won twice, at home, a decisive match 5 will be played on May 13 in the Maillan hall in Le Cannet.

Le Cannet has never won the French championship and is playing its third women's League A final after that of 2015 lost against Cannes and that of 2017 lost against Mulhouse, both disputed over a single match.
