OrPo beaten in finals opener

VOLLEYBALLER Eliza Karley Hynes and her OrPo team-mates have their work cut out for them after dropping the first match of the Finnish women's league finals series.

OrPo served it right up to LP Viesti, pushing the reigning champions to five sets before going down 25-23, 14-25, 30-28, 25-21, 4-15 on Wednesday night.

But all is not lost for Hynes, the Maiden Gully athlete playing her first professional season at the club.

The championship final is a best-of-seven series and OrPo is confident of turning the tables.

They play LP Viesti again this Friday and Saturday at home in Orivesi, about 200km north of Helsinki.
