The men's national ice hockey team have taken a convincing lead in the fourth level of the World Championships in Serbia, winning the first three games.
Estonia beat Iceland 4-1 in the first game last Wednesday, then went one better against Australia the next day, winning 5-1. Estonia then beat host Serbia 5-2 on Saturday.
Games against Israel (today) and Belgium (Tuesday) still await, but Estonia has nine points in the table, four more than second place Iceland and Belgium, meaning they will have to win either game to top the group and qualify for the third tier, division I B, where Estonia was relegated from last year after losing all games and returning to Tallinn drunk.
Bigbank Tartu has won the Estonian volleyball championships, beating Tallinn Selver for the fourth time in the final on Sunday.
Both teams had won at home before Tartu picked up a win in Tallinn and then beat their rivals in Tartu at the fifth game.
Tallinn won the league last year, against Pärnu VK.
