Battle in Novara in game 1 of the semifinal championship of the Serie A volleyball championship and Saugella Monza stopped at the tie-break against Igor. After five consecutive victories in the last five matches against the Piedmontese, Monza was stopped by Lavarini’s team, which appeared in the day already in the first set prologue and able to go ahead twice, winning the first and third set.
Monza reacted to an unexceptional evening with character and nails, winning in the second set after starting at 10-1 and in the fourth driven by Van Hecke, Begic and Danesi. The fifth set, however, once again rewards the home team, which wins the partial and moves forward in the series that is giving away a place in the Scudetto Final. Race 2 is on Saturday at 8.30 pm: Monza aims to win to bring everyone to race 3.
Alessia Orro (Saugella Monza): “I’m very sorry because in the fifth set we were there, point by point, but they were good at getting some important shots, we were less cynical than usual. The Play Offs are played every two days, which is why it is not simple from a physical and mental point of view. However, we must take the field aggressively and give 100% on every ball, making sure that the result depends on us. Does the absence of Gaspari weigh? Certainly. He is important to us but Parazzoli is doing a good job, we trust him too. Let’s think about moving forward: from tomorrow we return to the gym to prepare for Race 2 ”.
