In the 11th round of the Italian volleyball Serie A Andreoli Latina beats Yoga in Forli 3-1 and with 26 points moves closer to the salvation group.
It was an entertaining game but not beautiful. The 1st set was a gift from Forli to Latina, although Forli was receiving better. During the 2nd part the leaders were always the hosts but eventually won the guests. Finally Forli found their rhythm and thanks to Guillermo Falasca and Graydon Ainsworth they set the result to 1-2. However, it was the team from Latina that finished the match in their favour. The most efficient from Forli was Falasca (24 points), from Latina – Sasa Starovic (18).
Daniele De Pandis said: “We’re sorry because of the result, also because in recent matches we have also got points. We paid for balls we lost that in the end made the difference.”
There wasn’t a surprise in the game between the 2nd team in Serie A1, BRE Banca Lannutti Cuneo, adn the 7th team – Marmi Lanza Verona. Cuneo started without Grbic and Nikolov , Verona without Lotman. And this lack influenced on the game played by Verona, that couldn’t find a continuity in attack. Only the 1st set was balanced. From Cuneo the best scorer was Wout Wijmans with 18 points, the best performance showed Alexander Volkov who was voted an MVP of the match.
