To complete a whole round without defeats, the Omag San Giovanni in Marignano is missing the last piece. The opponent of the league leaders unbeaten in the 9^ day of the Group A is the Geovillage Hermaea Olbia, among the most in the form of the Championship Series A2 Female, coming from three consecutive wins. “It will be a race in which we must maintain maximum concentration – comments in this regard, the viceallenatore of the Omag Alessandro Zanchi -. Olbia is a team not to be underestimated, is in the positive strip, and will definitely continue to do points. We expect a trip is challenging and we are determined to do well. It will be crucial to better manage the correlation wall-defense“.
In Sardinia, the air is finally full of enthusiasm, even with respect to a ranking more favourable: “there is nothing impossible – clarifies Jenny Barazza, the soul of the Hermea -. Obviously we know well their qualities: they are a team, square, tough, and in possession of individuality is very important. However, we are well and we are not limits. We will face the match without fear.“
Trip to friuli for the‘eurospin Ford Sara Pinerolothat will address the Cda Talmassons. The home team showed in the last races have perfectly adapted to the category, snatching important points to the teams level. For their part, the piedmont will aim to maintain a high count points to close in beauty the way out and start over with the right foot the second round. “Pinerolo is a team ranked high with Zago, Bertone and Grigolo protagonists – says Ettore Guidetti, coach of Talmassons -. We are good and play with teams which are strong allows us to improve. We will continue our period of growth“. “Sunday we’ll Talmassons which up until now has done a typical path of a team neo promoted – detects Michele Marchiaro, coach of the’eurospin Ford Sara -. He has struggled in the first five days, with the help of a calendar quite unfortunate, as from the sixth day, they went always to the point, first with Olbia, then with Sassuolo and finally, with Soverato. Will be a team to deal with double attention. As far as we, missing 10 games at the end of this first phase, 4 at home, 6 out-of-home, a journey complicated by considering the importance of the factor field that up to now, we have exploited in a positive way. The goal is and remains to be competitive on any field and move up the ranks especially outside the house, where even a point can make the difference because they are all points that we are behind in the second phase. We need to confirm and give continuity to what we have done until today“.
The Volley Soverato closes the group in the home leg of the Exacer Montale. The two teams are united by the fact of being unbeaten in front of their crowd. The girls of coach Napolitano, despite the points advantage in the standings, will have to face the challenge with the maximum determination and will to win to come out unbeaten in the league from the palace of Castelnuovo, where they have already fallen Martignacco, Sassuolo and Cutrofiano.
Very close in the ranking are Itas Città Fiera Martignacco and Club Italia, Crai, which will be the opposite on Sunday at Friuli. “The Club Italy – said the spiker of the house Allison Beltrame – is a team of young talent that is appearing in this championship. It will not be a simple game. In the last two races we are not able to express ourselves better, then we hunger for redemption. We have grit and determination to win points in addition to dishing out a good performance, the determinants for the rankings and for you to regain confidence in ourselves. After two days time, we will return to play in front of our fans, which I invite you to come numerous to support us. We need them”.
A sixth and the other tenth, but divided only by two points, the Green Warriors Sassuolo and Mom’s Heart Cutrofiano face each other in a delicate moment of the season. “Cutrofiano is a team not to be underestimated – explains Enrico Barbolini, coach of the neroverdi -: like us, have had some problems in the course of their journey till today. They have lost players as important as Bertone and Cogliandro for serious accidents and probably prevented at our upcoming opponents to achieve those outcomes that would be expected to be at the beginning of the season. The roster of Cutrofiano has players of very good level for this category, so Sunday will be a game to be taken lightly. From this match I expect a further step towards continuity that is about twenty days ago I was missing“.
After eight days of pursuits, Delta Informatica Trentino and LPM BAM Mondovì, paired in the top of the standings of Group B, they face to assign the primacy to the end of the first round of the Championship Series A2 is Female. Are 20 the points scored by the two teams on the eve of battle direct Sanbàpolis. “It will certainly be a spectacular match, and high-level – explains thecoach gialloblù Matteo Bertini ) – because it will face two teams playing a volleyball very offensive and spectacular. Mondovì, he says the ranking, has a rose of the first order, with a director that varies a lot in the game thanks to the many offensive solutions at its disposal. It will be important, in addition to serving well, to pay great attention to two aspects of our game, that is, the fluidity of the exchange-the ball and the concreteness of the counter-attack. The victory of Marsala has given us moral and serenity, we come to this game ranked high in excellent condition and ready to play cards at our disposal“.
“It will be a very important race, which will see us as opposed to a very strong team – in the words of Silvia Augustine, the captain of the LPM BAM –. We play this match on equal points and this gives us the serenity and the desire to do well. It is not a decisive race, because the championship is still long, but it will be important to our understanding of the level and that a team listed for you as good as Trent“.
Interestingly, always in the 9^ day can challenge even the third and the fourth power of the group, or Conad Olimpia Teodora Ravenna and Barricalla Cus Torino. The romagna are coming from four consecutive wins and are aiming to extend the streak in front of the audience of the PalaCosta. “Ravenna, we can expect a race very challenging, against a team of the most acclaimed of all, the ranking of A2, rich in talent and personality, ” explains Fulvio Bonessa, viceallenatore of the Cus -. As usual, we will prepare ourselves in the best and we will face the race to the best of our ability, trying to confirm the progress and the safety demonstrated in the last home games. It will also be a pleasure to meet Elisa (Morolli, ed.), with whom we have shared so many exciting moments in the past seasons, and to which we are all emotionally tied up“.
Relevant for ranking the match between Roan CBF H. R.

We are aware of not having played a great game. We consider the mitigating circumstances do not excuse for the performance that we have provided. Where there is essence, there is a desire for revenge, I hope that you can carry in the field, this determination even if it will not be easy in the presence of a formation such as Rome, that has good values“.
The capitoline di Stefano: Cube are from a test of great heart and courage against Ravenna, played with great determination. The same attitude is expected, even away from the PalaHoney, seen that the formation of the roman has not yet won outside of the home. One of the athletes more positive this early in the season is the central Agnes Cecconello: “our team is recovering well, we are responding to various stimuli, and especially coming out of the soul, all we are giving the maximum. We want to recover the lost points in the last days. I am happy of my last performance, but the merit is also of Martina Balboni that puts me in the best conditions of attack.”
The comparison between Future Volleyball Youth Busto Arsizio and Sigel Marsala was one of those that can be considered a crossroads for the season. Matched at odds of 6 points, the two teams will have the opportunity, with a win, to remain clinging to the fifth place, the last useful for catching access to the Pool Promotion. Cialfi and companions are united more than ever in wanting to bring back the team bustocco to victory, after the exciting match at home against Trent and the setback in Montecchio Maggiore: “it’s a game to win – summarizes Matteo Lucchini, the coach of the Future – we must bring it home by channeling positively the anger that remained from last Sunday, because of a match in which we deserved to win the points. We have, however, worked well in the week, and then I ask the girls to once again put everything they have on the field of play to continue in our growth. St. Louis will prove to still be a factor: we have to win to gain ground in the standings, for the moral, but above all we deserve wins because at this time we are playing a good volleyball.“
Also the team There is smaniosa to get points and to nurture its growth in the League: “the Bust is a team that lately has been growing, as we are, however, observes Giulia Galletti, setter of the Sigel -. We can expect a game tough and the fact of having this direct confrontation out of the house to play a point in their favor. We need to avoid that in the Future conduct the game, being more aggressive and making less errors than last exit“.
“Winning is the only goal possible, the only thing that counts”. Not in terms Franco Cutolo, sports director of the P2P Smilers Baronissi, approaching the match that the irnine be played against the Sisters, Ramonda Ipag Montecchio. The salerno occupies the last place in the standings and have ‘hurry’ back: “Chase from the beginning of the Championship – he adds – we did cope with the difficulties of the path, we propped up the roster, now it’s up to the team to pull out what on the market do not buy. I expect a P2P aggressive and combative, fell in the fight, and aware that the moment is a watershed“. More serene but equally willing to prop-up his fifth place in the formation of vicenza, which in the last round was able to win three points against Busto Arsizio, showing a Carletti – spiker-class 2000 – superlative.
