The result delivery the three important points for the standings, sees the gialloblù take in the sights of Perugia, which precedes a point but has played one game more, just on the eve of the challenge of home with the same Sir Safety Conad (Sunday at BLM Group Arena).
Confirming the recent tradition in favour and against the formation of lazio (always defeat in the last eleven comparisons), also in this case, the team of Lorenzetti was able to get the better of even without being able to rely on one of his players in better shape, Aaron Russell, stayed in a hotel in America struggling with flu-like symptoms. The full success arrived too because his natural replacement, Klemen Cebulj, it is expressed at a very high level making 22 points with 71% in attack, a wall and a ace.
His contribution was especially crucial in the victories in the comeback of the first (from 21-24 to 28-26) and the second set (from 3-8 to 25-18) and in the extension of the decisive fourth period. With him, is also excellent, and the service provided by the Carriers (20 balls winning with 63% to the network, a wall and beats the point), well-backed as well by a Lisinac unstoppable in the first half and made a decisive contribution to the service and a Kovacevic (14) in recovery.
The Top Volleyball gives in at the end of a race duration 115 minutes with more than some regret for a first set that seemed to be close to the advantage of Patry (27 points) and his companions. In the end, the statistics say that Giannelli and friends have prevailed in almost all of the basics: slightly higher than the attack of Trento (59% versus 54%), as well as receiving (55% vs. 47%), while the Top Volley was stinging from the line of nine metres (seven aces against four, and with less errors in the service).
The chronicle of the match. In starting six of the Itas Trentino Lorenzetti rioffre space Cebulj, which acts diagonally Kovacevic; shift of rest for Russell, stayed in a hotel in America because of a flu virus. Unchanged, the other five holders: Giannelli in direction, Vectors opposite, Lisinac and Candellaro at the centre, Grebennikov free. The Top Volleyball replication with Thin dribble, Patry opposite, Van Garderen and Palacios-band, Red and Szwarc central, Cavaccini free. The beginning of the match is compelling in the phase of break point and the ball goes high, so that the guests escape up 5-3 and then 9-7 thanks to a Kovacevic was very effective. To mend the tear, think of a wall of Szwarc on Candellaro and a ace Van Garderen (10-10); Trent did not falter and with Cebulj and Carriers to build a new advantage (16-12).
still has the strength with the former turn-of-the Dutch and Palacios (ace) back under (17-17), and then to put the arrow through another batting point Thin and a wall of Szwarc (17-20). It seems the break that decides the first set, because the pontine they are good to keep the advantage until 21-24. With Giannelli service to Trent cancel, however, all the advantage local (24-24), then reject to the sender, the other two balls set with Kovacevic and closes the account with the Vectors (28-26), that takes advantage of a good turn in the service of an imperious Lisinac.
The second set began with some difficulties for the Itas Trentino, who suffers in the receiving phase, and allows the Top Volleyball to escape immediately on the 1-3 and 2-6 with the ace of Palacios. “We do not disuniscono and with Kovacevic date back to china before on 8-10, and then on the 11th and the 13th after which the Latin was carried out 9-13. The time out of Tubertini not stop the good series of thirty, who, with Cebulj is the equal right to share thirteen, and then puts the arrow (15-13, and 18-15). The slovenian is ispiratissimo and contributes significantly to the sound of attacks to spread guests (22-17), who then with a couple of errors in lazio are flying fast towards the 2-0 (25-18).
The impact on the third part is again negative for the Itas Trentino, who has rebuilt the Latin; on the 2-5 Lorenzetti breaks the game, but in this case, the reaction difficult to reach. On the contrary, with the passage of time, the Top Volleyball takes more and more speed (6-9, 8-12, 9-16) thanks to Patry and Van Garderen. The technical marchigiano alternates several actual, but can’t find a reactions. Latin is exalted in all the fundamentals and re-opens the match by winning the period to 19-25.
The Itas Trentino tries to redeem himself in the fourth partial, finding the vitality in the phase of break point (8-5, 10-8, 14-11). With Cebulj is now Kovacevic to do the big voice in the counter-attack; Trent flies on 19-14, but the Latin, follows below with the usual Patry (19-17). Lorenzetti called time out and his team again (23-19), suffering until the end. In the end the decisive spurt is Lisinac (25-22).
“It was a game that we wanted and we had to win; we have succeeded and we have to be happy even if we know that in this period we do not always manage to express ourselves on a good level, ” said the coach of Itas Trentino Angelo Lorenzetti at the end of the match . The guys were great in the win win the first set and find the right key to win then the second partial. We have been able to remain united even after losing the third set, in which we had the ideas a little clouded, living together good, however, the next partial, which has allowed us to bring home the three points.”
“We approached the game well after the game of Padua, we started very well in the first set, but we were not able to realize, after the ball evaluated, perhaps evil, they are driven of the mechanisms that we have brought in two sets, ” explains Lorenzo Tubertini, the coach of the Top Volleyball – our dna is this, we are able to stay engaged, we managed to win a set. Today the batting was good and in the process break we were able to construct several occasions, pity because we could have a hungry more in the pocket”.
