Italy - Serie A1 2017/18

  • All matches of the weekend were decided in tie-break :white:


    There's no league like Italy :super:


    But most of them were rather weak. Please, Matthias: I feel embarassed by Serie A1...

    Well, Matthias coomment isn't necessary a compliment :P

    It could be understandable that now the opponents know her better and so she may have worst % than before, but I still think it's impressive how few mistakes she committed since the beginning of the season...

  • All Star game on December 23rd. Italy vs World.


    Italy
    OPP - Egonu,Sorokaite,Mingardi
    S - Malinov,Cambi,Caracuta
    OH - Marcon, C.Boseti, Loda,Ortolani
    MB - Chirichella,Bonifacio,Stufi
    L - Sirressi,Spirito


    World
    OPP -Haak,Pavan,Tomsia
    S - Carlini,Papafotiou,Hancock
    OH - Hill,Nizetich,BartschScuka
    MB - Stevanovic,Kruijf,Heryrman,
    L - Leonardi,Parrocchiale


    There`s no foreign libero in the league that`s why Leonardi and Parrocchiale were selected for team World, and there`s only 5 foreign setters, the 3 selected plus Woloz/Skorupa but leaving these 2 out makes sense as they are both playing Champions League ( If they were to get injured while playing a worthless game they would be screwed.)

  • Conegliano started with Hill-Bricio-Fabris.


    Pesaro is playing really good, fighting very good. Fabris with 6 points already and it is 12:12... And I don't like it. Conegliano looked much better as team against Novara.

  • Conegliano after all beat 3:0 Pesaro. I was expecting that maybe they can take 1 set from Conegliano but they didn't.


    After 1set Wolosz stoped to use Fabris so much and in 2nd and 3rd set She used MBs a lot same as Bricio. And it worked good. Bricio and Fabris again attacked reception with their stronge jump servers and Pesaro just could keep their heads up.


    Top scorers: Bricio 17 points, Fabris 15 points and Van Hecke 13 points.

  • I saw the match for a while. Merlo disappared the least seasons from the radar, but still she does a very good job. Carlini, Haak and Adenizia make this team consistent. Arrighetti and Bosetti are shadows of their former selves. Bethania de la Cruz is underperforming.


    Bust has got a nice team. Pity the have Diouf as opposite...
