The second leg of the season begins with the seventh 3-0 of the seasonArrè cheese turi who will gain the upper hand over the fearsome formation of Bontempi Begin Hotel Ancona from trainers Della Lung relegated in Turi with a six-goal streak.
In the Palazzetto in Via Cisterna the men of Castellaneta show their maturity and compactness, cynical and alert, despite the bland rhythms by returning after a two-week break, to assert their potential against blocking (8 to 5) and especially in attack (50% efficiency) where it is common Matheus (Game’s top scorer), in The Field And Roger They leave Larizza and his companions no way out.
The twelfth success of the season brings the Turese team to 34 points and consolidates second place, four lengths behind the pair Potenza Picena-Osimo, who share third place.
The Arrè Formaggi presents itself with the Manginelli-Matheus diagonal, Primavera and Incampo on the sides, Taccone and Ruggiero in the middle, Dammacco libero; while coach Della Lunga sets up his team with Larizza dribbling and Santini at the opposite end, Marconi and Tomasseti on the rink, Durazzi and Rosa as the center pair and Giombini as the libero.
The locals try to extend immediately: Manginelli’s ace (3-2) is followed by Tomassetti’s out attack and Incampo’s narrow diagonal, 5-2. Ancona is not there and finds the draw (6-6) taking advantage of some mistakes made by the home side. The visitors try to hold on, but after a few changes, the Blue and Whites escape again with Ruggiero’s block on Marconi (11-8) and Primavera’s block giving his team +4 to 12-8. Matheus extends the lead to 14-9 and his men make it to 21-15 from long range (Ruggiero reacts under the net). Incampo blocks 24-18 while Matheus signs the winning attack 25-21.
At the beginning of the second movement the script does not change, the hosts with Primavera (4:2) and Matheus (6:3) make the trend forward. Taccone takes the distances to +5 (14-9) and makes the rhythms boring. Ancona’s response is in Silvestrelli’s service (his team’s top scorer at the end of the game) with two aces for him, 17-13. Nevertheless, everything remains under control for coach Castellaneta’s men, who promptly fend off the opponent with Matheus (18:13) and Manginelli (19:13). The final bears the signature of Incampo, who signs at 24-18 straight from nine yards and then finishes with the whistle at 25-18.
The third set’s initial record, 3-3 and 6-6, is broken by Incampo, who earns the serve with the mark of 7-6, which he immediately exploits with the +2 ace, 8-6. The mini-break makes him a breakaway with Ruggiero’s block guarantee, 16-11 (+5). Last pride of the Dorians who try to get back by halving the distance (20-18) but Primavera repels the sender by placing the counter (21-18) and (23-18). On 24-18 there is the absolute debut in B for Portoghese, who takes over the Primavera himself in service. Marconi’s attack closes the set (25-19) and the entire contest.
