The dream of disappearing GLS Salerno Guiscards. At the PalaBerlinguer in Bellizzi, at the end of a wonderful final, the most beautiful in recent years, it is Volley World Napoli that comes out on top Campania Cup 23/24. However, there are many Regret for President Pino D'Andrea's Foxes, for the many missed opportunities, especially in the second set. The departure of Captain Corallo and his teammates is a dream.
On your marks, let's go and GLS Salerno Guiscards immediately takes a 0:4 lead. Sorrentino and Corallo scored, then the Foxes escaped with points from Giovagnoli and Rossin By Nicuolo Who places the ace from 6-14? There is virtually no story as Volley World Napoli, unbeaten this season, are unable to respond and the Foxes snap a break of nine consecutive points with Ruotolo on serve Giovagnoli which concludes parts 12-25.
The GLS received applause, but logically the reaction of the Neapolitan team followed in the second set, which immediately ended 5-0. Sorrentino's point breaks the series, but at 8:2 the set seems to be going well in Naples' direction. Instead, coach Cacace's team doesn't let themselves be disturbed, stays calm and reduces the deficit point by point, first equalizing at 18 points after Giovagnoli's point and then double the lead with two consecutive aces coral. Volley World doesn't give up, but at 22:24 GLS has two chances to end the set. The Foxes failed to capture two more set points, but failed to find the point that would certainly have changed the history of the final. Instead, it was Volley World that ended up closing the third set 30-28.
At the beginning of the third set, the GLS Salerno Guiscards tried to get going again immediately, but without speeding things up. It is played point by point, on the edge of an equilibrium that breaks when the Volley world extends to 18-14. Coach Cacace then uses Di Genoa Rossin The Foxes equalize again with 18. However, the decisive advantage lies with the Neapolitans, who closed the set with 25:21.
The progression of the fourth set is almost identical, with the Foxes also throwing their hearts over the obstacle to try and take the game to a tiebreak. Volley World shows no signs of slowing down. Once again, Sorrentino, top scorer with sixteen points, and Giovagnoli keep the Foxes in the game as they fight point for point, take the lead, recover, but immediately get back on level terms in a series of incredible emotions and great plays. However, with a score of 18:18, the decisive lead is once again with Volley World, which sprints to a score of 25:19 and thus wins the first trophy of the season.
“It was an exciting finale – explained the President of GLS Salerno Guiscards Pino D'Andrea – with two teams that breathed life into a beautiful game. Congratulations to the opponents, but I'm very happy with my girls' performance. Now we are focusing on the championship again with the aim of maintaining first place in the table until the end of the season“.
