Another missed opportunity in the fight for salvationValnegri refrigerator furniture those, in the internal challenge against Garlasco doesn’t even win a set.
Many, yes too many mistakes against a strong and compact opponent who, unsurprisingly, has 22 points more in the overall standings. At the start, Garlasco starts with three shots, but Bergese and Mirabelli react immediately. The five are equal, after which the guests take another three steps forward, but Scarigli brings Acqui back to level. After two back-and-forths, Lombardi rise again, this time taking a six-length lead, but Zonta and two penalties cut the gap in half immediately, followed by a block from Mirabelli, a charge from Scarigli and an ace from Lombardi that misses the equaliser (18-20). The thermal kept up the race to catch up until 10:23 p.m.: Lombardi and Scarigli closed two of the three points behind, the opponents stopped the break and found the set point.
In the second part, after an initial double call and response, Pavia begins to advance. At 6-13, Ruggiero, also the author of an ace, tries to start the short break, but it ends after just three points. On the contrary, Garlasco finds the winning move that puts her eleven lengths ahead and sends the acquesi into the total tilt, whose score is only 13 hits at the end of the set.
The situation doesn’t seem to be improving in the third group, but Fabbrini, Bondarenko and Lombardi bring it back to a draw at 3-7. The Pavia players come back with a two-step lead, but Bondarenko catches up. However, Garlasco again goes unchallenged and pushes back to find the win break at 14-17 that puts them three steps away from victory. Despite Fabbrini and Bondarenko being shortened by three points, nothing could be done. After another punch from Fabbrini, the Pavia team finds closure.
