Winning debut for Sportilia in the Serie D championship. Unlike those listed Prima donna Bari On the PalaDolmen tables, the young white and blue team scored the first three points, crowning an encouraging team performance. After winning the first set in a comeback and granting an encore in the following set (losing the advantage), the Bisceglie team suffered a defeat in the third set, which promptly turned into a 3-1 in the fourth and final quarter -final score made up for it.
Trainer starts Nicola Nuzzi relies on the diagonal consisting of Feliciana Lopolito in the direction and Alessia Simone on the side, Claudia Gentile and Simona Amato in the band, Angela Di Pinto and Margherita Valente in the middle, Martina Mastrapasqua as libero. The promising central defender is out due to a bout of flu Martina Manganelli, not even in the report. On the other side of the net is an equally motivated prima donna, whose squad includes many athletes who already have experience in the category and some of whom also have a history in Serie C.
In the opening set, Sportilia was forced to chase for a long time, although the gap was never more than 3 points. Lopolito and her teammates demonstrate the tenacity of never allowing themselves to be decisively distanced, so that they make fewer mistakes in the final section, catch up with their opponents and manage to prevail with an energetic sprint with 25:21. Opposite trend for a good part of the next faction, with the Bisceglie team up to 4 points ahead, a lead that will however be recovered by the capital’s sextet due to some mistakes (due to a pinch of physical and mental fatigue from the Biancazzurro team). could: The verdict is therefore left to the advantages, a phase in which Sportilia pulls out its claws and emerges victorious with a thrilling 30:28. Primadonna, however, proves to be anything but submissive and starts in the third, while Bisceglie lowers his percentages in almost all fundamentals despite some changes from Nuzzi (also making room for Anastasia Shcherban and the second setter Claudia Mastrapasqua) and has to give up the first set of the season (13 -25). The reaction of the Blue and Whites in the fourth set was vehement, they played with great spirit and at a good level from the first to the last change to make it 25:18, which is worth the first, well-deserved hurray.
“I am very happy and satisfied with the result of our debut – comments the coach at the end of the game Nuzzi – . We met a team that excelled in this category and the feedback was more reassuring than I could have imagined the night before. My girls started off better than last year’s debut game in D, seeming more organized and confident, although there are still a lot of things to fix in the game’s automatic mechanics. In fact, we were less distracted than our opponents. I hope that this victory will give even more motivation to such a young collective that can only grow. I am also confident that an important player like Manganelli will recover for the away game next Sunday in Conversano.”
