Saraelen Lima scored 23 points for Pinheiros.

After making her debut this season in Superliga three days ago, Tandara Caixeta was sidelined once again, this time due to tonsillitis. However, it didn’t disturb her teammates from Sesc RJ to sweep C.R. Flamengo and stay undefeated: 3-0 (25-21, 29-27, 25-14). Renata Colombo “Renatinha“ and Juciely Silva scored 17 points apiece, with the latter making as many as 8 kill blocks! Milka Marcília Silva was also amazing in this segment (6).
