Bauru setter, one-time Olympic champion, Danielle Lins “Dani Lins” didn’t rotate well prior to her serve and gave away the point and a set to Sesc. Tandara Caixeta and Juciely Silva scored 11 points apiece for the leaders in the charts, with the latter serving 5 aces. As for Bauru, Azerbaijani Polina Rahimova put down 23 points, including 4 aces.

Thus, Osasco maintained their unbeaten run to four games. Not even 30 points (62 attacks!) from LorenneTeixeira didn’t help Barueri. Serbian Ana Bjelica top-scored for the winning side with 14 points.
