Osasco/Audax broke the unbeaten record of Itambé/Minas in the 2019/20 Brazilian Women’s Volleyball Championship regular season.

 

In the penultimate round of the first half of the 2019/20 Superliga Feminina regular season, Osasco beat Minas by a 3-2 (25-20, 21-25, 16-25, 25-20, 15-9) and rose to the 4th place in the charts. This was the first defeat of the titleholders in the competition that came after 9 wins. Minas have now fallen to the 3rd place in the standings. The match was marked with the appearance of 3 Olympic winners (Thaísa and Jaqueline in Minas and Sheilla in Osasco) on the court and by the 40th birthday of Minas head coach Nicola Negro, whose celebration of a big day was spoiled with a defeat. Cuban opposite hitter Heidy Casanova put down 23 points for the winning side for which Jaqueline Endres made 5 kill blocks and Roberta Ratzke served 4 aces. Bruna Honório and Kasiely Clemente “Kasi” scored 14 points apiece for Minas.

With a straight-set victory over C.R. Flamengo, the vice-champions Dentil/Praia Clube moved up to the 2nd place in the standings, skipping Minas. Fluminense F.C. improved their ranking by 4 places (from 10th to 6th) after prevailing over Curitiba Vôlei (3-1).

ITALIAN CUP M: Verona and Piacenza disappoint once again

Piacenza will not have a good year with Hierrezuelo setting. He arrived unprepared and cannot set the front pin hitters and bic at all. Cleverly and Russell have no idea where those sets are going to be. The libero Scanferla is young and the staff is asking him to pass too much of the court.
Gardini is not leading this team in the right direction. Look for another setter quickly. Heck try Shaw there at this point.
Talent is wasting here.
