Despite the absence of several starters, Sesc RJ Flamengo joined the group of teams with perfect scores after two rounds of the 2020/21 Brazilian Women’s Volleyball Championship.


Sesc RJ Flamengo have been heavily suffering from absences of their players since the beginning of the 2020/21 Superliga Banco do Brasil regular season for women but are part of the group of six teams (half the league) with perfect scores after two rounds.

Josefa Fabíola Alves and Roberta Silva tested positive for Covid-19 and were added to the list of absent players which already consists of injured Ariele Moreira, Natália Araújo ‘Natinha’, Colombian Camila Gómez, and Lorenne Teixeira.

The 16-year-old outside hitter Ana Cristina Souza took the chance given by the head coach Bernardo Rezende ’Bernardinho’ against São Caetano and top-scored Sesc Flamengo in a straight-set win with 15 points, including 5 aces. She was also amazing in the reception with 82 % (27 % excellent).

Led in scoring by Tifanny Abreu (16 points) and in reception by Vanessa Janke (79 %; 39 % excellent), Sesi Vôlei Bauru defeated Curitiba Vôlei by a 3-1 and fell to the group of undefeated teams. One of the highlights of the São Paulo team, the Azerbaijani opposite hitter Polina Rahimova, tested positive for Covid-19 and didn’t play today.

Vargas exclusively for WoV: “I have no desire to change my federation of origin“

Re: @George
This season, she sometimes receives the serve in Turkish league. I guess instead of Boskovic, Terzic wants her to replace Mihajlovic. Reply

ITA M: Piacenza stun Milano on road

So this was a dominant and impressive road win for Piacenza. Baranowicz is getting a better connection to the outside and smartly is forcing more middle action.
I have really been impressed with the growth of Scanferia. He and Clevernot are passing much better. With the addition of Mousavi and Russell and Grozer playing at such a high level, Gas Sales is going to make a serious move in the 2nd half of the season.
As far as the league, Trentino has been a major dissapointment, Modena under Christenson leadership has been terrific, Monza remains dangerous, and overall the league is very competitive and fun.
Lube and Perugia may not be there at the end.
The league needs to find a way to increase its exposure worldwide, imo Reply
