Obras de San Juan are still alive in the playoff quarterfinals of the 2017/18 Argentinean men’s volleyball championship - Liga Argentina de Voleibol Banco Nación.



By beating the third-seed Lomas Vóley at home by a 3-2 (17-25, 33-31, 25-16, 21-25, 17-15) in Game 3 of the playoff quarterfinals, No.6 Obras de San Juan extended the series to at least one more encounter. Obras will host Game 4 as well (March 11) and have a chance to level things up.

The Cuban Osmel Camejo topped the winning side with 24 points, while Maximiliano Scarpin added 6 kill blocks. Federico Pereyra scored 19 points (3 aces, 2 kill blocks) for Lomas, who just returned from the 2018 South American Club Championship and maybe underachieved a bit because of this. Alejandro Toro contributed with 73% reception (53 digs, 1 error).

The titleholders and also the top-seed Personal Bolívar, recovered from a debacle in the continental tournament and an injury of their starting setter, the Belgian Frank Depestele, and took a 2-1 lead in the series against No.8 Monteros Vóley Club. The team coached by Javier Weber prevailed by a 3-2, partially 21-25, 25-23, 19-25; 25-20, 15-13.

The Bulgarian Rozalin Penchev from Bolívar scored game-high 27 points (4 aces) and made 83% reception (12 digs, 1 error). The team captain Leonardo Patti recorded 73% attack (8/11). Brian Melgarejo and Brazilian Leandro Silva „Leandrão“ scored 13 points apiece for Monteros. Germán Figueroa made 4 kill blocks.

These two teams are waiting for their rivals in the semifinals.
