By clinching the first two sets, No.1 Bolívar threatened to sweep the fierce rivals UPCN, the second-seed, in front of the packed stands at their República de Venezuela gymnasium. But at the end of the second set, UPCN coach Fabián Armoa decided to replace Croatian outside hitter Danijel Galić with a prospect Nicolás Lazo and the things went into the favor of his club all the way – 3-2 (23-25, 22-25, 25-23, 25-21, 15-13.

The Pole Zbigniew Bartman topped UPCN with 32 points. The Brazilian Théo Lopes tallied 31 points (4 aces, 2 kill blocks) for Bolívar. Leonardo Patti added 86% reception (21 digs, 1 error, 67% perfect).

Game 2 is already scheduled for tomorrow, March 31.
