The new mascot Tonnino also made its debut. MVP on the match was Wijsmans with 68% and 17 points (2 blocks).
Tine Urnaut (Tonno Callipo Vibo Valentia): “We struggled to settle down today, we started off slow and chasing Cuneo is not easy. In the first two sets, we have been dominated. We got ourselves a chance in the third, we built a lead thanks to a strong start, but as soon as we lowered our guards a little Cuneo pounced and got back in it. They sealed it with some brilliant plays”.
Tsevan Sokolov (Bre Banca Lannutti Cuneo): “I cannot say this was easy. And Vibo had made it very hard for us already the last time we met. This time we did not take anything for granted, we tried to stay composed at the start without overdoing things, we competed as we needed to. I think the key was our concentration, we never lowered our guards, we might not have been at 100% either but at least at a good 80%”.
