Italy’s rookie Prosecco Doc-Imoco CONEGLIANO continues to make headlines in the 2014 CEV DenizBank Volleyball Champions League after edging also last year’s bronze medalists Unendo Yamamay BUSTO ARSIZIO to follow up on last week’s home victory over Turkey’s giant Galatasaray Daikin ISTANBUL. This time the players around head coach Marco Gaspari edged their countrywomen 3:1 (25-13, 25-22, 22-25, and 25-17) to claim the leadership in Pool E.


Busto – Conegliano

Some 3,000 fans came together at the Palayamamay for the much anticipated Italian derby that was supposed to highlight the second round of the prelims. CONEGLIANO was paced by their Bulgarian player Emiliya Nikolova who registered 23 points in the end and well marshaled by their American setter Carli Lloyd who found the right tempo especially with opposite Valentina Tirozzi. CONEGLIANO also stood out with their blocks – 18 in the end – and even though Unendo Yamamay came back after a slow start, that was not enough to stop the run of their compatriots. Young opposite Marika Bianchini was the best player for the hosts in their losing effort with 17 points – including 3 aces.
