Ravenna played a good game, took a 1-0 lead but then surrendered every time at the end of the following three sets.
Antonio Babini (coach CMC Ravenna): “We started off very well and won the first set, then Bencz came on and things turned around. Still, we could have won each one of the other sets. It’s useless to linger on that defeat now, at the end of the day the team played a good game. Unfortunately at the end of sets, we lacked a little bit of composure and experience”.
Andrea Giani (coach M.Roma Volley): “In the first set, we made too many mistakes, and the second as well started badly but then Bencz’s entry changed the course of the game. Overall, we made too many mistakes, though, fortunately, in the clutch moments we managed to snatch the sets”.
