Serie A1 leaders suffered shocking defeat in Round 7, while the team who was in focus by Italian media previous days also failed!




Nordmeccanica Piacenza, who had 4-1 record before this round of Italian championship, showed disappointed performance in away match against Imoco Volley Conegliano 3-0 (25-13, 25-23, 25-22).

Americans Megan Easy with 16 and Kelsey Robinson with 15 points pulled Conegliano up front, making clear to all that their team will fight for highest rankings in Italy’s league.

On the other side, Indre Sorokaite slightly stood out from her teammates with 12 points.

Sponsors of Igor Gorgonzola Novara put enormous pressure on the staff and players by announcing possible firing of the coach Luciano Pedullà and setter Noemi Signorile. The consequences are visible as Novara lost at home court to Metalleghe Sanitars Montichiari 3-2 (25-23, 25-20, 18-25, 18-25, 16-14).

Despite having amazing Croatian Samanta Fabris, who scored 29 points, home team couldn’t cope with 25 from Polish Berenika Tomsia and 15 from German Maren Brinker and Cristina Barcellini.
