After a bitter defeat against Perugia last week, Marmi Lanza Verona mobilized and prepared for the next challange. From the first whistle in the match with Castellana Grotte Verona built the advantage. On the net shined Ter Horst, Gotsev and Rak worked well on the center and Verona could celebrate 2 won sets. In the 3rd set Marmi Lanza got lost and the guests, led by Ferreira, who made 3 aces, corrected efficiency in attack. That part of the game belongs to Castellana. However, in the 4th set it was the home team that recovered its rhythm and efficacy and won the whole match 3-1.
The MVP of the match was chosen Ter Horst with 24 points, including 3 blocks and 62% in attack. From the other side the best scorer was Giulio Sabbi with 18 points with 47% on the net.
“We all wanted to win this game, the whole team joined hands in order to get these 3 first points in front of our spectators. Tonight we played good game, we forced in every element, we had a slight fall in the 3rd set, otherwise we could win 3-0.” – said after the match Thijs Ter Horst.
