“Congratulations to Filottrano for the victory. They deserved it for how they put us in very difficult position. It was a hard match and I’m sorry that we were not able to finish the whole comeback at the end. Also, I regret because of the result 10-14 in the tie-break. We should have closed the match in our favor. Obviously, there is regret for how we ended the fifth set but the defeat does not affect in any way on our seasonal goal” said Novara’s blocker Cristina Chirichella.
