In their already a controversial match of the Liga Nacional Superior de Voleibol (LNSV) against Circolo Sportivo Italiano, the coach of San Martín, Spaniard Juan Diego García, made a big mistake.

In the finish of the third set, he had three foreign players in line-up instead of two allowed by the regulations – American Victoria Dennis, Brazilian Milca da Silva and his compatriot Patricia Aranda.

Circolo filed a complaint at the end of the match and it was accepted. Thus, San Martín got forfeited (25-0, 25-0, 25-0).

There are still four rounds until the end of Regular Season, but San Martín now have only one point more than the closest rivals in the rankings, Deportivo Geminis.
