In the postponement that closes the third day, the Venetians overwhelm Novara and continue their infinite positive streak
Conegliano-Novara 3-0 (25-22, 30-28, 25-23)
The minute of silence preceding the fortieth match between Conegliano and Novara is moving: the tribute to the memory of the young Afghan volleyball player Mahjabin Hakimi, killed by the Taliban as an athlete, is much more than a formal act. The race does not betray the expectations and proposes the balance seen in the latest challenges: the victory in the end still goes to the panthers, who keep the top of the standings in cohabitation with Busto and reach 68 in the unbeaten streak. Without De Gennaro, stopped by a slight resentment in the right calf, and replaced by Caravello, Santarelli relies on the sextet seen so far in the league with Wolosz, Egonu, Courtney, Omoruyi, Vuchkova and De Kruijf. Lavarini starts with Hancock, Karakurt, Bosetti, Daalderop, Washington, Chirichella and Fersino.
Novara starts strong (4-6), taking advantage of Hancock’s serve on Omoruyi, but Conegliano responds with a partial 8-0 thanks also to three forcing by the Piedmontese. Herbots’ entry revitalizes the guests (13-11), but the panthers accelerate again thanks to Vuchkova (20-11); Lavarini changes the diagonal and another comeback arrives (23-22) with two aces by D’Odorico, but in the end Egonu and De Kruijf close. No tears in the second set, but great balance from start to finish; it is with the wall that Conegliano holds up to a more square and constant Igor, capable of earning four set points by exploiting too many Gialloblù errors. Egonu loads the team on his shoulders and overturns the table, building the advantage three times that leads to the final 30-28. Novara holds up to Conegliano with Battistoni, D’Odorico and Montibeller on the field (9-12). There are many errors in the service on both sides and the game suffers. In the long run Novara believes less and enthusiasm pushes the panthers to yet another triumph.
