The first day of the women’s Champions League ends with Novara’s victory over Thy Istanbul.
Novara-Thy Istanbul 3-0 (25-21, 25-22, 26-24)
Novara’s Champions League journey begins in the best way, which folds the newcomer THY Istanbul into three sets, led by Marcello Abbondanza on the bench. Against her former team Karakurt makes the difference in the first two, complicated partial, in which Igor has an important push also from her central players, with captain Chirichella very inspired. Stefano Lavarini chooses his starting line-up, confirming Daalderop at the start, with Bosetti in the band; the diagonal is that formed by Hancock and Karakurt, captain Chirichella and Washington in the center, with Fersino free. Abundance proposes the former Carlini in dribbling, opposite to Van Ryk, Kingdom and Rabadzhieva bands, Dixon and Kalac in the center, with Yildirim free.
Igor immediately enters the game well, with a first set conducted with confidence, thanks also to the broadsides of a highly motivated Karakurt, who pushes the blues to 16-11. Hancock makes good use of Washington’s fast (6 points in the set with 3 blocks) and the gap widens up to 20-13. Novara reaches the set point on 24-16, wastes 5 chances and after two time outs by Lavarini finally manages to close the accounts with the usual Karakurt (5 in the set) at 25-21. Second set in the swing: Hancock opens a partial that brings Igor to 10-7. THY’s response on the bar from Kingdom (10 all) and a new break from Novara with Chirichella unsurpassed on the block for 14-10. Again the reaction of Istanbul, which slips a 3-0 run, but again Lavarini’s team finds a way to escape, with an extremely effective block (18-15, Daalderop). The push and pull is not over, the Turks return to 21 all and the finish is very tight: Karakurt after a video check is 23-22, Bosetti places the ace that is worth two set balls and after two blocks of Chirichella she is still the Turkish of Novara, with its tenth point, to close the accounts on 25-22. Above two sets Igor tries to run away, still dragged by Chirichella’s walls and Karakurt’s broadsides (9-4). Istanbul, however, does not give up and keeps hooked to the set (11-9). Lavarini gives Karakurt breath, inserting Rosamaria, who immediately enters the match, marking the 14-11 from place two. Novara checks and then gives another shot of gas (18-13). It is not enough to close the games, because the THY goes back again and, thanks to a moment of heeling of Daalderop in reception, reopens the set on 19 all. Rosamaria restarts Igor, Bosetti with a block out resumes the break but a wall right on the Brazilian brings Istanbul back on the line at an altitude of 22. A magic by Daalderop, a powerful response by Van Ryk, who then throws the joke on the net. the match ball is worth for Igor. The first is not enough, but on the second attempt Karakurt closes 26-24.
