Conegliano Is One Win Away From Winning Her Fifth Italian Title
Prosecco Doc Imoco Volley Conegliano is one win away from winning their fifth Lega Pallavolo vivo Serie A1 Femminile title after defeating Vero Volley Monza in the Italian League Final Round on Saturday.
The league’s most recent, two-time, and three-time defending champions won their match against Monza in three straight sets (25-22, 25-12, and 25-22) in front of a sold-out crowd of more than 5,000 supporters at the Palaverde in Treviso. This victory altered the course of the series. Both of the previous meetings in this best-of-five series were decided in five sets, and they were both won by the side that competed away from home.
Conegliano has a chance to win their fourth consecutive Lega championship as soon as Tuesday evening, when the teams meet in Monza for the fourth match at 20:45 local time (18:45 GMT). In the event that it is necessary to play a fifth and final match, it will take place on Saturday at the same time in Treviso.
The scoreboard reflected Conegliano’s easy victory against Monza, as the reigning champions were far superior in every facet of competition compared to their opponent. The Panthers had a huge advantage over their opponents in terms of blocks (nine to one) and aces (seven to one), and they hit with an efficiency rate of 43% compared to Monza’s 33%.
Raphaela Folie, a middle blocker who earned six points, remarked that she believes her team “discovered our game” today and was able to play with serenity and have a lot of fun during the match (five kills, one block). “This match might have been shorter than the prior two, but it was still a battle to the very end. The series is not yet done, and I anticipate another tough fight on Tuesday, despite the fact that we played a fantastic match and prevailed at a crucial juncture. It was incredibly thrilling to bring this triumph home to our loyal supporters.
Joanna Wolosz, the setter for Conegliano and the team captain, was awarded Most Valuable Player after she produced two points, both of which were aces. Wolosz led Conegliano to an amazing performance. The Polish superstar was also responsible for another outstanding performance by her opponent, Paola Egonu, who finished the match with 17 points, making her the game’s high scorer (15 kills, one block, one ace).
Outside hitter Kathryn Plummer of the United States came up huge again for the victorious team, earning 14 points (12 kills, 1 block, 1 ace). This was four more points than Dutch middle blocker Robin de Kruijf, who had 10 and a match-high three blocks.
The comments of Conegliano’s coach Daniele Santarelli were as follows: “It was a great win for us, and I feel like the match played out quite different from the one that took place on Tuesday.” “We wanted to play with less nervousness on the court, to be a little smarter from a tactical sense, and to put more of an emphasis on making the right decisions.”
It wasn’t a perfect match, and there were still times when we lost our concentration, such as near the conclusion of the first set, when they came close to tying the score. But I believe that today, we showed the kind of team that we are – a squad that plays well in blocking and defense and that is willing to work incredibly hard to attain goals.
As Monza tried to make a comeback, they utilized all but one of their 14 available players. Belgian opposite Lise van Hecke was the most productive player for Monza, as she scored nine points (eight kills, one block). The next two scorers were outside hitters Jordan Larson and Hanna Daviskyba, who both finished with eight points.
The team’s head coach, Marco Gaspari, stated their desire to play game five in their home arena. There was a really good squad on the other side of the net today, and when Conegliano perform as well as they did tonight, there is not much that can be done. We played pretty well in the first set, but our failure to capitalize on the possibilities we were presented with caused us to pay a very high price. But I’m delighted to see that we can compete with Conegliano, and if we want to beat them, we can’t let them run away with the score, because then things get way too complicated. “
