Cuneo brings Novara to beauty

Great pride of the Pistol team able to turn both the partial and the game upside down in the final part of the first set, until that moment (21-14) in the control of the blue as race 1. From then on, the inertia was all in favor of the cuneiforms, dragged by an excellent Ilaria Spirito (great protagonist in defense and awarded with merits as MVP of the party), who often forced the blues to make mistakes, stumbled upon in a negative afternoon on all grounds.

Cuneo in the field with Gicquel in front of Signorile, Squarcini and central Stufi, crushers Giovannini and Degradi and Spirito libero; Igor with Hancock as director and Karakurt diagonally, Washington and Chirichella in the center, Bosetti and Daalderop in the band and Fersino free.

Daalderop signs the first break with two winning parallels (2-4) but Stufi in the net fixes the break (5-4) and triggers a point-to-point broken by two blue walls, signed by Karakurt and Daalderop (9-12 ). Chirichella empties the serve (11-17, ace), Karakurt escapes 12-19 diagonally and Washington on the wall even finds the 14-21 that seems to mortgage the set; Cuneo hits Degradi who, thanks to a series of blue inaccuracies and great defenses from Cuneo, leads to an incredible partial 10-0, which brings the white-and-reds to the ball stopped with 24-21. A service outside Hancock is 25-22 and 1-0.

Cuneo flies to 4-1 with Stufi blocking and after Washington’s error (7-3) Lavarini immediately stops the game, while the blues try to return with the American to the block (7-5), before the new rest worth 12-7. by mistake by Karakurt, then replaced by Herbots. A very positive turn in Chirichella’s bat drags the blues to the 15-9 to 15-16 comeback, with Washington and Daalderop as protagonists, while the next point to point sees the inertia reversed to 22-20 signed by Degradi and pipe. after a great defense of Spirito. Hancock signs the ace of impact (22-22), Karakurt alternates blocking and attacking (22-24) and a Chirichella goal is worth 22-25 and 1-1.

Novara restarts strong (1-6) with Daalderop as the protagonist but Cuneo does not give up and shortens first with the ace of Gicquel (3-6), then with a winning touch of Signorile (5-7) that then, in his turn. in the bat, also a favorable advance with an ace deflected from the tape and two points followed by Gicquel (10-9). Hancock finds the ace 10-11, the teams face the Blues who stay ahead until 15-16 and Stufi who signs the ace of the lead on 17-16, while shortly after Squarcini taps Bosetti and finds a strong break: 20-18. Novara did not react, Cuneo escaped until 24-21 with Kuznetsova and shortly after Degradi closed the half in parallel, 25-21.

Cuneo with Kuznetsova in the sextet, Novara with Bonifacio in the center and after a balanced start (5-5), Degradi’s usual batting round “breaks” the set immediately, throwing his team to 10-5, thank you to a blockade in Karakurt. and an attacking invasion of the Turks. Lavarini revolutionizes the sextet by introducing Battistoni and Herbots but Cuneo doesn’t stop and goes 12-6 with Gicquel and then 16-8, “doubling” the blues who can’t return. A wall of Signorile is worth the ball to 24-15, Stufi quickly closes the accounts and returns everything in the third game.
