Italy: Ravenna beats Vibo at tie break in the advance of Round 23
Consar Ravenna needed 5 sets to defeat the rivals of Tonno Callipo Calabria Vibo Valentia. In December Ravenna won the game in 128 minutes, while this time it takes 15 more minutes and a Recine named MVP of the match with 16 points and 67% in attack to celebrate the ninth victory of the season, the sixth in the last seven home games. Nothing to do for Vibo Valentia, despite Drame Neto who closes the game with 25 points despite a first set at zero. This was the first game in the history of Ravenna volleyball played behind closed doors. And in Italy, due the outbreak of coronavirus, it will be so, at least until April 4…..
And, interestingly, Tonno Callipo Vibo Valentia itself has announced that they want to play without an audience until the end of the season.
