Italy: a good Ravenna beat a bad Padova in recovery match of Round 102 min read
Another match at the Kioene Arena in Padua, just 3 days after the one with Sir Safety Conad Perugia, played on Monday, for a very important bottom-class duel against relegation. The guests are Consar Ravenna, who is chasing at -4 points away, in the recovery of Round 10. Ravenna is not beautiful, but more concrete, and after 4 hard-fought sets, they take to home the entire stake. The final of the second set is a sensational mistake of the referees couple, who closes their eyes on a touch of Ravenna after the dispute with Shoji and denies Padua the possibility of playing the set on the field, as well as the possibility, perhaps, of changing the fortunes of the match itself. In any case, the hosts are unrecognizable also compared to the last match against Perugia.
Without captain Volpato, the hosts are really too imprecise and plays for 3 sets almost only with the outside-hitters and the opposite, wasting too many decisive points and, in fact, 40 mistakes have been made. Top scorer of the match Stern with 26 points and 56% in attack, even if the best percentages are for Bottolo with 61% (18 points, 1 ace and 56% reception) and Grozdanov with 64% and 11 points (including 4 blocks). The MVP title, however, goes to the Canadian from Ravenna Loeppki, author of 21 points scored mostly in the first three sets.
