ITA M: Modena blew 2-1 lead, Lube win first battle in semis!

2012 0

The reigning champions Azimut Modena didn't manage to take the win in the first semifinal clash of the Italian Serie A1, even though they had 2-1 lead after three sets...

 

Lube have opened match much better, scoring some good points and providing a lot of joy for their fans. But, in another two sets, reigning champions raised to tie the score and afterwards to take the lead. 

It was a shocking moment for the first placed team in regular season. But they didn't lose a hope. They started playing like in the first set, which was enough to tie the score against Modena.

In the tie-break, Modena were trailing all the time, while the home team controlled the situation on the court and that led them to the first win in the semifinals. 

The top scorer of the game was Earvin Ngapeth, who had an amazing display, scoring 31 points. But, since they didn't achieve the goal, he has to forget this performance as soon as possible and to look forward to next meeting of theset two teams.

In home team, Tsvetan Sokolov had 17 points, while Osmany Juantorena added 12 and Davide Candellaro 11.

WL 2017: Last point and celebration of Slovenia (VIDEO)

I think that they proved it on volleyball court that they deserve to play in the group 1 among best teams. They were way better than other teams in group 2. Any other decision than that would be unfair. Reply

WL 2017: Slovenia rout Japan to win Group 2, still hoping to advance to elite division (VIDEO)

Re: @John Doek it is pretty obvious that we were not talking about the broadcasting quality of the finals but about the (lack of) consequences of this result in the future WL. If the FIVB holds on to that new idea of them then the result of this final which means 'Slovenia goes to Group 1' and 'Italy goes to Group 2' will never happen. That idea of the FIVB eliminates the competitive fairness of the WL and destroys fair chances of small countries like everyone should know which countries they are by now.

So, if Slovenia doesn't promovate it is without a doubt a waste of time.
