Imoco Volley Conegliano overcame the most difficult obstacle in the 2019/20 Italian Women’s Volleyball Championship regular season.


Imoco Volley Conegliano are still undefeated in the Lega Pallavolo Serie A Femminile regular season (5-0) but they had to work hard to keep this status. Newcomers to the league Golden Tulip VolAlto 2.0 Caserta became the first team to rip off at least one set from Imoco - they took two: 3-2 (25-22, 21-25, 25-18, 21-25, 15-13). An experienced American outside hitter Kimberly Hill top-scored for Imoco with 19 points. Imoco’s star Paola Egonu did not play much today. She was not in the line-up and only played the turning points of the match.

Èpiù Pomì Casalmaggiore dropped the match that went smoothly into their favor out of hands but recovered on time to outplay Zanetti Bergamo: 3-2 (25-17, 25-22, 24-26, 20-25, 15-13). The most deserving player for this outcome was Cuban international Kenia Carcaces, who scored 23 points.

Savino Del Bene Scandicci staged an outstanding comeback on the road against Saugella Team Monza, from 0-2 to 3-2. For this, they can thank Polish teenager Magdalena Stysiak, who poured in 34 points, including 5 aces.

Il Bisonte Firenze imposed dominance in an away match against Reale Mutua Fenera Chieri (0-3) and definitely became the most pleasant surprise in the championship so far. Prospect Sylvia Nwakalor was the most effective player for the winning side with 13 points but through only a 37% attack (11/30). Il Bisonte follow the leaders Imoco in the charts with 4-1 and 12 points.

Led by Anna Nicoletti (19 points), Lardini Filottrano recorded a first win this season, which came after a two-set deficit against Bartoccini Fortinfissi Perugia: 3-2 (24-26, 21-25, 25-13, 25-23, 15-13). Even 35 points from Brazilian Rosamaria Montibeller did not help Perugia to break the ice in Serie A!

ITA M: Modena conquer Trentino’s home court after 4 years, Perugia record 21st win in a row

Modena is on the roll. After Lube, they conquered Trentino and shown they will be formidable opponent in play-offs.
Something is wrong in Trentino land. Same players as last year but much worse results. Something will have to change soon, either results or coach... Reply

ITA M: Modena conquer Trentino’s home court after 4 years, Perugia record 21st win in a row

This was a terrific match to watch. High level players everywhere. Christenson is having the best year of his career in my opinion. Anderson was good early, Zaytzev was great late amd Holt was automatic in the middle.
Trentino needs a complete lineup soon. Russell was the best player this match for both teams. Whoever is going to get this him next year is going to be lucky.
Can't wait for these playoffs. Reply
