The fourth adventure of Tonno Callipo Vibo Valentia in the Credem Banca Play Offs begins under the best auspices, overcoming the first insidious obstacle with a double success, repeating last Sunday’s three to one and eliminating a combative Consar Ravenna with the tiebreak success in the match held last night at the “Angelo Costa” sports hall.

There is great euphoria in the Vibonese environment, but also the awareness that one must keep one’s feet firmly on the ground because what has been accomplished is only the first step. The road to completing the hoped-for return to the Superlega is still long and fraught with difficulties and there are other quite onerous commitments to face.

The success against Ravenna will allow coach Cesar Douglas Silva to avoid not only a further complication with the play-off match, but above all to be able to preserve precious energies in a Play Off where an entire season is played in just over six weeks.

Tonno Callipo Vibo Valentia already knows its opponent in the upper part of the scoreboard, Kemas Lamipel Santa Croce, who overtook Pordenone yesterday evening at the “PalaPrata” by replicating the three to zero with which he had won the first leg match last Sunday.

The first appointment with the Semifinals is scheduled for Wednesday 26 April (start at 19.30) at the “PalaMaiata”, while the return match will be played at the Palasport “Giancarlo Parenti” on Sunday 30 April (18.00). The eventual play-off match is scheduled in Vibo Valentia on Wednesday 3 May also because, as happened for the quarter-finals, the semi-finals are also played in the best of three games, unlike the grand final, which will be played in the best of 5 games.
