Another defeat at Volley Tricolore, this time against Porto Viro, a team that had already proved difficult in the first round and that last night Bigi reconfirmed its strength: “Right now it’s a bit difficult to understand what the team needs. – says Antonino Suraci, opposite of Conad, at the end of the meeting – I think there are many problems and at the moment we are trying to work on them; we hope to return to winning as soon as possible”.
Conad therefore remains, with 21 points, in twelfth place: “For us all the matches at the moment are a final, it’s bad to say, but we know how the play outs work”. The opposite Giallorossi number 17 continues, having climbed to the end of the second set to help his teammates: “Regardless of what Lagonegro does, which is only two points away from us, we must try to scrape together as many points as possible and hope for the best. Between now and the end of the year we should play all matches with this mentality”.
Lorenzo Caciagli, center back from Reggio, author of no less than four aces in the match, certainly tried to give his teammates breathing space with his serve, but it doesn’t seem to have been enough: “We have to work at 360 degrees on everything, both serving and in the break phase, and on the walls. Too bad about tonight, because when there began to be glimmers of good deeds, we shut down immediately. We have a week off, due to the Coppa Italia finals, and therefore we have even more time to work and even more time to improve.”
Coach Cantagalli ends the comments: “Surely the break that is coming will give us time to reflect. It’s clear that we knew this would be a difficult match, but things went worse than expected, in the sense that we had a bad day in terms of the whole team’s attack. Unfortunately the numbers are strange, we played the best game in reception and the worst in attack; none reached the sufficiency.
At the moment we are one step away from relegation if we look at the standings, obviously there are still many games, but this creates a lot of tension, especially for a team not used to being at the bottom of the standings.
