Pineto steal three points from Modena
Trentino had a tough game against Perugia also Treviso did not win easy in Latina. Nobody would expect easy victory of Pineto in Modena.
TRENKWALDER MODENA – ARAN CUCINE ABRUZZO PINETO 0:3
Pineto got the breakthrough they wanted by coming back from Modena with its second win of the season, and a very important one to keep its hopes to stay up alive. This unexpected stop means Modena finishes fourth at the halfway point of the championship and will meet Macerata home in the Italian Cup quarter final. Osvaldo Hernandez again MVP.
Roberto Fant (Aran Cucine Abruzzo Pineto): “We’ve been working very hard in the last two weeks but I certainly didn’t expect to obtain such result that quickly. Everyone played well, Modena was not at its best and we took full advantage”.
ITAS DIATEC TRENTINO – RPA-LUIGIBACCHI.IT PERUGIA 3:1
Perugia made it difficult for Trento, Perugia led for most parts of the game after taking the first set but in the end they had to get on the coach back home with a 3-1 defeat. Thanks to this win, Trento is winter champs, and will face the number 8 in the table, which is… Perugia. However, the 14 points that separates the two teams in the table were not that obvious on court.
Emanuele Birarelli (Itas Diatec Trentino): “Perugia played an excellent game, but in the end we managed to win it thanks to our individualities. Their pressure on the serve made us struggle for most of the game. Still, we managed to stay in it and take three great points with character”.
ESSE-TI CARILO LORETO – LUBE BANCA MARCHE MACERATA 0:3
In a derby that had not occurred in the top division for seven years, Omrcen took over to lead his team to a sweep.
Valerio Vermiglio (Lube Banca Marche Macerata): “We did well to handle the ups and downs we had during the game. These are three very important points. We faded in the third set, but we took advantage of their lack of confidence to finish the game in straight sets”.

COPRATLANTIDE PIACENZA – ACQUA PARADISO MONZA 3:0
Piacenza thumped Monza in a one-way traffic game. Zlatanov was the usual leader (MVP) of a team that put the opponent into all sorts of problems with its serve.
Pietro Rinaldi (CoprAtlantide Piacenza): “It’s been a beautiful game. There was only one team on court. It was not easy because there was myself as new player in the team, but the group made things really easy for me. If we keep this spirit and dedication, sky is the limit”.
PRISMA TARANTO – BRE BANCA LANNUTTI CUNEO 0:3
Cuneo managed to keep a very high level of play despite the fact it was without Wijsmans. The serve (5 aces), blocks (12) and the dig (Henno the specialist again) were Cuneo’s weapons to beat Taranto, which stopped to play at 20 in the first as they felt they were victim of a poor referee decision.
ANDREOLI LATINA – SISLEY TREVISO 2:3
Latina grabbed a point against Treviso in a game with maximum competitive spirit from the first play. Latina surrendered only in the fifth to Bontje’s spikes.
Samuele Papi (Sisley Treviso): “The first two sets went very well but then we lost our rhythm. We did well to win the fifth despite falling three points behind. We’re happy with the win but disappointed not to have sealed it earlier”.
TONNO CALLIPO VIBO VALENTIA – YOGA FORLI 1:3
