SuperLega, Itas Trentino dominant in Civitanova Marche

The excellent start of SuperLega by Itas Trentino continues at the Eurosuole Forum. Sunday night in Civitanova Marche, on a court where they had found success only in three out of twenty-three previous matches played, the Italian Champions took their eighth victory in as many matches of the regular season played so far, thanks to a resounding 3-0 result against Cucine Lube in the biggest match of the weekend.
The rematch of the Scudetto Final from last May has provided, as expected, spectacle and high-level volleyball, especially from the yellow-blue half of the court, where Michieletto (MVP and best scorer of the match with 16 points, including three at the serve and one block, and 57% in attack) and Rychlicki (13 with 58%) were absolutely dominant at the net, especially in the break point phase, highlighted by the constant good work between serving and blocking (both fundamentals scored six times). Itas Trentino dominated the first and third sets, won by a wide margin, and was also composed in the final moments of the second set, the only time when the opponents managed to put them in difficulty. With this performance, Soli's team rightfully earned the full points, maintaining their unbeaten record and staying close to the league leader Perugia, who has two more points but also one more game played.
