The snapshot that will remain impressed for a long time in the Verona Volleyball house is the jubilation of the audience in the arena who started from the last point brought down by Mozic. Surrounded by a packed and enthralling AGSM AIM shovel, WithU Verona wrote another important page in history, overtaking the Valsa Group Modena for the first time since the birth of the company and breaking its own record of consecutive victories, which had been beaten seven days before on the Padua field. Furthermore, of the thirteen victories collected up to this moment in the season, the one against the Emilians was the sixth obtained in the tie-break. And now the standings read: fifth place – ex aequo with Piacenza – and 31 total points, with the Play Offs arithmetically centred.
Over the next weekend, SuperLega Credem Banca will take a break to allow the Del Monte Coppa Italia Final Four to take place in Rome. The championship will resume on the first weekend of March. Stoytchev’s team, however, resumed its activities this afternoon, after the usual day of rest to recover energy after Sunday evening’s commitment. The group met to carry out the unloading session in the weight room. Tomorrow, then, we will start again with the work focused on technique and improvement of the game system within a double session, which will also be repeated on Thursday. On Friday, the Scala players will face a friendly test at the Monza Arena against Vero Volley, and then do some unloading exercises the following day. The next appointment is scheduled for March 5 on the Emma Villas Aubay Siena field.
“We are obviously happy for the two points, for the fifth win in a row: we don’t want to stop there.” These are the words of assistant coach Dario Simoni, who also keeps everyone to attention: “It often happens that you play two incredible sets and then have a mental decline in the third. We have to be good at pushing further to bring home the entire stake. It is a step that young teams like ours must learn to make. We are working on it: it is part of the growth process”.
