The Del Monte Junior League 2023 got underway today, with Verona Volley engaged in the first two matches of the group stage at the Eurosuole Forum in Civitanova Marche.
TRUE VOLLEYBALL MONZA – VERONA VOLLEYBALL 3-0 (25-23; 28-26; 25-21)
In the opening match of the tournament, Verona battles but fails to snatch points against the difficult Vero Volley, capable of imposing itself with the result of 3-0. The Scala players have a good approach to the match and gain a five-point lead before suffering the recovery of the team from Brianza, which unlocks the score. The balance is not broken in the second set, where the head-to-head ends in favor of Monza on 28-26. Back on the field, the opponents dig a difficult furrow to fill and despite the attempted reaction, coach Marconi’s boys do not reopen the challenge. Three players in double figures: Massafeli, yellow and blue best scorer with 14 points, Signorini (12) and Bonisoli (11). Three walls, however, for Mezzani.
CUCINE LUBE CIVITANOVA – VERONA VOLLEYBALL 3-1 (25-15; 19-25; 25-18; 25-17)
In the second outing, the Verona troop tries to keep up with the landlords of Civitanova, however leaving the field empty-handed. La Lube started strong and won the first fraction without great difficulty, but Verona’s response was immediate and thanks to an excellent collective reaction they brought the score back to level. Marconi’s boys try to give continuity to the game expressed, but the cooks take back the reins of the match and go back on, before putting the seal on the match in the fourth set. Among the Gialloblù ranks Bonisoli stood out once again, free for the first team and author of 13 points, one more than Guardavascio (12 with two blocks) and two more than Signorini. Six, however, the overall aces.
