Volleyball In Piedmont Fiorentini is the Under 16 Italian Champion

ROME- A deserved tricolor, won with head, heart and determination, at the end of a beautiful final against the Roman Volleyrò Casal de ‘Pazzi who surrendered in the fourth set, after more than two hours of play and show at the Palazzo dello Sport in Rome ( Eur). The women’s Under 16 tricolor final did not disappoint, rewarding In Volley Piemonte Fiorentini, a team that hasn’t lost in 75 games between Under 15 and Under 16 and that in this long two-year period has left the opponents only 16 sets. winning both league titles (2021 and 2022) with the same roster. The reigning Under 17 Italian champion against the one that triumphed in the Under 15 last season: the final act of the FIPAV Lazio and FIPAV Roma event, with the support of the Lazio Region, Roma Capitale and Metropolitan City , and with the partnership of Coldiretti Roma and Checco dello Scapicollo, it could only be a wonderful sporting showdown between two of the best women’s volleyball clubs in Italy. And the show was not lacking, on the pitch and in the stands with 3,000 spectators present.

For the final championship coach Pilieci fielded Volleyrò with Allaoui on the dribble, Farelli on the diagonal, Camerini and Esposito in the band, Franceschini and Sawa in the center and with Bonafede and Ribechi alternating in the free role. The start, after a substantial balance at least until 7-7, is however a strong Piedmontese traction. In Volley he immediately tries to impose his own pace on the match and succeeds thanks to the excellent verve of Cantoni in the direction and then of the opposite Vighetto, of the spikers Buffone, Bonitempo and Prekducaj, of Molino in the center and of Mangalagiu in the role of free. The biancoblù volleyball is so advanced that the players on the field are interchangeable and often find themselves helping each other; as happens at the point of 16-21 which marks the turning point for Trinchero’s formation and allows Buffone and his companions to set sail. Also in the second set, the reigning Under 15 Italian champions impress their mark on the progress of the match, leading the set from start to finish. Prekducaj is impregnable, Buffone doesn’t miss a shot and the setter Cantoni always manages to find the right plays. Volleyrò’s reaction comes only in the final, but it is late and does not reverse the inertia of a match that goes 0-2 in favor of Piedmont. In the third set the Romans immediately move forward: the girls from Pilieci accelerate and earn +5 in peace of mind (21-16) which allows them to close the game at 25-17. It is a completely renewed Volleyrò that continues to press on the accelerator, also thanks to the newfound Del Freo who changes the face of his team from the bench. Leading on 22-17, however, Casal de ‘Pazzi gives up and undergoes a sensational comeback that allows the championship to take the highway towards Chieri after the advantages (24-26).

The champion team of Italy was awarded by the federal vice-president Luciano Cecchi and by the councilor for Sport and Major Events in Rome, Alessandro Onorato, who congratulated all the teams talking about this event as “the example of what Rome wants to be: the city of sport and national and international events“.
