Civitanova Marche (Macerata), 21 January 2023

SuperLega, Trento conquers Civitanova and comes up besides Modena in 2nd place

Personality and determination. With these weapons Itas Trentino collected tonight, in the Marche region, the first victory in SuperLega Credem Banca  championship for the year 2023, also regaining identity and playing right at the climax of its entire regular season. The 3-1 win achieved today at the Eurosuole Forum in Civitanova Marche, in the early 16th round against the reigning Italian champions Cucine Lube, in fact allows the yellow-blue team to pull ahead precisely the hosts (now three points behind), temporarily coming up besides Modena in second place, significantly boosting their quotations in the rankings. In a historically antagonistic facility (two victories in twenty previous games), Lorenzetti's team returned tonight to express an impressive volley, which soon came up against the hosts, surprised every time at the beginning of the set by the incessant Trentino’s liveliness at the blocks (11 winners), at serve (as many) and especially in the  break point phase. Only in the second partial, won in a comeback (from 11-14 to 25-22), Cucine Lube managed to reply effectively; in the other three, however, Trento accomplished the game, already well begun in the first half, dragged by the attack squad: Lavia (17 points with 54% and three blocks), Michieletto (12 with three aces and two blocks) and especially Kaziyski. The captain scored 29 points with 52%, four blocks and two hit points, pushing his teammates whenever needed. The MVP award could only be his.
