The legend continues. There is nothing that can stop the Prosecco Doc Imoco Conegliano, even when things look bad. Yes, because this Vero Volley Milano, even in this match 5, really put fear in the audience of a PalaVerde full to the brim for almost two sets, but in the end it had to yield.
Santarelli’s team, with the 3-1 win over the Lombardy team, was reconfirmed as Italian champions for the fifth consecutive season, despite the summer revolution having led to fears to the contrary.
It was, as expected, a difficult match for the panthers, who lost the first set and then pulled off a rather difficult comeback in the second, thanks also to the so-called long bench (the contribution of Alexa Gray was decisive in this case, and she will be judged MVP with 25 points, 2 walls, 1 ace and 65% in attack. All in just three sets played). From there it was practically a monologue, and the title was once again stopped in the land of Prosecco.
Thus ended an absolutely positive season for President Garbellotto’s club, which, despite the aforementioned difficulties, was able to win four trophies: in addition to the Scudetto, they also won the Supercup, Coppa Italia and the World Club Championship. Definitely not bad at all.
