VILLA CORTESE prolongs its European dream
2012 CEV Volleyball Champions League - Women

Castellanza, Italy, February 23, 2012. MC-Carnaghi VILLA CORTESE claimed tonight the much awaited derby scheduled for the 1/4 finals of the 2012 CEV Volleyball Champions League by edging Volley BERGAMO 3:1 (21-25, 25-15, 25-20, 25-19), thus taking its revenge for the defeat suffered only last week in Italy’s Supercup.
The former European queens of Volley BERGAMO immediately took control of the operations by combining strong serving and solid attacks with Elitsa Vasileva and Iuliana Nucu contributing the final 21-25. VILLA CORTESE reacted in the second set where head coach Marcello Abbondanza confirmed his initial starting six that included also 18-year old Caterina Bosetti, the MVP from the 2011 FIVB Junior World Championship held this past summer in Peru. Bosetti teamed up with the more experienced Martina Guiggi and Makare Wilson to anchor her side to an extremely important 3:1 home win. “After losing the last three matches in domestic competitions we wanted to deliver a good performance tonight to clear up our minds. We played with glowing hearts and I think we also displayed some excellent team work. I am more than happy with the result” said Bosetti after the game.  
“I hope that with this victory we can get back some self-confidence. We want to continue our dream in this year’s Champions League and Baku is our final destination. We know that it is still a long way to the final four because Volley BERGAMO is a side that always fights until the very end” singled out the home mentor Abbondanza.
