Trentino blank Panasonic 15-0 in blocks


Trentino scored 15 blocks against Panasonic

Betim, Brazil, October 18, 2013 – The 15 blocks recorded by his team in a three set match left Trentino’s coach Roberto Serniotti quite impressed as his club blanked Japan’s Panasonic Panthers in the defensive battle at the net.

Emanuele Birarelli, captain of Trentino Diatec: We are happy because we reach our first goal of entering the semifinals. Our team is young a new team so we are satisfied. We blocked and attacked well and that was the difference.

Kenji Shirasawa, captain of Panasonic Panthers: I am very sorry about losing because our hope was to be in the semifinals. The Italian team is a strong one and played a very good game tonight.

Roberto Serniotti, coach of Trentino Diatec: I am happy with the 3-0 result because we have a tough game tomorrow so it was better for us to play just three sets. To score 15 blocks in a three-set match is impressive. It is a good experience for our team. Tomorrow we have a tough match.

Masashi Nambu, coach of Panasonic Panthers: It is the first time we play against an Italian team. They played great defense with a strong blocking game. I am quite impressed with their skills and we will take this as a learning experience for the future. I wish the best of luck to Trentino and hope they can again become champions.
