Barueri, Brazil, October 7, 2020 – Before meeting in the semifinals of the 2020 Paulista Championship, Osasco Audax took on Sao Paulo Barueri at the conclusion of the preliminary round. Sao Paulo Barueri coach and three-time Olympic champion Jose Roberto Guimaraes and his players will need to find a way to stop Tandara Caixeta in the next stage of the competition.

With 26 points scored by the Brazil women’s national team star opposite, Osasco secured a 3-1 (25-20, 25-19, 21-25, 25-13) away victory at the Jose Correa arena in Barueri to complete the preliminary round ranked second, ahead of the home team. First-placed SESI Volei Bauru will take on fourth-seeded Pinheiros in the other semifinal series.

Tandara is back with Osasco for her fourth stint with the club after two years playing for different teams and has fully embraced her role as the team’s go-to offensive option. She scored in double digits in each of the four matches the team played in the preliminary round.

While Jaqueline Carvalho and Ana Beatriz Correa are both out, injured, Tandara got help from outside hitter Tainara Santos and middle blocker Mayany Souza, who scored 15 and 11 points respectively. Libero Camila Brait received the best player award in the match, which was decided by a vote by Osasco’s social media followers.

“I’m happy about the award, but even more about our victory,” the 31-year-old Brait said. “We’ll have a tough semifinal series against them in the next few days and will need to keep our good form.”

Opposite Lorrayna da Silva led Barueri’s scorers with 19 points, followed by outside hitter Karina Souza, who registered eight.

The Paulista Championship semifinals start on Saturday and each series will feature two matches. If necessary, a golden set will determine the teams qualified for the final.
