San Lorenzo beat Estudiantes
Former champions San Lorenzo are in third place after beating Estudiantes de La Plata 3-0( 25-20, 28-26, 25-22).
Estudiantes’ outside hitter Valentina Paredes made an error which sealed the first set for San Lorenzo after a long rally.
Cossar and Agustina Romeo with four and two kills respectively put Estudiantes on the brink of the second set.
However, a great reaction from San Lorenzo after three substitutions altered the course of the set and they stole the second set to go 2-0 up.
There were some nerves towards the end of the third set but San Lorenzo eventually pulled through to move just three points off the top with a game in hand.
¡Tremendo triunfo de @CASLAVoley!
Las Matadoras tuvieron algunos altibajos pero supieron imponer su poderío para derrotar en sets corridos a Estudiantes, que no pudo aprovechar sus oportunidades de meterse en partido.
