River had its revenge against the Youth's

Buenos Aires, Argentina, February 17, 2014 - At the opening date of a new weekend of the Argentine ACLAV A2 upgrading League, the Argentine Youth's faced a very hard match v River starting very bad but then getting into the match and fighting each ball. The final result was 3-1 (25-16, 25-14, 22-25 y 25-23. Jan Martinez-Felipe Benavidez topped the score with 19 and 18 points.

Even though in the first match between River and the Youth's, it was won by the young team on their goal of growing and winning experience in a competition for Seniors' teams, this time the host team showed a strong performance during the first two sets not allowing the youth's to react. The main goal of the youth's is to prepare themselves for the very demanding international season they will face this year, with the South American Championship (that qualifies for the World Championship 2015) as main aim.

The third set was a different story. The youth's steeped onto the field with another attitude and won the set. The fourth was very fought as the visiting team wanted to force a tie-breaker but River at the end could get the two point difference and close the match by the minimum difference 25-23.

This Sunday the youth's will face Club the Amigos, the other team they defeated on the second weekend of the competition.
