THE PANTHERS COULDN'T BEAT CROATIA IN THE FIRST FRIENDLY MATCH IN NEUQUEN

This Saturday, the Panthers gave in to Croatia, who won 3-1 (25-23, 25-20, 22-25, 25-16) in the first friendly match in the Ruca Che stadium in the preparation stage of both teams heading to the FIVB Grand Prix that will take place next weekend in this same scenary together with Canada and Poland. About 3,000 spectators enjoyed the first performance of Guillermo Orduna's team in Neuquen.

In the first set the European team took advantage of a very tight development. Argentina had difficulties in reception in this initial stretch and Croatia made the difference through its attack with Katarina Luketic and Ema Strunjak. Both coaches took the opportunity to make changes and give time in the court to all their players.

In the second part the Europeans took more distance thanks to a better work in block and attack by its outside hitters, with much effectiveness of Lucija Mlinar. On the closure Argentina pressed with its service but couldn't revert the scoreboard.

In the third chapter The Panthers reacted by improving its block and reception, which allowed them to be more effective in attack. With good contributions of Lucia Fresco, Argentina finished by imposing 25-22. Finally, in the fourth, Croatia regained control before a team that was overwhelmed by the European effectiveness in block.

The Panthers will have their last preparatory friendly match next Monday at 10am in the Ruca Che stadium, in a free match with exclusive income for students of educational establishments. Then, on Friday, Saturday and Sunday Argentina will make its official presentation at the Grand Prix.
