#Superlega: Lube Civitanova evens the score. Perugia defeated in four sets in finals game 2!


Lube Civitanova take a victory after a terrible Game 1 to tie the series against Sir Safety Conad Perugia at 1-1, winning Game 2 of the 2018/19 Italian Superlega finals.
From the start of Game 2, Lube, third in the standings, showed determination to improve bad impression which they made in the opening match of the finals against the top seed. Led also by the sold-out Civitanova’s Eurosuole Forum, in front of 4,312 spectators, Lube won the first set but that’s when Perugia players pulled themselves together, tied at 1-1 and had +4 in the finish of the third set. However, Lube managed to win the match by a convincing 3-1.
