AFTER a run of three-set victories, it was probably a good thing for Arona Tenerife Sur to be stretched, for a 3-2 home win over Cajasol Juvasa Volley.
It didn’t stop the upward march of the Los Cristianos-based team, who now sit fourth in Spain’s Superliga.
The opening set was a tough, even affair, with Arona taking it 26-24. That was followed by a 25-16 advantage, a 25-23 reversal, and a 25-21 leveller, to set up the deciding set. It was a tense finish, with Arona shading it 15-13.
Some league teams rely on a couple of big guns to lead the way, but Arona coach Romina Lamas has a solid squad. Nira Perez is ninth in the scoring stats, with team-mate Orina Diaz just three places behind.
Tomorrow (Saturday), Arona travel to the mainland to play Rioja Volley, and, as always, they are confident of adding more momentum to their impressive season.
