  0 Carly DeMarque | October 24th, 2017 | Italian League, News, Pro Indoor

The second week of the Italian Men’s Superleague play has concluded with Sir Safety Conad Perugia and Azimut Modena sitting at the top of the rankings with six points after sweeping both of their opponents.

Cucine Lube Civitanova and Bunge Ravenna were unable to compete in their match due to an unforeseen illness from a fan that required immediate rescue and resuscitation maneuvers – the fan later had been reported to have died. The match was postponed due to the incident, not allowing the two squads to compete in their regularly scheduled meeting. The match has been rescheduled for November 22.
