Györ, Hungary. July 28 2017. Italy cruised to a comfortable 3-0 (25-20, 25-22, 29-27) straight victory over Russia in semis of the 2017 Women’s European Youth Olympic Festival. Italy scored three sets of their own, but Russia fell short of scoring a bonus-point try, although they showed plenty of heart in playing hard right up to the final whistle. However, Italy started to enjoy more territory and possession as Russia were forced to make plenty of mistakes in their own half. Alessia Populini was eventually rewarded for her hard work to score the top 21 points. Russian Valeriya Shevchuk danced her way over for a superb individual try to score 13 points.

In the 3rd place match, Russia will play with Serbia on July 29 at 14:10 local time.
