DUBAI: Italian Tommaso Guzzo came up with a man of the match performance to power The Emperor to a smooth 3-0 win over Al Jawareh to clinch third place in the volleyball tournament at the 11th Nad Al Sheba Sports Tournament at a packed Nad Al Sheba Sports Complex, late on Saturday.

Guzzo's 20 individual points was the standout moment even as teammate Luca Purro came in handy with his contribution of 14 points as The Emperor sailed past Al Jawareh 25-22, 25-23, 25-23 in a close fight for third place.

The 197 cm tall Guzzo, who will turn 22 on April 30, plays either as outside spiker or opposite for his team Pallavolo Padova in Italy.

Al Jawareh tried their best, but found the defence from The Emperor too hot to handle. Jordi Ramon and Michael Czerwinski contributed with 16 and 12 points respectively, but still ended up on the losing side.

The Emperor had surrendered to Zabeel 2 3-0, while Al Jawareh had fought well in a 3-2 loss against Fohood Zabeel in the two semi-finals earlier during the week.

Hassan Al Mazrouei, Tournament Director of the Nad Al Sheba Sports Tournament was joined by Adil Al Bannai from the organizing committee in honouring the winners of the third-placed team in the presence of members of the steering committee and course coordinators.
