Bad day for the San Marino Academy, which runs into the third defeat of the season, the second in a row and the first within the friendly walls, in comparison with the Como Women of the former Di Luzio, Rigaglia, Beil and Salvi. The Academy drew to the extent of Fusar Poli, from the Larian player pool, while a past in Como 2000 – although there are no direct links with today’s opponent – Martina Piazza and Brambilla also have it.
There is Kiamou in defense from the first minute and Bertolotti in the middle of the field. Up front, the choice to join Barbieri falls on Baldini, making his debut as a starter as the Greek central. The first half is perhaps the least attractive that has ever been played in Acquaviva, in the women’s field, since the inauguration of the plant in January 2019. Both teams are struggling to keep the ball on the ground, missing many passes – especially the Titans – in restart phase. A contracted first fraction comes out, with many yellow cards (4) and loud yawns. Mariani’s header at 18 ‘and the unrealistic conclusion of Fusar Poli did not warm up the audience, who jumped shortly after half an hour when Di Luzio isolates himself on Kiamou and – after having jumped it in good style – serves in the center Rigaglia, in advance of the lower exit of Piazza which still has the merit of deflecting the ball miraculously. On the continuation of the action, perhaps even Piazza, certainly Venturini, unravel the skein in the San Marino area. On the opposite front it is Menin who plays the charge: his descent into the lane, with opponents sown and a grazing cross on the near post for Baldini who is anticipated by Captain Rizzon on the most beautiful. The first half goes to archive with Marrone’s injury, after a hard blow suffered by Hilaj: the fluidifying of Recent tries to grit her teeth, but is forced to forfeit before reporting the recovery.
In his place Massa for a second half which many hoped to be different from the first fraction and which, at least for the first ten, recited the same score instead. Few shots and an immediate yellow to Menin. The Larians try to do it first, with Rigaglia trying to punish a short postponement from Piazza, but the end of the house neutralizes in two stages. Como protests at 56 ‘: on the development of the most beautiful action of the match, the guests go in goal with Picchi, down in the contrast with Mancini who lets play. The feeling is that the Como complaints have excellent arguments. On the continuation of the action Kubassova tries, but without precision. The replica of the Academy is entrusted to Bertolotti, who comes to close one of the rare actions in which Barbieri managed to turn around and play. Good protection with Brambilla, for a left-handed from a distance that Salvi grabs in a dive.
The challenge seems to be able to take off and in fact comes on in the last 25 minutes. Like a bolt from the blue, the Academy finds the advantage with the first real conclusion of the day: If not the most important goal for the captain, who scored the first white and blue goal in both Serie A and Serie B, certainly one of the most beautiful. But with a bitter aftertaste: Como, in fact, drew almost immediately with Carravetta, thrown into the fray seven minutes earlier by Sebastian de La Fuente. Robbery goal for the 19-year-old striker, who uses a bank of Kubassova on the development of an inactive ball to pierce Piazza from two steps.
