San Marino finished fourth in the league at home
Victory that gives hope, with a view to salvation, the one obtained this afternoon by the rosanero against an excellent San Marino. Good responses from the players trained by coach Antonella Licciardi who, despite the initial disadvantage, did not lose heart and took home 3 fundamental points considering also the defeat of Tavagnacco and the draw of Ravenna Women.
The guests in red suit take the lead after 11 minutes thanks to a well-aimed shot by Alessandra Massa on which Rosalia Pipitone can do nothing. The great heat conditions somewhat the game plots of San Marino, skilled in exploiting the game in the wings. Palermo tries to hit the restart and at the 24th obtained a free kick from a slightly secluded position. Marta Collovà shows up on the ball and invents a deadly trajectory that crosses the barrier and leaves no way out for the host goalkeeper. The first half ends on the result of 1 to 1.
In the second half it was Palermo who got the advantage thanks to a great action by Giada Ribellino, who in the end will be the best in the field: the result was overturned and the fans present in the stands of Carini’s Pasqualino Stadium were delighted.
A few minutes passed and the newly entered Raffaella Barbieri equalized bringing her personal score to 13. Open match to result. At the 79th comes the episode that will give the rosanero 3 points: the usual Rebellion is landed in the area by the San Marino goalkeeper, for the referee there is no doubt and assigns the penalty kick. From 11 meters Simona Zito makes no mistake and Palermo, thanks to a decisive intervention by Rosalia Pipitone, maintains the advantage until the final triple whistle.
Palermo rises to 17 points reaching the Pro Sesto Women and approaches Tavagnacco (at 26 points) 4 games from the end of the championship.
