Victory of authority for the Genoese of Locatelli in the derby among the youngest teams of the championship (well 8 summoned to the collegiate of the National under 16, equally divided), with Carbone’s team that takes about a time and a half to literally shake off the pressing euganean opponents who field a great aggressiveness, but, taken the measures, and supported by Asia Avenoso who looms among the goalposts keeping the goal untouched for just under twenty minutes, the otters inexorably affirms the advantage from +3 half race at the final +9 of a 4-13 all too eloquent.
First time in which it is the to start better, also thanks to so much imprecision of the Ligurians in the closing phase, so to the initial network in Ravenna the Venetians of Sara Ciocci respond with Delli Gloves from the pole in numerical superiority and Francesca Bozzolan and only thanks to the newfound Caterina Nucifora Locatelli finds equal a couple of minutes before the first interval. In the second fraction the Genoese try to “escape” twice, respectively with Irene Rossi and Arianna Banchi, but are caught twice, dafini in superiority for the 3-3 and from Bacelle with a nice volley for the 4-4. From this moment, however, Locatelli Genova takes the chair and the next 9 goals will all be colored white and red and blue. In the second half the otters in fact manage to break away with a brace from Vittoria Ravenna and with the goal of a very concentrated Irene Rossi presenting at the beginning of the third fraction with a reassuring +3 (4-7), which is increased only by a penalty from Lele Bianco in the third, Pozzani in fact has a great acute parrying a penalty in Ravenna at the end of the time, but the girls of Carbone in this fraction are exalted above all in the back phase, defending perfectly, with Asia Avenoso annihilating the forward opponents, and passing unscathed from five consecutive red cards. Then the opponents who are deprived of some key athletes burdened with three fouls, lower the flag during the fourth time, in which Locatelli, who for most of the lineup is a baby formation, scores five consecutive goals with Lele Bianco than with others two scores opens and closes the series: in the middle Rossi, Ravenna and a great goal from the center of the 2007 Nausica especially in Magaglio, at the baptism of the goal in Serie A.
All in all a painless defeat for the patavine, and an essential victory for LOcatelli Genova, now awaited by a terrible series of matches that will open next Sunday in Rapallo (3.30 pm), immediately followed by the national under 20 semifinal, in which Locatelli Genoa presents itself as a regional champion and will compete with Como, Verona and Rome Vis Nova.
In the other matches of the weekend a bad setback for the men’s Serie B in Perugia (8-4), an amazing third place (out of 8 teams) for our under 13 in the Sciorba tournament won by the SCQuinto, a tournament in which we were the only club to field also girls and just one of them, Margherita Minuto, won both the award as top scorer, and the one as the best player of the tournament, and a feat of the Under 18 and in emergency training the Lerici on the draw (11 – 11) in a game in which the great sportsmanship of the crocodile technician, Andrea Sellaroli, makes the news.
Comment by Locatelli Genova coach, Stefano Carbone. “The girls were goodnot to be discouraged by their initial imprecision and by an aggressive game itself that I find paradoxical even rewarded by those who should crush without voting. That said more than anything else I would like to dedicate space and victory to my two illustrious colleagues, to Stefano “Tete” Pozzi who announced that he wanted to leave waterpolo, which makes me feel a little older and much sadder, and to Andrea Sellaroli, who in the men’s under 18 match that saw him as our opponent he did something so big that I hope that these few words of mine can be collected by someone who acts as a sounding board for this life and sport lesson that Andrea has given to all of us, first his lucky students: in a match that could be decisive for them to qualify, when our boys and his opponents, presented themselves in emergency formation and decimated by the definitive expulsions for having reached the number of fouls, remained in six, Andrea has removed a player, already very beautiful act, since the game was in balance and in fact ended in a draw, but in this case far beyond the beautiful, the honorable, the sportsman: Sellaro in fact, he put at risk the same qualification for the national stage, preferring not to take advantage of an unfortunate contingency for the opponent that would have led him to easily win the match, but transmitting something much more important to all present. In a normal world, perhaps it would be a normal gesture. In 2022, I believe they should also speak on Sunday Sport. Heartfelt thanks Andrea, for this great teaching “.
