Calcio San Marino, Cosmos and Tre Penne do not give up the upper floors of the standings
Championship: tussle at the back, Cosmos and Tre Penne make no mistake at the top.
There is no shortage of goals in the advances of the 17th day of the San Marino Championship BKN301, which gives sixteen goals spread over today’s four matches. Wide victories for the Serravallese Cosmos and Juvenes-Dogana, which – at different heights of the ranking – forfeit three heavy points. Predictions are those of Berardi’s boys, today replaced on the bench by De Rosa, who also run a big risk at the start. Maggioli was decisive in both areas: in the 4th minute the save on the line by Angelini, following a corner – on which I continue Strologo misses a tap-in with empty door. After Errico and Prandelli’s unsuccessful attempts, Bruma severely engages Simoncini on 21′ from the edge. As anticipated, it was Maggioli who broke the levee, good at arriving first on the rebound of a corner kick and beating De Angelis with a decisive deflection from Giuliano. The goal shuts down San Giovanni and mentally unlocks Cosmos, who doubles again from the flag: Prandelli’s early punch, who rises to 11 goals in the league. In the second half, the yellow-greens settled the score in the 51st minute with Zulli’s surgical right-footed volley, while a little later Guidi replaced the rearguard of the San Giovanni, involuntarily denying Prandelli the brace. Not bad for the Cosmos, which drops the 86′ poker involving two substitutes: Savelli jumped Serafini with a pinch of luck, serving Righini a golden ball which – despite his teammate’s dirty right foot – fixed the final 4-0 from a short distance.
At the Ezio Conti di Dogana, in the 18:00 challenge, the Tre Penne replies present. Ceci’s men mortgaged success in just over a quarter of an hour, just enough for Badalassi and Gai to puncture Benedettini, alternating in assisting their teammate. The bomber begins, three times league top scorer with as many career shirts, who collects the ball in trailer of Gai to pierce the Cailungo goalkeeper from the heart of the penalty area. From rubbing your eyes the action that leads to doubling: Righini verticalizes for Gai, who finds Badalassi with his heel, quick to unload first for the captain who releases a right from 25 meters which goes off at the crossroads. Cailungo replies on the Apezteguia-Canini axis in the end of the fraction, but the young striker accuses grip problems in front of Migani after passing elegantly between Tisselli and Lombardi.
At the start of the second half Gai doesn’t get an encore with his left foot, while Giangrandi’s semi-overturned post is canceled out by a previous foul. Cailungo then protests for a contact between Bara and Tisselli in the middle of the penalty area, but Borriello lets play. The Rossoverdi have a completely different attitude and come close to the net with Canini from the edge, in the 58th minute. Throwing water on the fire is the usual Nicola Gaithat shortly after game time collects Ceccaroli’s assist to cross from inside the area. The Biancazzurri trio closes the match prematurely and from there to the end only the unsuccessful attempts of Badalassi, Righini and Giovagnoli stand out – the latter both from a set and from a personal action. The last shot on goal is always by Gai, who is denied the hat-trick by Benedettini’s great leap.
On the Domagnano-Acquaviva route, however, they took place today two games of capital importance for access to the play-off area. Starting from the direct clash between Juvenes-Dogana and Domagnano, which sanctioned the 3-1 success of Amati’s men – replaced on the bench by Girotti due to disqualification. After a couple of attempts each by Fedeli and Salvemini, the Biancorossazzurri took the lead with acute ninth in Davide Merli’s championship – lucky to find Morena’s decisive detour to displace Colonna. Domagnano must surrender to a giant Gentilini, while on the opposite side Juvenes-Dogana protests for a potential sorry at 25′. Ilie lets it go, arriving in the other area on 38′, when Ceccaroli complains about a “hands” from Santi. Sensational, a little later, the opportunity for Cangini who is on the developments of a corner kick and shaves the far post. After the break, a quarter of an hour without chances anticipates a lively finale to say the least. In the 62nd minute the clash in the area between Angelini and D’Angeli leads to a penalty kick for Domagnano: on the disk Fedeli, who must surrender to the extraordinary reflection of Gentilini. Merli, in the 70th minute, does not end the match on the counterattack, even though he also dribbles past the goalkeeper: the save is monumental in extremis by Baffoni. Hands in hair for the Biancorossazzurri who sweat cold on Angelini’s deflected left foot in the 76th minute. To drive away the ghosts of a failure is Salvemini, author of the doubling seconds later. Providential, but not definitive: a little later, in fact, The Domagnano is back on track with Fedeli. The attacker beat Gentilini with a precise right foot and gave the Giallorossi ten minutes of hope, who savor the clamorous equalizer from the right from the edge of Battistani – just a hair’s breadth away. He hits the mirror and especially the corner to the right of Colonna, the broadsided by Giacomo Borghini’s 25 meters which closes the accounts and gives a very important victory to Juvenes-Dogana. The Biancorossazzurri return to success after four consecutive defeats and add the overtaking in the standings, relegating Domagnano again to the penultimate place in the rankings – which would mean exclusion from the play-offs.
Which today would also be the turn of the Muratahow pure ah broke a long fast from victories beating Pennarossa at the end of an incredible challenge. A great Mattia Stefanelli is not enough for the Biancorossi to keep away from the quicksand of the race for twelfth place. Murata, after just 20 “, nearly took the lead with Ura – after a lightness in the construction of Michelotti. On the opposite front, Stefanelli and Zago didn’t worry the former Gueye, decisive on Cecchetti on the half hour. Even amazing on the right from the edge of Stefanelli in the 38th minute, he has to capitulate on the developments of the next corner. Murata doesn’t notice Cecchetti who breaks into the area and serves Stefanelli, able to disengage from the marking to unlock the result. The San Marino striker came close to scoring twice before the break, but Gueye was extraordinary. Duel that is renewed at the start of the second half, but from eleven meters: Stefanelli wins a penalty on Costantini and doesn’t miss from the penalty spot, climbing into double figures of goals. Murata leaves all consideration aside and pours forward, becoming dangerous with Gega and reopening the game at game time. With the complicity of Mezzadri, who loses the ball outgoing and allows Comuniello to pocket for Ferraro. Specify the assistance to the centre-area for Touch them that he just has to worry about hitting the door. The episode overturns the inertia on the pitch and Pennarossa accuses the blow: Semprini nearly equalizes in the 71st minute on a suggestion from Comuniello, while Cecchetti curses fate on the opposite front – where the crossbar saves Murata. An unequivocal signal for a throbbing finale, with Pennarossa unable to close it and sensationally overturned. Zago spoils and Ferraro has to surrender to the reflection of Benedettini, prodigious in the 83rd minute but impotent – a minute later – on Murata’s aggressive maneuver that equalizes the score with Gega. After 30”, Zago eats up Pennarossa’s new advantage in front of Gueye, while on the opposite side Dulcetti shoots centrally from a good position. Very long teams, with Murata looking for the three points without worrying about a possible defeat and a Pennarossa in reserve, but with a lot of space available. To pay dividends, the choice of Angelini who – together with his staff – lets himself go to thepitch invasion when in the 90th minute Raul Ura pulled the rabbit out of the hat, inventing a right-footed shot that dusts the farthest corner of the posts and allows Murata to come back from 0-2 to 3-2 in the final half hour, drawing liberally from the bench where two assists came from. The delay from third place is now 4 points for Murata, who hopes to have found the victory capable of giving a turning point to an entire season. Of course, it breaks a negative period made up of eleven defeats and only one draw. In the coming weeks, two direct clashes to be played with a knife between the teeth for the black and whites.
