Ternana women, from Heaven to hell and back: big blow in San Marino
Suffering match for the red-and-greens, who arrived on the Titano decimated: 4-2 success but the team had two goals recovered
Ternana Women returns from San Marino with three golden points that end the first leg well, but with too many sufferings. At the Chiesanuova sports center it ends 4-2 for the red-and-greens who arrived on the Titano with just 16 outfield players and three goalkeepers – they had two goals replaced, before picking up the thread of the match.
Festival of the Authorities in the first half. Sensational and unfortunate that of the Titans in the 11th minute who carries Ternana forward: on Labate’s shot the ball hits the post and then on the neck of the outgoing goalkeeper Olivieri before entering the net. Red-green doubling in the 25th minute with Spyridonidou who scores 13 goals with an imperious header from free kick. The locals feel the pinch but find the 2-1 goal in turn from an own goal: Barbieri crosses towards goal, De Bona makes a phenomenal save but the ball remains there and in an attempt to drive it away Lombardo puts it in his own goal.
The San Marino team equalized in the 6th minute of the second half with a play by captain Yesica Menin: the ball bounced off the post before slipping into the net. However, Ternana regroups and manages to overturn the match. Fusar Poli takes the chair, great protagonist: first he scores the 2-3 by collecting a cross and hitting the net with a right footed volley, then he propitiates poker with a free-kick on which Massimino heads off for his sixth personal goal. Rossoverdi at -3 from the top, always occupied by Lazio.
