From rags to riches, all in forty actual heart-pounding minutes. Ready-off on Montesilvano goes down 2-0 at Falconara in race-3 of the Finals femminili. But that one-two doesn’t knock the Santangelo girls down. Who get up with their legs and head on their shoulders, reassembling the Italian Cup champions and beating them 3-2 (the same result from race-1) with an authentic masterpiece live on TV on Rai Sport + HD. Three, the perfect number: like the league titles in the history of the Pescara club.
START CHOC at the PalaBadiali. Pato Dal’Maz, in the wake of a game-2 marked by goals and magic, sets out on his own and with a bet that hits the crossbar before entering the net breaks the balance. Santangelo’s response is surprising: immediately 5vs4 with Bruna Borges goalkeeper of movement. The City of Falconara does not miss the very risky move of the Citizens, transforming it into a great opportunity: it closes all the gates and with Taty takes advantage of the unguarded door to sign the 2-0. Montesilvano struggles to get out of those four nightmarish minutes, but he still manages to do it as the minutes go by. A header from Xhaxho threatens to reopen the final in the first half, Bruna Borges, later elected MVP, hits the crossbar, but is 2-0 at half-time.
OF CHOC IN CHOC even in the recovery. Montesilvano scores two goals in nine seconds: the first is a feat of Alessia Guidotti. Who uproots the ball from Marta and strikes Dibiase from outside the area, the equal is a powerful and precise right-footed Xhaxho. The game always remains beautiful: Sestari prevents Taty from giving an encore, Dibiase says no to Ortega. But Montesilvano’s goal is only postponed, D’Incecco scores with a touch from two steps. The packed PalaBadiali fell silent, Montesilvano was granite, holed up in defense and held up the fort even when Nona was deployed as a goalkeeper. Stronger than absences, very heavy (Amparo and Jessika), stronger than all.
