Sunday 17 February 2019. Qualified in fourth place in Group C of the First Phase, beating the competition Vis 2008 Ferrara and Route64Basketball Minerbio, the Under 13 Elite They began the Second Phase, placed in Group Blue with Diablos Sant'Agata, Ca 'Ossi Forlì and Basketball San Giorgio di Piano. A qualification is not obvious, counts as the first seasonal goal achieved for the group. Bello there, in refereed by race "father & son" A. e D. bigot.
This award is the logical consequence of "recovery" which took place from the second half of January onwards, character on the floor before physical, since the rotations have remained very limited: both in the house with Stars and Virtus and finally in the field of Pontevecchio, where "Oranges" hanno avuto in mano per due volte il tiro del pareggio dopo una partita giocata faccia a faccia, boys INVICTUS Academy They have managed to "align" the progress shown by our other three groups.
First stop in Sant'Agata, therefore. First place in their group, and a player on all, the #4 Baruffaldi, to stand out for physical and technical qualities, long on which the Diablos support all the balls, but also capable of running the dribble and score from the arc. The proof is that, on 64 points scored by the team, he will realize 38... The same all "Oranges", alone. That's why the -26 finale non rende completamente giustizia alla reazione comunque dimostrata dai ragazzi di Marco Pappalardo.
That there was, regardless of the final result. The also say the partial of the four periods: after 23-10 initial, we drew the second quarter tightening their defense (10-10), and after the boarded the third quarter (24-6), we started to defend, winning the last quarter for 7-9. The key, in conclusion, it's this one. Starting from the defense, then to find belief in attack and avoid disunite. Without worrying about the comparisons impossible today with some top level opponents.
Check with excellent Alessandro Zanfanti, max Frasca, Marco De Luca, Luca Di Pace e Pierfrancesco Pucci, they can "to the wall" most dangerous adversary, forcing two errors from the field (plus two from the line), and they try to escape with a triple from Pierre, the canister incoming Luca and the one with tack But, 7 a 0! But a missed produces the opponent off guard, Baruffaldi scores from underneath and, after the basket on rebound Pietro Barbieri for the +5 of the 4-9, the show begins.
That will produce more 13 personal points, in addition to two baskets of the companions, allowing to equalize Diablos, before, and fly away, then, closing the first quarter at +10 of the 23-13, despite all attempts of "Oranges" to stop him, send him to the line, or otherwise replicate, with twice -2 conquered by Gregory Manfredini - to return to Championship, after the fracture to the arm - attacking the basket and stuffs 2/2 from the line (13-11) e Luca which marks from six meters (15-13).
Uphill road, then, but "Oranges" cling to the words of Coach, and return to the field proving ready to fight. It will be released by a second fourth defensive 10 granted only points, which it produces that energy necessary for equally segnarne 10 in attack, and then a parity that, in fact, is a victory compared to -10 the fourth. Inside Filippo Garuti, max Frasca, Samuel Sarti, Stefano Lelli e Pierfrancesco Pucci. The rest, in flash.
Immediately triple Pierre, field goal offensive rebound Filippo on a good shot from the arc of Sam, He defends strong and pass the ball well. Each water port, Steve It gives everything and is then changed from Marco, we traced to -5 and we remain there for several minutes. It will be once again the long opponent to score two baskets in a row, extending to +9, then comes the +11 from the line, ma Luca He responds with an entry in speed, 29-20. E Marco even score the basket of -7, 29-22 a 3'25".
We know it will be tough, but it no longer seems impossible. Opponents punish any negligence, They are shown in +9, but we continue to defend the most, team. But marks the Free -8 a 56", Baruffaldi takes a bounce "on the head" our tallest player and puts in, It ends on 33-23, same points scored and conceded in the fourth, which means having "liable", after and the possibility, as pointed out by the coach in the locker room, to try, with the same charge and grit.
Unfortunately, in the third quarter despite the desire to try, the result will not come. Rather, the Diablos will produce with merit from a partial 24-6, with Baruffaldi to score immediately from below and also from the arc, immediately bringing her to +15 (38-23), Pierre reply from six meters, but a break 11-0 for hosts, until the +24 of the 49-25. They will be Greg e Pierre the only ones to score, twice breaking the fast. Despite the -28 of the 57-29, however, we continue to play.
Here, the difference compared to the past, as recently. Confirming the good responses in three games, as we did not give more until a month ago. Rather, we return to the field on top in the last quarter, Marco suffered attacks the basket and score two free, the #4 opponent must invent an arrest and shooting impossible from the arc of the three points at the end of 24", very good him, ma Steve He jumps in and throws in, e Luca marks undergoing the foul. We exist, let's play.
And we will continue to do so until the last, taking away the satisfaction of winning the fourth period for the partial 7-9. Perhaps small, for those who see it from outside, but actually huge, for those who live from inside. Change everything. a ultimil'ultimosappiamo che cose divario e subendo fallo a poco più di un minuto dalla completamente, perspective. They will arrive a free Luca, the comeback after a long absence due to illness Loren Logozzo (welcome back!), conquering rebounds, un'entratona of But. It ends on 64 a 38, but in the meantime we.
