New enterprise of the guys of Coach Covili who for the third consecutive time take home the title and make history
SIENA. Another feat of the Coach COVILI guys who at the weekend in Rimini conquered the third consecutive Italian championship at the final sixteen at the end of 4 races in three days from inside or outside. Thursday 65-50 victory against Turin, Friday 67-63 against the very strong Udine, Saturday against the young Milanese of the green area for 65-48 and in the final against Leoniana Monza, a team that makes the double championship of Lombard and amateur Serie D for 59-55.
The final was an authentic battle always played on a tightrope with La balzana who arrived with a few too many ailments. especially at the external level with the Play Tinti on the scoresheet despite a contracture, Collet who after 5 minutes of competition remedies a strong ankle sprain but stoically returns to the last quarter to be the director of an epilogue with a happy ending as is always happening in the last 3 and a half years and the last available Battente who in an involuntary game clash fractures the metacarpal of his right hand in the second quarter.
Despite everything at the interval along the Balzana he is ahead 37-28. The Lombards do not give up and in the third quarter they approach point by point up to go ahead 49-42 in the last quarter with 6 minutes from the end thanks to a super defense, to the solutions in attack from the middle distance and to the imposing physical presence near the basket . At this point Covili decides to try everything out by putting Collet back on the field assisted by the experience of Giannini under the planks and Mancini from the arch, together with the young Mocenni and Gabbrielli, overturning the fate of the race that seemed already written with a partial 17-6 which gives another Italian title to the Sienese team of patron Ghini and the ninth consecutive title in almost 4 years to Coach Covili who once again proved to be a motivator for his boys and a father for the young people who have joined in the last two editions and also very good at always finding the right solutions based on the progress of the matches and the teams he has faced.
The hope of the company of Captain Maffia, which has been able to establish a fruitful relationship of collaboration with Cus Siena, integrating some university students in the roster, is that this tradition of winning continues but above all the primary objective is to create aggregation respect union between all its members. on and off the pitch in the spirit of teaching sporting and human values.
