Up to the 5th inning the game remained in equilibrium, until the yellow-green were able to accelerate to 8th on 6 to 2. At this point the lack of pitchers put the Pontine defense in crisis, which surrendered. in the 9th inning for 13 to 3.
“It was an environmentally very difficult match due to the great heat – declared the manager Carletti – In addition, the absences of Michele Carletti and Pepponi forced several of our players to play out of position. Despite this we won and we managed to get everyone to play. Excellent debut of Giacomo Agostini in third base, which guarantees us an additional solution “.
