It is the victory of character, of the desire to never give up, not to give up even when all seems lost. The Bakery chases for more than 37 minutes, gets caged by the host cobweb, goes down even by twelve lengths, seems to be one step away from the abyss but when he comes within an inch of collapsing he finds the right answers to close 71-68 at the photo finish, fly 2-0 in the series and treat yourself to an at least more peaceful trip to Senigallia, where the next two games will be played. At worst the series will be decided in Race 5 in Piacenza.
Passoni immediately enters the right atmosphere with an assist and a four-point game that brings the red and white to 8-6. As in Game 1, however, in Piacenza the foul problem arises very soon, with Del Re’s team going into the bonus when there are still 6′ of play left in the first fraction. Opponents start better under the basket, not only on defense but also on offense, and when they find the 14-8 the hosts have to stop the game. Effective stop as confirmed by the parity achieved thanks to a renewed presence in attack and a good defensive phase. But Senigallia doesn’t fit, he gets a couple of shots right from behind the arc and runs away again until 21-17 which closes the initial fraction with Piacenza struggling especially in the three-point shot.
Del Re’s team continues to suffer from greater static under the basket, but this time it is the hosts who force their opponents to the limit of fouls before halfway through, even if unfortunately they are unable to exploit the advantage. When Cecchetti with a Messi-style feint leaves his opponent in place and shoots for the basket the landlords go back 4 lengths away (24-28). But unlike Sunday’s match, the match never finds balance, with Senigallia always ahead and the Bakery chasing after. We go to the locker room with the visitors ahead 37-28 and the Piacenza still looking for the three-point shot never found during the first 20 minutes and the match report that scores a miserable 2 out of 12 from behind the arc.
