CIVIDAL. There is no going back, but it is still possible to decide the ending. With the victory on Tuesday Vigevano managed to equalize in the final series of the Serie B championship playoffs (1-1) and now the spotlight is on PalaBasletta. In fact, waiting for the Ueb Gesteco Cividale, there will be games three and four that will be played away on Friday at 9 pm and Sunday at 6 pm.
From what we have seen so far, the series is very balanced: if in race one the ducals had managed to dominate their opponents, in race two the men of coach Piazza managed to be more brilliant in key moments.
But the ducal performance was nevertheless up to par given the great recovery of a 15-0 run that had brought the guests to 20-33. For captain Chiera and his teammates now the game is getting tough but not impossible. It is true that Vigevano is a hot and difficult field to conquer, but it is equally true that both Desio in the quarterfinals and San Vendemiano in the semifinals managed to snatch a victory within the Lombard walls.
Therefore, we need to roll up our sleeves and be ready to continue dreaming of promotion to Serie A2. We will have to work on what worked less in these two races with the awareness of having all the credentials to be able to do it.
It will be necessary to believe in it from start to finish without falling into blackouts which at this point of the journey can be very expensive. The difference will then be the defense: the goal will be to make the Lombard attack work hard because if it lights up, especially from a long distance, it can become lethal. Furthermore, it will be necessary to go in search of continuity: in these first two matches the Ueb has always played like a rocket, only to suffer partial counterparts which in fact canceled all the good things of the beginning.
So it will be necessary to start strong, but to maintain energy, concentration and precision throughout the course of the race. «Vigevano was very good at staying there even when we went to 57-51 – comments the Ueb president. Davide Micalich at the end of race two -. Now let’s go to Vigevano with a smile because the series is still long and the team has the attributes to be able to fight until the end ».
