Hafro Cortina, in Lustenau in search of continuity

by admin

The recent successes on Vienna and Renon have improved the ranking but now we need to hit a row to cultivate ambitions


A victory to give continuity, a victory to take another step forward in the standings. The insidious away match at Lustenau could be the definitive turning point in a fluctuating first part of the season. Cortina is well aware of this, and at 7.30 pm faces the well-equipped Austrian team with the desire to take home the three points and return to the top of the Alps ranking.


In the last 4 appearances the Ampezzo players have suffered only one defeat, of measure at Asiago. A knockout immediately forgotten thanks to the victories with Vienna and Renon. The latter, obtained on Thursday evening at the Olimpico, has a high specific weight. The Hafro has finally shown that it can compete with the best and has also achieved a fundamental success in the race for the final four of the Italian championship. «We got a nice victory, albeit a painful one, against a great team», comments the defender Michael Zanatta, «we must not forget that we had important absences and a reduced roster. We must be proud of the race we have done: these three points taken against a big team must give us energy for the next matches, but above all awareness of our means ».


Today the squirrels face Lustenau, fourth force with 20 points in 11 games. The Austrians, who lost 5-2 against Vipiteno on Thursday, can count on very strong foreigners including the former Cortina Giftopoulos. «It will be a difficult match», explains Zanatta, «Lustenau is a team that is very much based on individuality, exploiting the quality and technique of foreigners. We don’t have to take many penalties and always be attentive and concentrated ».

Despite the victory, on Thursday Cortina found themselves in difficulty, especially in defense, given the absences. On the roster there is still a place free for a foreigner and the company would seem to be looking for an experienced defender. «The roster is certainly shorter than last year», Zanatta confirms, «but a graft could help only if a competitive and quality player is purchased, who wants to play in Cortina. In the meantime, we want to start winning all the games at home, and then try to do well on the road and collect as much as possible away from the Olimpico ». –
