Expo Inox closes Gallarate’s bad evening by hooking Coelsanus in fifth place, 27 points from the Argentine
Gallarate’s bad evening is archived in a big way by a solid and mature Expo Inox Mortara that closes the first round of the first phase in the Green group of Serie C gold with a weighty victory over Coelsanus 7 Laghi Gazzada Schianno, thus reached in fifth place . Among the positive notes of the match, the return after several months of absence due to injury of Mattia Sacchi and the capital tests of Andrea Facchi and an authentic Franco Bazani MVP with 27 points, 11 rebounds and 7 assists.
The Expo Inox that approaches the match with Gazzada is back to being the fast and saucy one of a few weeks ago and of the recent home victory with Nerviano. It all starts from the defense that the Gialloblu surrounds the talented and experts from Varese whose powders, at least at the start, seem wet. Bazani is in great shape not only in terms of realization, but also in making the team play, Garcia takes advantage of every gap in the host defense and the ball is always in the hands of the boys of coach Alfonso Zanellati good at pushing up to 22-15, then Gazzada shortened time expired with two free even rather contested.
In the second period, Gazzada finds his shooting percentages and, especially in the central phase of this fraction, links a remarkable series of tracers from the bow. Here the Expo Inox has the merit of not being caught and always managing to find a good response (37-31), then in the final period still from the defense, but also rebound opportunities arise to stretch with Andrea Facchi to hit from out playing with authority and the others to be ready (41-33), with good yellow and blue management of the final period (46-37). Mortara reappears tonic from the locker room of the long break and signs a brilliant 9-2 at the start of the third quarter (55-39), but then has to deal with the return from Varese and with a flurry of calls for violation of steps against Bazani and Garcia , situations that facilitate the ascent of the guest. The Gialloblu try to resist (59-50), but in a final fraction with several disputes, Gazzada returns to -6 (62-56). The final period is very tense on a nervous level, also thanks to the incomprehensible arbitration and lack of uniformity of judgment on similar situations. Garcia is the only one to be expelled in a skirmish in which the same treatment should have been reserved for at least one other player from Varese. On the positive side, Mortara does not get sucked into the whirlpool of nervousness and comes out great in a difficult ending managing time and advantage up to 83-69 of the siren. –
