Edimes suffers the strong start of Legnano, then returns but in the final the guests manage to place the decisive extension
First defeat of the season for a rather subdued Edimes Sanmaurense: the Pavesi, within the friendly walls of PalaRavizza, come out defeated by the confrontation with Legnano for 58-63. The guests commanded from the start (14-19 at 10 ‘, 28-35 at 20’), the hosts drew at an altitude of 46 at 30 ‘, but in the final it was Legnano who won with a super Rinke (19 points) . A Biraghi on fire is not enough for the boys of coach Fossati (22).
Legnano strong part
The start is all of the guest brand who takes advantage of the soft defense of Edimes to place a 6-0 half-time in the first minute of play, immediately forcing coach Fossati to timeout. To unlock Sanmaurense from the field is Gatto with a triple, but Legnano does not seem intimidated and remains ahead at 6 ‘with two baskets from Toia, despite Ragni’s 2 + 1 (8-15). Gatto tries to put a patch on it with another bomb, but the partial guest continues up to +8, before Roppo with three free throws allows his team to shorten (14-19 at 10 ‘). The Sanmaurense restarts better in the offensive phase with the baskets of Biraghi and Poggi, but is still punished in the defensive one by the seven points in a row by D’Ambrosio (21-26 at 13 ‘). The back and forth between the two teams continues: Poggi tries to shake his team, even if the guests are still pushing on the accelerator, punishing the opponents ‘turnovers (25-32 at 18’). The +7 for Legnano remains unchanged until 20 ‘: the first half ends at 28-35.
Biraghi shakes up Edimes
Upon returning from the long break it is Biraghi who shakes his team at the start with ten consecutive points, interspersed with the visiting baskets of Hamadi and Cantarin: Edimes returns to -2 (38-40 at 25 ‘), this time forcing coach Beneggi to the pitstop . The game becomes interesting: another amazing Biraghi signs the parity, Hamadi the counter-pass and in the final period the Sanmaurense grabs the opponents with yet another basket from Biraghi (46-46 at 30 ‘). At the beginning of the last fraction Rinke places two heavy bombs for +6 (46-52 at 33 ‘), Gatto and Pagetti try to respond, but Rinke is on fire and makes another five (50-57 at 36’). It is the decisive tear: the desperate attempts to return to the final are of no use, Legnano deservedly wins for 58-63.
