“Overall, it was a really good game, and each player played well both technically and tactically, giving the necessary contribution to the team,” coach Francesco Serraino commented. “The opponents also played a good game. They were competitive, but this didn’t stop our Gladiators to stay ahead and win!”
The first quarter of the match saw our Gladiators gain a decisive advantage over the opposing team, ending 28-19. The attack was really energetic and dynamic as well as the defence. Similarly, the second quarter started well for our Gladiators who only gave up a little bit at the end, losing some homogeinity and cohesion on the attack. However, JCU was able to maintain the advantage prevously conquered, finishing the quarter 43-33.
The third quarter, instead, brought a change in the dynamism of the game. Indeed, JCU defence went a bit loose, leaving space to the opponents to almost tied up the result, which ended 61-58. In the last quarter, JCU defence came back stronger and gave more confidence to the attack to score the last points of the match and win.
