Historic Victory for Our Gladiators!

It has been an eventful week for the Gladiators, with four out of six teams participating in matches. The week started on a rough note for the men’s 5vs5 soccer team under coach Franceschi, who played a tough game but couldn’t overcome the Cattolica University, the actual leader of the ranking. However, Wednesday was the day that will go down in history for the fantastic result that the men’s soccer team, under coach Marian, achieved in an away game against Sapienza. They won by a stunning 7-1, the biggest victory in the 16-year history of the Gladiators.

Not only was it an excellent result, but also the team played harmonious and determined football. Giorgio Castellani scored a brace, taking his tally to five goals in the last two games. The team continues its climb up the league table, currently sitting in fourth place. They dedicated the win to the two Gladiators, Erick and Zane, who recently got injured and are still recovering.

At the same time, the Sapienza Sport also hosted a volleyball match between the two universities. Sapienza emerged victorious with a score of 2-1. Coach Papari’s Gladiators earned a point, which boosts morale and shows that with more attention and fewer errors, the team can achieve great results.

On Wednesday, the basketball team, led by coach Cano, played a tough game against the University of Europea, with a limited number of players. Nonetheless, they emerged victorious with a score of 55-45, earning three points and moving back up the league table.

Next week, there will be six matches, and everyone is invited to come and support the Gladiators live. It is a great opportunity to witness the hard work and dedication of our athletes and to cheer them on as they strive for success. The Gladiators’ historic victory this week shows that with teamwork and determination, anything is possible, and we look forward to seeing what they achieve in the coming weeks.
