After the surprising all-Abruzzo semi-final, Giovinazzo’s incredible epilogue arrives: down 5-2 with 1’47” to go, the neroverdi take back Falconara and beat them in extra time
Reversals, surprises, epic comebacks. More of everything: the breathtaking women’s Serie A semi-scudetto. It took TikiTaka Francavilla two games to eliminate the more popular Pescara, unbeaten in the regular season and seeded number one in the playoffs. Bitonto needs three games to beat a City of Falconara who had the championship final in hand, before the dream turns into a nightmare.
Sensational in Giovinazzo
The challenge between the Giovinazzo champions is truly sensational. Those with the rosette in the chest had won in extremis in Falconara in race-1, but the Super Cup princesses had been able to recalibrate the series going to win, against the odds in Puglia, in race-2. Game 3, still in Giovinazzo, seems decided: Città di Falconara is ahead 5-2 with 1’47” to go, then the unthinkable happens. Renata scores three goals in 55 seconds completing a monstrous comeback. We go to extra time. The Citizens have none left: Diana Santos and again Renata send the PalaPansini into a frenzy. TikiTaka Francavilla-Bitonto will therefore be the final for the women’s championship, the ones that few expected.
