Women’s basketball, Luiss Roma loses in Ostia against Talea

  • 24 April 2023

On Sunday, April 16, Luiss Roma Basket Feminine is away in Ostia for the playoff quarter-finals of Serie C.

The first quarter is rather balanced: the teams seem to study each other on the pitch and it’s hard to find the way to the basket. The first fraction thus ends 14-10 for the landlords of Talea.

The second quarter sees the game light up above all on the aspect of physicality: the teams fight for every ball up to the long rest with a score of 30-23.

In the third quarter, the Luiss girls try to hook Talea up to a single possession disadvantage at 34-31. The girls then tried to raise the intensity, but the rotations of an already very short bench due to injuries and important absences, further burdened by fouls, effectively led the match until the final whistle. The match thus ends 61 to 49.

A round of applause to the girls on the pitch and the injured players on the bench who have never stopped supporting the team.

Now back to the house for the most classic of win or go home. We need all the support of our colleagues, friends, companions to try to bring the series to the top.
