Lardo: “Contagious enthusiasm here in Campobasso. The Azzurre worked together “
Guest of honor in the Semifinals of the Serradimigni Trophy in ‘La Molisana Arena’ is the coach of the women’s team Lino Lardo.
“I saw a perfect organization with pretty full stands, even in the matches followed from home. The girls’ enthusiasm is contagious, says Lardo. Good plays with several important elements emerged. Congratulations to the companies that work hard in the youth sector and that we constantly monitor ”.
Two tournaments, in Spain and Friuli, and two rallies represented the center of the last blue phase of the activities of the women’s team. “We are satisfied with what has been done. I summoned a lot of players making a lot of them debut in blue. Both the rallies and the two tournaments have provided us with interesting information – he adds – and, although it is true that we have lost in both circumstances against Spain, we have instead overcome Belgium and Slovenia, comforting aspects in our race towards the ‘European, but we are still looking forward’.
In this sense, the medium and long term goals could coincide with the Olympic Games. “This is certainly the highest goal, but difficult to pronounce now. We are running for next year’s continental event. We have won two group rounds and we are happy, but there are still four left and if we get to the European Championship, we will aim to have a good tournament to enter the range of places that will assign us the classifications for the tests that will take place. be there later. We just have to cross our fingers, aware that the girls, so far, are proving to be well together and this is a significant aspect in perspective.

The “two towers” tactical weapon option for this stage of the tournament? It is a peculiarity that we have and that, by virtue of the full availability of the girls, we have implemented.
Are we the favorites for ultimate success? I honestly listened to it and made some superstitious gestures, but what I can say is that the girls are working hard to try to create a tournament where they can try to explore their own limits and peculiarities ”. Venezia managed to return only from the first break (from 4-11 to 11-11 with two free throws from Festinese and continued at a distance of three points until the end of the first quarter), then slowly sank under the blows of a natural.
