The Easter holiday, marked by the victory of Gamma Innovation Sarzana, is already in the annals, but the winners will soon have to forget because the season is so urgent. Double appointment in 24 hours, the after-party for a club that has definitively entered the elite roller hockey game, nearly thirty years after its founding, having won several glories in the youth field and a path of growth both nationally and internationally. Sarzana is the 20th Italian municipality to be able to boast the most national laureate at the male level (the last Forte dei Marmi in 2013), and the twenty-fourth also including the titles won in the female field (the last Montebello in 2019). Gamma Innovation Sarzana has to set aside a historic weekend to indulge in the second of the three goals still open: the PalaTerzi Coppa Italia winners’ adventure to immediately find an advantage in the preliminaries and in about a month the European semi-finals begins. The opponent is one of the most annoying contenders, Federico Paghi’s Edilfox Grosseto, who is more comfortable and above all who interpreted the latter part of the season better, beating Forte dei Marmi at home. Tenth to seventh and there is no doubt that the home leg advantage is the biggest point for Mariemann who won 5-2 in the league when the Rossoneri beat PalaTerzi 4-3. The red and white teams are looking to confirm their seventh place to enter the playoffs for the first time in their history, which goes hand in hand with the attacking vitality that has not always been noticed this season. “Not even time to party, you have to get back on track in a commitment that is vitally important for the rest of the season – President Maurizio Corona announces that he is still rejoicing at the victory achieved by his team In Sarzana now we are all in heaven, after Montebello was a complete disaster, and instead there is a common ground our fans must begin to understand. There is not only black and white, there are different shades of colors. Wednesday we have to stay on the ground, it’s going to be a tough match, Badji’s teams are always very aggressive, with their playing philosophy and I’m sure they will play a core game and try to replicate that strong and tough performance. That in the last tournament of the tournament he placed the barge Forte dei Marmi which was previously better than Bassano and went on to conquer a point on the circuit of Italian champion Lodi. This Maremma team is a well-organised team – President Corona continues – an opponent that must be approached with great calm and challenged with great calm without having the enthusiasm to go in search of an immediate match unblocking. In the return match of the regular season that took place on March 30th in Maremma, the Paje team gave us a good lesson that showed the quality of their team. Personally, I’ve always had a lot of respect for Grosseto’s team – Corona concludes – but on Wednesday we can’t go wrong with our approach, for us the match against Grosseto is key if we want to continue our qualifying journey. This is the moment when we can’t make mistakes, we can’t disappoint our fans, this is the moment when we have to be united, humble but bring the score home and then challenge Lodi in the quarter-finals.
