World League: Italy takes hard loss against Romania at home in Oradea (ROU)
Romania 12 – Italy 10
(3-2, 4-3, 4-2, 1-3)
A Group 2 (composed of Montenegro, Italy and Romania) World League preliminary match held last evening in Oradea (ROU) resulted in a 12-10 victory for the home team of Romania, while Italy suffered a somewhat surprising loss. This win for Romania is a pleasant one and represents a marked improvement for the team, as the last time these two sides met (on January 21, 2009), Italy won by a whopping 10-2. Now, both teams are once again potential qualifiers for the Super Final in June. Thousands of jubilant spectators were on hand at the Olympic pool in Oradea (ROU) to cheer the triumphant home team.
The game was a true struggle from the opening quarter, with hard, physical play. M. Felugo (ITA) netted the first goal, but overall the Italian team started badly and would only be able to regroup in the final period, when it was already too late. In the central quarters, time seemed to be working against Italy, and they had difficulties in both their defensive and offensive strategies. Changes from the bench in the third period produced some reaction from Italy, although Romania’s Georgescu scored the first point of the quarter to make it 8-5 before Iosep (ROU) made it 9-5 three minutes later.
In the final period, a recuperated-looking Italian team scored three consecutive goals, but couldn’t manage to even the score in time to change the odds of the game. It was Georgescu again who put in the deciding point and the game concluded at 12-10. Upon reflection, the Italian coach Alessandro Campagna said, “It’s better to lose now. This allows us to go ahead with clear head on our shoulders and continue to work.”
Top scorers in the game were Iosep Andrei (ROU), who generated four goals, and V. Gallo (ITA), who netted three.
