Latina 85 Tortona 77

Latina 85 Tortona 77

Bitter away match for coach Cavina's boys who suffered their third consecutive defeat.

Tortona starts with the usual quintet: Spissu, Marks, Reati, Brooks and Garri. The guests go to the line a lot at the start of the match then Mei brings Latina to plus 10 (20 to 10 with 1'30 left before the first interval) to which Tortona responds with a 7 to 2 for a final quarter that says 22 to 17 for the hosts.

Mosley is already on the bench with 2 fouls and Tortona finds the advantage at 30 to 27 about 6 minutes before the long break but the score is 6 to 0 for Latina for the new plus 5 at home. The match is enjoyable but it's torn on both sides. In fact, from 32 to 27 at home we quickly go to 41 to 34 away (partial of 14 to 2 in just over four minutes) with the Piedmontese going into the break with a 43 to 39 lead.

The third quarter is perhaps the lethal one for coach Cavina's boys. Mosley returns and begins to be a rebounding factor (in the end there will be 11 of which 6 offensive) and Latina scores 9 to 0 for the new home advantage. Uglietti lights up and scores 8 practically consecutive points and with a partial score of 26 to 10 they reach the last quarter at 66 to 53 for the Lazio team.

Tortona doesn't give up and gets closer but first a triple from Mei from eight meters at the siren and the presence of Mosley under the scoreboards keeps the guests at a distance. With 40 seconds to go Mosley makes 0 of 2 from the line but the ball remains in Latina's hands (there will be 15 offensive rebounds) and in fact the game ends like this. The final reads 85 to 77.
