Another defeat in the double playoff for Sporting Club Vado Ligure against Pinamare: the latter shines to continue the race towards Serie B.
Sporting Genova had a level performance, against Break Point Savona, as Davide Favati said: “Today everyone played well. Benasso played against Emanuele Caravelli (7/6, 6/1) and Federico Gaio lost two games in straight sets against Bartolomeo Caravelli Between Rava and Carta after the 6/0 in favor of ours, the second ended well in the tiebreaker.Finally, the young Sanguineto, who lost to a former 2.7, Marcocci, won by the withdrawal of the rival who had a calf problem. Of course, the fact that Sanremo is waiting for us, means that we will risk being tarmacked. However, we will try.”
