“It was a final that was interpreted very well by the team – says coach Daniel Durand – It wasn’t easy after playing an important Serie A game the night before but the lads cared a lot and it showed on the pitch. The area finals are always an important event, there is always a great atmosphere with all the athletes from the other clubs there to watch the finals and I would say we expressed ourselves very well; We only had a small drop towards the end of the third set, but we recovered quickly in the fourth and won it 25-15“.
“So it’s a deserved win for the boys – continues Durand – and of course that makes us happy after the two setbacks we suffered in the championship; But the boys knew that at that moment there was a management more associated with Serie A than with the youth league. Now we have the regional stage, which unfortunately will still overlap with Serie A, but these guys have shown that they can handle all the commitments very well. Congratulations to them and, as always, congratulations to all our audiences who have followed us and never stop making a difference“.
captain Gabriel Chiloiro adds: “This result is the confirmation of our potential and what we can and can do. We were very good at getting out of a difficult moment after the third set. I’m honored to be the captain of this extraordinary group where we’re not just teammates but, above all, friends. I would like to dedicate this victory to all the members of our club, from the first to the last, and to all the U17 boys who made themselves completely available to ‘replace’ us who were busy with Serie A. The trophy and medals are yours too“.
