Serie A1 – Pro Recco puts up 26 on Trieste

There were a lot of close games in the 19th round of the Serie A1, but Pro Recco – Trieste was not one of them as the reigning champions put up 26 goals on the visitors.

Pro Recco was the obvious favourite in this game but this was a total domination from their part as they scored at least six goals in every quarter of the game. This was an outstanding job by them. Aleksandar Ivovic was their top scorer with 6, but 8 other players found the back of the net. 

Brescia had some problems in Genoa where Quinto had the lead with one minute remaining in the third quarter (5-4). But Brescia switched gears, equalized before the last break and scored five goals in a matter of three minutes in the beginning of the fourth quarter to put the game to bed. 

Sport Management also had a tough job after losing to Brescia and Pro Recco in the previous rounds. They travelled to Sicily and although they were up 6-2 in the outside pool, the home team climbed back and was just one goal away from equalizing. They could not manage to do that so BPM came away with three points.

Fourth and fifth placed Posillipo and Florentia tied with a late goal from Posillipo. Sixth placed Lazio surprisingly lost so second to last Catania. Roma edged out Napoli to stay clear of the play-out zone with a great first quarter, while last placed Bogliasco was close once again to a victory, but could not pull it off against Savona.
