The first edition of the futsal tournament “In Campo con il Centro Italia” has just ended and we want to congratulate the winning team, Leonessa!!! Vallemare in second place of the podium followed by La Via del Sale, third place.
We want to thank to all the team that took part in this ten day tournament, in the spirit of sport, fun and charity. Indeed, we must not forget the objectives of our association: all proceeds are going to be used to deliver a prefabricated house to a family who lost their home because of the earthquake.
We also want to thank the Polisportiva Comune Di Posta for the support in the making of the tournament, the AICS Rieti for the solid cooperation and the municipality of Posta and the AIC – Associazione Italiana Calciatori for the recognition.
Eight teams took part in the tournament, over sixty players joined the cause: La Via del Sale, Leonessa, Polisportiva Posta, Posta Roma, Sigillo, Vallemare, Vezzano, Villa Camponeschi.
The tournament was jointly organised by La Via del Sale and the Polisportiva Posta; all the proceeds will go to La Via del Sale Onlus. This association has concretely supported and helped the people of Central Italy affected by the earthquake thanks to private donations and to funds raised through charity events.
The participating teams were randomly divided in two groups: Vezzano, Villa Camponeschi, Leonessa and Vallemare composed group A, while group B was composed by Polisportiva Posta, La Via del Sale, Posta Roma and Sigillo.
Leonessa (9 points) and Vallemare (6 points) qualified for the semi-final of the group A, while Sigillo (6 points) and La Via del Sale (6 points) qualified for the semi-final of the group B.
Semi-finals took place on the 24th of August, exactly a year after the earthquake. Matches were played at night. Leonessa – La Via del Sale ended 8 – 3. After a very balanced first half had ended 1 – 1, Leonessa displayed a rampant second half to win the match and qualify for the final match.
The other semi-final was spectacular. A very addictive match full of back and forth; people in the stands were glued to their seats of the sport centre “Marino Camponeschi” until the final whistle blew. The match ended only after a fatal error during the penalty kicks. Vallemare won 8 – 7.
The final match, Leonessa – Vallemare, was played on August 26th, right after the match for the third and fourth place.
The first half of the match was quite balanced, but before the final whistle of the first half, Leonessa took a 2 – 0 lead. Vallemare tried to recover but Leonessa closed the deal with two more goals. Final score 4 – 1. Leonessa winner of the tournament. Vallemare ended up with second place.
The tournament “In Campo col Centro Italia” has been recognized by the municipality of Posta and by the AIC (Associazione Italiana Calciatori – Italian Association of Football Players); it was made possible thanks to the cooperation of the AICS of Rieti who arranged the renovation of the sport centre of Posta.
