the semifinal against Celts was a spectacular game: we start very well, with confidence and we go 2 -0 for us with goals from Davide Casati and Ennio Bovolenta. The Bhoys come back in the game with a free kick before that Simone Longo puts the ball in the net the for the 3 – 1 for the blues. In the latest minutes of the match the Celts's pressure produced the goal that fixed the score on the final 3-2 .
The final vs Leones Italianos has had a tough start for us, and after few minutes we were under 2 – 0, but after a reorganization we had a great reaction and we leveled the score on 2 – 2 (Casati again and an leones’s own goal); both teams try to take the lead in a thriller-final and at the end the trophy goes to Bilbao that won the game 3 - 2. Congrats to our opponents: they deserve it! We are however satisfied for our very good performance!
