By John

It wasn’t a memorable weekend for Messina’s youth sector who in the national championships suffered two defeats and a draw in the matches against Giugliano and Crotone. Carmelo Mancuso’s Primavera despite a worthy performancesuffered a 4-1 defeat in Santa Lucia del Mela from bell tigers.

Giugliano took the lead with Vitale but the biancoscudati soon returned to the game with Cutispoto’s penalty. The second goal of the yellow-blue striker opens up the definitive success of the guests who again scored in the second half, first with Sequino and finally with Signorelli. Messina regrets two big opportunities that happened to Romano and were stopped on the goal line by the Giugliano defense.

A Saturday full of satisfactions also for theUnder 15 national team that suffered a stinging 5-1 defeat in Crotone. Messina holds the field well in Cotronei but after conceding the first goal in the 35th minute they loosen up and are already three goals down at the end of the first half. Among the Calabrians, doubles for Montesano and Lami. Mimmo Moschella’s team scored the winner with Loria.Proof of pride, among the best of the season for the National Under 17 team which confirms itself as a tough opponent for anyone. Messina battled against Crotone of the same age, often being preferred in the 90′. Two decisive penalty kicks, both in the first half, scored by Viola on one side and Vrenna on the other. In injury time, Buonaccorsi’s Eurogol was canceled out as he inflated the crossbar with an overhead kick but was in an irregular position for the assistant. Championship break for Under 15 and Under 17 who will return to the field in mid-February. The Primavera will be guests of Ancona next week.
