It was played last Sunday, May 15, the final play-off of the Sicilian promotion championship group D between Mazzarrone and Gela finished 3-2 in favour of the hosts.
After a championship almost always led to standing the formation coached by Costanzo had to surrender only to the last day at Modica that with 2-0 at the municipal of Mazzarrone has earned the record in the standings and therefore also direct access to the championship of Excellence next year, effectively relegating Mazzarrone to the taboo of the playoffs. Gela earned the final playoffs by virtue of fourth place in the regular season and after beating Sporting Eubea in the Semi final 4-1.
In the municipality of Mazzarrone over 500 fans were present to support the yellow-red team.
However, the result was unlocked by Gela at the eleventh minute with Giaquinta and a few minutes later, at the twenty-third minute, there was the doubling of FC Gela signed Iannizzoto.
So we go to rest on the score of 2 to 0 in favour of the guests, so it will be up to coach Costanzo to charge the team to attempt the comeback.
And it is at the first minute of the second half that comes the moment of the turn: Provenzano’s free kick on which the historic captain of Mazzarrone, Campanella catches the ball in the net and makes it to 2-1.
To aggravate the situation, after entering the area Iannizzotto drops and for the referee there is no doubt: yellow card for simulation, which added to that obtained in the first half is red!
This is the moment where Mazzarrone must try to push to exploit numerical superiority.
And here he is at the twenty-eighth minute of the second half the draw of the hosts with Incardona who with a shot from outside the area pierces Pizzardi and restores the parity.
At this point Mazzarrone travels on the wings of enthusiasm, but it doesn’t succeed in realizing at best the many occasions built.
The darling of the house Totò Maiorana, at the fourth minute of the added time, with a bump on the left wing, swerves in the area and is mowed by the Gela’s defender…penalty for Mazzarrone!
On the batting point there is as always Provenzano who is cold from eleven meters and hits behind the goalkeeper.
The party explodes at the municipality of Mazzarrone, with the hosts who with an incredible comeback manage to earn the final play-off against the Leonfortese which will be played on Sunday, May 22 on the neutral field in Favara.
Great joy for the hosts who have transformed a short time into a great reality, and this is also demonstrated by the results obtained with the youth sector or the victory of the regional championship in the under 19, and the victory of the provincial championship in the 17.
There is therefore great trust in the work done by the company in these years, hoping to be able to give continuity in the future!
