resroma logoThe dream of Res Roma to reach the final of the playoffs valid for the promotion in Serie A vanishes at the twenty-second penalty: the goal from the Tuscan goalkeeper Mazzola decree in fact the victory of the bianconere after a match fought and always poised, where the yellow-red were not able to materialize the large amount of game produced during the ninety minutes and thirty extra time.
Mister Melillo opts for the usual 4-3-3 with Pipitone between the posts, Lavopa, Colini, Mancini and Cortelli in defense, Villani, Fracassi and Sergi in midfield, and with the attacking trident formed by Nicosia, Biasotto and captain Nagni .

The first half is stingy with emotions, with the two teams that fail to light a match in which prevails the tension for the high stakes: throughout the first portion of the game the only chills come to the half hour by captain Nagni that from a good position sends very little to the side.
The recovery begins under the sign of the yellow-red that close the Siena in their own half and collect scoring action: Nagni tries with a lick deflected in the corner, Villani touches the goal on two occasions from the place of football, Biasotto forces Mazzola to a providential deviation in korner, while in the final regulation time the new entry Corradino shivering at the bianconere touching the goal on two occasions. Siena defends itself and becomes dangerous only with Migliorini whose shot is masterfully deflected in the corner by a great intervention by Pipitone.
At the ninetieth the result remains the starting point and goes to extra time: the first time extra time begins under the sign of the Tuscan first hit the intersection of the poles with the usual Migliorini and then go ahead with Marraccini, whose shot from distance is unattainable for Pipitone. It seems over but the Res pulls out the character and after 3 minutes equalizes the score with Villani, who heads a goal from a corner kick Biasotto.
At the one hundred and twentieth the result remains unchanged and we proceed to an endless lottery of penalties: it takes eleven per side before the decisive realization of Mazzola which sanctions the passage of the turn in favor of Siena and leaves so much bitterness among the Giallorossi who say "goodbye" to his dream to arrive in Serie A, at the end of an extraordinary season full of successes.
"To lose in this way leaves a bad taste in the mouth - said the yellow-red coach Fabio Melillo at the end of the race - First of all I would like to congratulate all the girls and all the technical and managerial staff of Res Roma, who have done an exceptional job , dedicating ourselves to this project with passion and professionalism, we deserved more than for what we did during the year and for what we did today: we dominated and imposed our game, never giving up, even after Siena's goal that would have cut the legs to anyone.Unfortunately, on penalties someone had to pass and fate decided that they were our opponents who however have not stolen anything and have proven to have important values.We now have to start from here and aim for direct promotion next season. Moreover, this year we were a new promoter and a year ago no one would have credited us for such an extraordinary season. "
