Italy Water Polo

Savona, Trieste, Posillipo, Roma Vis Nova advance in Italian cup

Like in Hungary the domestic water polo season in Italy also got underway this weekend with the opening round of the national cup tournament. Here an ever busier group stage was played in Savona and the national training centre pool in Ostia. Savona, Trieste, Posillipo and Roma Vis Nova came out as winners advancing to the second round where the favourites, such as Pro Recco, Brescia, Sport Managment and CC Napoli will join them. Trieste’s advancement only came after having the best goal-scoring difference as now less than three sides finished the weekend with 6 points in group A. Bogliasco and newcomer SC Quinto were eliminated by the closest margin. For Bogliasco it was a bitter elimination after falling short to group winners Savona 11-10 in the weekend’s final match.
