Akragas, qualification with thrill in Casteltermini

The second leg of the round of 32 of the Italian Cup of Excellence took place (with the exception of Enna-Nissa), which saw the teams from Agrigento competing in group A, now close to the beginning, face off.

Casteltermini-Akragas 1-0 (first leg 2-0) The surprise of the day comes from Casteltermini where the hosts beat Akragas 1-0. The goal that decided the match arrived in the 40th minute of the first half and bears the signature of Cantavenera who beat with a first shot in the Di Carlo area. The biancazzurro goalkeeper will be decisive in the second half when he neutralizes the penalty beaten by La Cognata that could have taken the game to extra time. To pass therefore is an Akragas not in his best day. At Casteltermini there remains the satisfaction of an excellent result that gives confidence in view of the start of the championship. Sciacca-Mazarese 1-0 (first leg 2-0) At the Gurrera di Sciacca the neroverdi repeat the success of the first leg thus detaching the pass for the round of 16. The match was decided by the marking scored in the 13th minute by the Argentine Lucas Idoyaga. Mazarese went close to equalizing in the first half with a free-kick from Bono who hit the crossbar but failed to find other sharp points in a match in which both teams fell in the second half. The Sciacca therefore takes a first step of growth on the threshold of the start of a championship in which the neroverdi want to amaze. Pro Favara – Canicattì 1-0 (first leg 2-1) In the match in which the passage of the round was more in the balance at the end it is the yellow and blue who prevail at the end of a match in which there was no lack of emotions. Canicattì had the opportunity to put a mortgage on the qualification thanks to a penalty granted at 41 ‘of the first half: Iraci, who had transformed the penalty granted into full recovery in the first leg, this time is stopped by Sendin. The parade keeps the hopes of Pro Favara alive who in the 87th minute finds the goal that decides the story of the double confrontation with a header by Callea on the developments of a corner. The yellow and blue pass by virtue of the away goals rule, currently in force in the Italian cups.
