Don’t give it up and don’t underestimate it because Belgrano has a pride and a moral that does not allow him to lower his arms. But the ALMOST who had him against the ropes say so, he forgave him and the Brown took the triumph of San Isidro by 30-23, on the first date of the second round of the URBA Top 12.
There is cloth to cut, pictures, stories. Was a party full of emotions And to make it even more epic, the rain was present when the fire of the teams spread through the air of La Catedral.
ALMOST had it in the first half. He cornered him with the forwards, he became strong in contact and the visitors found it difficult to get out of his field. Juan Torres Obeid scored the first try With the support of the forwards and for the game to turn gray as the afternoon, Belgrano resorted to indiscipline.
Three yellow cards for Tomás Teglia, Felipe Adrogué and Facundo Ferreti left him with 12 players and there the local did not liquidate it. A try by Matías Phelan, That left over from the top, was not enough to close the set 17-6 and in the complement, already with 15, Belgrano brought out his best repertoire.
The brown forwards matched, they launched into attack and at 6 ‘, from a line, the classic arrived try by Francisco Ferronato. Three minutes later the afternoon figure appeared, Augusto Vaccarino, to turn the result around.
The rain came and the score was even, first at 20 and then at 23. There it appeared Augusto Vaccarino who took the hero’s cloak: captured a Tomás Rosati hat in midfield, left 3 marks on the road and He gave the oval to Juan Brescia who went straight to the ingoal on the last play of the game.
Belgrano took the victory and he had several reasons to celebrate: the revenge of the defeat in the first wheel at home, the change of attitude and the epic run of Vaccarino. There will be time to analyze virtues and errors indoors. Today it was won and that celebration became a hug, a song and a jump. Belgrano achieved the victory because he clung to self-love and turned it into a smile.
