In that play I penetrate, I see Joaquín alone and do not doubt it. Every morning I shoot a huge number of shots with Joaquín and I know he makes those shots. I did not hesitate to give it to him because I knew he was going to put it in. “
The Union party took it based on defense, leaving Lagomar in a low score, of this Federico said: “It is the key if we want to win this type of game. We started a bit difficult, a second quarter where they converted us a lot (29 points), but we were able to overcome it. By working hard we know that we are good defenders and that is how we should run the games. “
To finish, Ambrosoni talked about how to prepare for Wednesday’s match that can leave them in the semifinals of El Metro 2021: “First of all you have to clear your head and think that we are 0 to 0. Try to take the game the same as this and put in each ball as if it were the last.”
