At the “Fortunato Bonelli” stadium of the Belgrano Club, the opening ceremony of the first edition of the CAB 1 Sports Region tournament will be held today for the male and female branch, both in the First Division and in the Lower Division. At the start of the competition that brings together 35 clubs from the north of the province of Buenos Aires and the south of Santa Fe, at 7:30 p.m. they will play for the First Women’s Regatas contest of our city and Villa Gobernador Gálvez workshops and at the end Somisa and Temperley de Rosario will face each other for the men’s top category championship. The ticket for this day will have a value of $ 300. What happens on this day can be followed live and direct through YouTube.
To face the Regional -and aiming for the Federal of next year-, Somisa was reinforced with the arrivals of the experienced Rosario pivot Ezequiel Dentis, plus the young Gerónimo Rausch (intern from Bahia), Martín Pérez Douthat (Chaco forward) and Santiago Calderón (native base of San Jorge). These names were added to those of Gonzalo Silvero, Ramiro Cruz, Leonardo Lete and Federico Pascual, plus the boys who have been performing in good shape in the First local, an area in which the somiseros won five of the last seven titles.
In dialogue with EL NORTE, Nicolás Arámburu stressed that “the championship is going to be nice.” And he pointed out that “it means a lot to be in the opening jump of a new tournament.” “In the debut we are going to face a great rival, who plays very intense, very aggressive, who has a lot of youth and who is the protagonist in Rosario,” said the coach of Somisa when referring to Temperley, where Niky led in 2015 .
Regarding the Ayacucho street team, it must be said that its main figures are forward Dante Esquivel, guard Andrés Ottolini, while Álvaro Roig and Augusto Torres alternate at the base. Octavio Parizzia was added, recently passing through Gymnastics at Federal (Roig played it in Timbúes). Mariani and Zorrilla are other players in the formation led by Marcelo Roig, who has just beaten Sportmen Unidos 66-65 and fights for the top of Zone 2 of the Rosario Super League.
Returning to Somisa, Arámburu commented: “We are happy for the group that is being assembled, Ezequiel adds everywhere. The new guys are very good, with zero problems, very good teammates and they are adapting to what the club can offer them ”.
For today’s commitment Gonzalo Silvero with some physical discomfort is in doubt, while Calderón will not play, who is recovering from a sprained ankle. Another injured Somisa is Nicolás Rodríguez. Faced with these casualties, as is already happening, the U-20 Valentini and the U-17 Manuel Rodríguez, Brovarone and Vitangeli will have minutes to play. Regarding this, Arámburu indicated: “Manuel is making a huge effort to keep up with the older ones and he is really doing very well, based on all the effort he has been making, especially with a significant overload of games.” “We are also happy with what Maxi Valentini, Brovarone, Vitangeli, Di Renzo have been doing, all of them growing up and ready to play. It is a project that started in 2016 and that is bearing fruit, ”said the DT.
Regarding the previous game, for the women’s competition, the Regattas and Workshops of Villa Gobernador Gálvez will be a duel between old acquaintances, since both teams compete in Rosarina. There in the current tournament –which has them both fighting in the main positions– Talleres won 56-43. They also fought for the Federal, in which Talleres reached the semifinals (they won 63-42 and 77-56). The dribbles have a base with girls of experience with Julieta Molina, Cecilia Fernández, Florencia Botti (injured) and Andrea Albornoz, and young people who have been acquiring filming, such as Martina Soliz, Albertina Perazzo and Pilar Sáez.
“The idea is to be protagonists, we have a good team, with small players to whom we are giving possibilities. Talleres is not the same Federal team, because there are players who are no longer there, but it is also going to be a tough rival, “said Jorge Acosta, Regatta coach.
