Back to work after an evening on the ice
The Spes girls brought luck to the hockey players of De Vilmont Cortina and now they get back to training in preparation for the clash with Novara.
Spes Conegliano brought luck to the De Vilmont Cortina hockey players who won against Bolzano on Thursday 23 December in front of the Panthers. A very interesting match ended 5-2 for the hosts and was the right occasion to do a twinning between the icehockey team of Cortina and the volleyball players from Conegliano. The girls and the technical staff went on the ice after the first period and exchanged shirts with Hockey Cortina's president Sandro Moser. The twinning was organized by Vinicola Serena, main sponosr of Sportivi Ghiaccio Cortina and shirt sponsor of Carmen Turlea.
Apart from the unusual evening, the "Panthers" continue to work in view of the fifth round match with Novara. The yellow-blue want to get their first league win against the team from Piemonte, and the girls also want revenge for the two defeats in preseason. The girls will trin both on Friday 24th and on Christmas.
As for the injuries it was a full week for Spes. Valentina Firoin is continuining her rehabilitation after the muscular injury and is almost back to normal. Though, she most probably won't play against Novara, to avoid any risks. In doubt is also Giada Benazzi, who got injured last Saturday and is still doing lighter training. For two players that probably won't make it for Novara, there is one that certainly will play against Asystel, it is Dragana Marinkovic. She had some problems with her heel, but medical checks showed it was nothing serious.
The game is on schedule for Sunday 26th December at 16:00 in the Zoppas Arena (live on Raisport). The interest around Spes is also shown by the numbers of the new application Spes Mobile. It has already reached a thousand visualizations, which shows that fans find it useful to always have the chance to see the latest results and standings. Also, only a day after launching the Blackberry version it already had more than 300 downloads.
