Francesca Pompa, from Varese, wins silver with Italy at European golf championships

Good morning more good news for Varese!

In the final, the Iberians prevailed 4.5-2.5. Three of the four finals won by Spanish teams.

Spain outscored Italy 4.5-2.5 to win the European Girls’ Team Championship on the Golf D’Hossegor (par 71) course in the city for which the club is named, France.

The winners set the tone for the match with a 2-0 win in doubles that made things particularly difficult for the blue girls, who turned in a very generous performance rewarded with a silver that also encapsulates all the other good things they showed in the tournament.

The Spaniards’ points in the foursomes were scored by Paula Martin Sampedro/Anna Canado Espinal (2&1 over Natalia Aparicio/Paris Appendino) and Andrea Revuelta Goicoechea/Rocio Tejedo Mulet, who prevailed on the last hole against Francesca Fiorellini/Ginevra Coppa (1 up).

In the singles blue points by Varese’s Francesca Pompa, who won all the matches played, (3&2 over Cloe Amion Villarino) and Francesca Fiorellini, who overwhelmed Anna Canado Espinal (7&6), then the decisive ones by the Iberian Paula Martin Sampedro (5&4 over Matilde Partele) and Andrea Revuelta Goicoechea (2&1

over Natalia Aparicio) and a tie between Rocio Tejedo Mulet and Ginevra Coppa.

Italy, after being allowed into the first round with sixth place in the qualifier, distinguished itself in match play by first overcoming France (4-3), which was defending its title, and then with a great comeback over Sweden (4-3) after a 0-2 disadvantage in the foursomes.

It is the sixth silver in the 29 editions of the event for the Italian women’s team, in which they have achieved two successes during a great five-year period in which they also took three second places (2014, 2015, 2017), with the other two in 1995 and 1999.

In the final for third place, the Netherlands overcame Sweden 4-3. In fifth was Ireland (3-2 over England) and in seventh was Denmark (3-2 over France).

The Azzurrine were supported by Roberto Zappa, Technical Commissioner Women’s National Amateur Team, captain Anna Roscio, Team manager Women’s National Team, and coach Alex Senoner.
