U19s hit four in derby win

Felice Tufano’s Under-19s recovered from conceding an early goal to defeat city rivals Genoa 4-2 in the Primavera 1 league on Saturday.

Gjini put the hosts in front with barely a minute on the clock but Di Stefano soon restored parity when he headed in Montevago’s cross.

Montevago then scored a header of his own to complete the turnaround before Paoletti made it 3-1, with Malagrida providing both assists.

Montevago continued to make a nuisance of himself after the break and forced a handball in the box by Gjini. Aquino slotted home from 12 yards to make it four.

Genoa substitute Sahli reduced the arrears with 20 minutes remaining and the Rossoblu then upped the intensity seeking a route back into the game, but the Blucerchiati defence stood firm to claim the derby spoils.
