The location suits Oberá well. Playing in the red soil gives another touch to the cast of Fabio Demti, and he showed it again in Derna. Before his people, with a high-flying basketball, he achieved his third victory in a row at home, after defeating Obras 107-80 and Argentino 94-72. In this way, and with a seamless first half, he stretched that streak against a very tough team such as Gymnastics.
The first quarter was won 27-17, and the second 23-19, arriving at halftime with a 50-36 advantage, which was surely unexpected for the Celeste cast in the previous one. Where was the difference? Facundo Giorgi became the owner of both paintings, and the internal rival on duty, whether Acuña or Romero, could not stop him (he ended with 21 units): Oberá ended up winning the duel in that sector by 48-36, as well as the rebounds by 41-40, although the low effectiveness was noticed from the outside, with a 27% product of 5/18. In addition, he only had 6 losses, against 10 of the Green.
The missionary representative had a great first half, based on good defense, they built an attack with mobility and solidity, which also passed the ball with good arguments and complicated the defense of Gimnasia that Giorgi could not control (11); plus the good income of Givens (8) and Peralta (8), with eight points each, in addition to the calm and strategy of Treise at the base.
Gymnastics sought, in the rotation, the return to the game, without too many answers. At times he found them with Acuña (8) and Romero (9) in the painted area, in others from the perimeter via Barreiro or Vega, or also with the good hand of Elliott (6).
After the long break, Martín Villagrán’s team showed all its qualities, little by little it was imposing its game, shortening the differences, with Elliott from the perimeter plus Vega in the same category. With Orresta very active, he smoothed out the difference and got into the game. On the closing, with a triple by Barreiro, he put the result in a draw: 62-62 with a resounding 12-26 partial.
The last set was blow for blow, Gymnastics continued on a streak and did not consider any ball lost. But those led by Fabio Demti did not lose their minds, Giorgio was once again important in defense controlling Acuña. Also De Los Santos, was fundamental, with a couple of penetrations and a triple on the end to make a small difference.
