November has been a quiet month in Italy, the weather has been unusually sunny and warm, which is unexpected but great for playing lacrosse. It helped the Italian Championships see 4 very spectacular matches played this month.
Sunday, November the 10th
Red Hawks Merate 12 – 8 Phoenix Perugia
This match, between Merate and Perugia, was very intense and had one peculiarity: Perugia’s new goalie, Stefano Giozzi. Stefano, until July this year, was the goalie for Merate, and this switch added extra motivation to the Merate players who won one of the most important matches of the year.

Bocconi Sport Team 13 – 9 Roma Leones
After the Italian Cup final, Bocconi played another very good match against the Leones, showing that the new coach and new rookies have lived up to expectations. Bocconi keeps up their winning ways!
