Kurt Cassar was in action as Pallacanestro Orzinuovi made the most of their rescheduled friendly against Bergamo last weekend. The Times of Malta Sporsdesk looks at Cassar and other Maltese professionals plying their trade overseas in another segment of ‘Maltese Abroad’.
Kurt Cassar scored three points in the team’s friendly against Withu Bergamo on Thursday.
The friendly, pencilled in for the previous Sunday, had to be postponed after Bergamo players had contact with a member of fellow team Mantua Basket who later resulted positive for the virus.
As a precaution and following the FIP protocol, the Bergamo side had stopped all training and consequentially postponed their friendly against the Orzi.
The side now play Piacenza on Sunday in the Serie A2 league, one of the few Italian leagues still ongoing after new restriction halted all regional championships.
Mikela Riolo added to her minutes at CD Magectias but was unable to get her first points in a game against tough side BAXI Ferrol, who had won all of their previous first five games, on Saturday.
Magectias went on to lose 35-91 in what one would hope to be the toughest scoreline for Riolo’s side this season.
Magectias play Maristas Coruna in their next game on Saturday.
