Martina Borg and her Sassari Torres side have taken control of their fate after beating promotion rivals Arezzo 3-1, to take top spot in Serie C – Girone C.
Sassari and Arezzo headed into this game joint-second on 40 points, two behind leaders Bologna.
Borg’s side cancelled a one-goal deficit to score three times in the second-half and open a three-point lead on Arezzo and Filecchio Women, who held Bologna to a 3-3 draw as the promotion race for Serie B is now wide open with three points separating four teams.
Malta midfielder Borg was a second-half entry with Sassari leading 2-1 before adding a third, sealing the victory. Late in the game, the Sardegna-based side failed to add a fourth from the spot.
Sassari’s next appointment will be against third place Filecchio in another crucial clash in Italy’s third-tier.
