Emma Lipman’s Como Women failed to hold to their Serie B leadership after conceding a last-gasp 2-1 defeat at the hands of fellow promotion rivals Brescia, in a highly-anticipated clash on Wednesday night.
Following this victory, Brescia are the new leaders in Italy’s second-tier with 32 points after 14 games. Lipman’s Como, who slipped into second place, trail Brescia by two points.
The Malta women’s international defender was deployed from the start in Como’s formation, playing all 90 minutes.
Brescia forged ahead in the first half and managed to preserve their one-goal lead until the half-time whistle.
After the change of ends, Brescia were set to collect three important points before Como levelled terms on the 85th minute.
Lipman’s side almost notched the winner in stoppage time but they could not capitalise from a point-blank range. This chance came back to haunt Como as Brescia secured the win with a 95th-minute goal to seal three vital points in view of the Serie B promotion race.
