Serie A Round: Ampoli move out of the drop zone with a win

AMPOLI, Italy (AP) — Ampoli moved further away from the drop zone after beating relegation-threatened Cremona 2-0 in Serie A on Friday.

Ampoli are 10 points clear of 18th-placed Cremona, who are three points adrift of safety.

Even after the first half, Ampoli forward Niccolo Cambiaghi came off the bench and made an immediate impact, scoring 16 seconds after the restart.

He was able to get onto the ball in a scramble of players on the edge of the area and put a low shot into the bottom left corner.

Cambiagi doubled their tally late on but Cremonese goalkeeper Marco Carnicci brilliantly kept his effort out of the net. However, Fabiano Parsi practically rebounded from the goal line with two minutes remaining.

Ampoli keeper Guglielmo Vicario pulled off a brilliant save and both sides hit the woodwork late on.
