Ascoli allows Reggina a goal in fair play gesture

A game in Italy’s Serie B Saturday featured a rare instance of fair play, with Ascoli allowing Reggina to score uncontested.

It started when Reggina defender Carlos Valdez was injured and booted the ball toward the sideline so he could exit. Ascoli intercepted the pass and scored to go up 1-0.

Reggina protested vehemently and when play resumed, Ascoli’s players stood still and allowed Biagio Pagano to score.

Reggina went on to win 3-1.
