A win that permits the dream to continue (35-32)

Verònica Díez

Barça have beaten Ademar in a real dual of giants that swung in Barça’s favour in the closing minutes. A partial score of 3-0 in the last minute gave the Barça players a win that allows them to dream of a league title.

It was a tense game this Tuesday in the Palau Blaugrana. FC Barcelona took their opportunities in the opening minutes but against a big club such as Ademar anything can happen. In the second half, Ademar looked more focussed and accurate in their game and managed to take the lead. But Barça refused to give up and finally took the two points.

Ciudad Real’s 27-30 win against Fraikin Granollers leaves the table as it was. Barça is two points off first place and will go for bust this weekend against Quijote Arena. They need to win by four goals or more to continue the dream.

Plenty of goals

However, Barça made better use of their opportunities and after a finely balanced 24 minutes, Iker Romero made it 18-15, the biggest lead of the game. From this moment on, Pascual decided to move Cristian Ugalde forward. Ademar quickly adapted and cut the lead to 19-18 at the break.

Final minute of glory
