Handball team take first title of the season (37-28)

Verònica Díez

Barça Borges won the final of the Liga de los Pirineos beating USAM Nimes 37-29 in a game they dominated from start to finish.

Xavi Pascual’s team took their first title of the season, the tenth time they have won Liga de los Pirineos. This was a much easier game than the semi final against Saint Raphael and the Barca team looked more comfortable and in charge throughout.

Flying start

Things just got better as the tough Barca defence and a brilliant display of keeping from Saric together with some fast and intelligent passing on offence gave them a 21-14 lead at half time.

No change after the break

Nimes were never going to pull that back and Pascual’s team duly took their first , hopefully of many, titles this season.
