After the small 'shock' that the Barša team received on Sunday against Port Sagunt, playing an
excellent first half, but slacking off in the second,Barša Intersport wanted to recover their best
sensations and certify a solid win over the whole 60 minutes. Quabit BM Guadalajara was on the
receiving end of a match totally dominated by the Catalan team, giving them their fourth Asobal
League victory, and consolidating their leadership for another week.
Lots of speed
Xavi Pascual’s team determined the pace of the game. With Daniel Saric aborting
Guadalajara's attempts to open the scoring, the speed of the counter attacks, well executed by all
the players, already opened a gap like a chasm,
although only three minutes into the game (1-3). Guadalajara needed more than skill to
overcome the Barša defence. The attitude, and the activity, of the Barša players was superb. From
wide, Victor Tomßs (9 goals) destroyed Jorge Oliva, who became very desperate.
A partial 0-5 halfway through the first period took Barša further ahead (18-7). Igropulo,
Nagy, and Noddesbo, scored goals of great quality.
Rutenka also got involved, assisting Noddesbo to make it 20-9, and the first half came to a
close with the score 23-11.
In the second half, a goalie change (Sj÷strand came on for Saric), and almost the whole team
changed, but the sensations were the same. The players didn’t ease off. Pre-warned after the
game last Sunday, Barša Intersport opened the second period with a partial 0-4.
The difference reached up to 18 goals (40-22) towards the end of the game.
Only the appearance of a pretty effective Eduardo Reig revived the home fans’ spirits,
encouraged by the actions of their player. Reig, who finished with eight goals, scored the final
goal of the match, with the clock run down, from the 7 metre mark. Final score 40-25 to Barša.
