All over in 10 minutes (6-0)
Sònia de Alba
Barca Sorli Discau needed just 10 minutes of inspiration to make sure they took full advantage of playing at home to win the first quarter final game in the OK Liga against Lleida.
A hat-trick from López and one each from Páez and Ordeig made it 5-0 after just 13 minutes play.
Junior player Ferran Rosa rounded things off with a goal in the second half.
The win was even more impressive considering Barca were without their injured captain Alberto
Borregán, who watched the game from the sidelines.
Home advantage exploited to the full
As usual, the quarter final play offs began at the Palau after Barca had finished top of the
regular season, which will give them home advantage in the case of a drawn series – something
which by the looks of their performance against Lleida, they probably won’t be needing.
Carlos López got the scoring started after just two and a half minutes with virtually the
first attack of the game. Five minutes later, Lluís Teixidó’s shot from the right was parried
away Gascón, only for David Páez to pounce on the rebound and make it two. There was no time for
Lleida to react as 30 seconds later Mia Ordeig scored number three.
Argentinean Carlos López then grabbed two quick goals for his hat-trick and after just 13
minutes, Barca were out of sight at 5-0 up. The lead allowed Barac to bring on one of their young
promises Lluís Ferrer, who was to have quite an impact in the second half.
Paulis rings the changes
With the game virtually won at half time, Paulis rang the
changes to give some of his more senior players a rest and Ferrer rewarded his faith with number
six. It could have been more, with Mia Ordeig, Carlos López and Miquel Masoliver all going close.
The second game of the series is at 21.00 on Tuesday April 21 in Lleida and a win will see
Barça Sorli Discau through to the semis and give them time to prepare for the Final Eight of the
