Barça Sorli Discau lose penalty shoot out (3-2)
Sònia de Alba
After 50 minutes plus 10 of extra time and 10 penalties in the shoot out, Barca Sorli Discau saw their cup hopes dashed as Vic won this semi final on penalties.
In a thrilling finale, Aitor Egurrola was shown a blue card and although Octavi Tarrés did his best
and Reinaldo drew Barac level, it was the Vic captain Titi Roca who scored the decisive penalty to
take Vic into Sunday’s final against Vilanova, who beat one of the favourites Liceo 3-4 after
coming down from 1-3.
Barça Sorli Discau came out focussed and determined not to give Vic any chances and played
with a packed defence which made Mig Ordeig’s 5th minute penalty even more of a great start
to the game. Barca continued to attack during the half, but also ensured a rapid coverage in front
of the impeccable Egurrola.
Vic draw level
Barca continued to avoid errors in defence in the second half until Carlitos López
gave away a penalty, which Titi Roca put away to draw the teams level. Then the referees stepped in
and in a flurry of cards showed a red to the Vic assistant coach and a blue to Reinaldo García. The
fouls were coning thick and fast now, but neither team could take advantage of the 10th and as the
clock ticked down both Egurrola and Fernández made great saves.
Extra time and penalties
Extra time brought no change and the tie went to penalties. In Vic’s third
round, Aitor Egurrola was shown a blue card for moving before the shot was taken and Octavi Tarrés
had to step in. There was nothing he could do about Carbó’s goal, then Androher and Marc
Torra both missed. Reinaldo García drew the scores level, but Titi Roca scored to put Vic through.
