No chance in the Asobal league

The Asobal league turned out to be a tough challenge for Barca Borges, who ended the season as runners-up despite only conceding two defeats and a draw. Meanwhile, Ciudad Real went the whole season unbeaten.

The national league turned out once more to be a two-way fight between Barca Borges and Ciudad Real. However, Ciudad Real won all of their games giving Barca no chance of mounting a serious challenge – their victory in the Palau Blaugrana in the fourth round (30-33) set the tone for the rest of the championship – though Barca did at least hold first place after the opening game of the season against Frigoríficos del Morrazo Cangas (17-32).

Unbeaten away in the first half of the season

In the Palau they conceded a defeat to Ciudad Real and a draw against Ademar (26-26) in the eighth round.

The Quixote Arena clinches it

The turning point in the Asobal league came in the 19th round with the visit of Barca Borges to the Quixote Arena. Never had the league been decided at such an early stage. A 5-0 opening score swung the balance irretrievably in Ciudad Real’s favour (23-19) and left Barca trailing by five points in the table.

Impeccable finish

Even so, Barca never threw in the towel and produced an impeccable run-in. They achieved a 100% record and converted the best defence in the tournament to the best attack. Barca Borges finished in second position, five points behind Ciudad Real and nine points ahead of third-placed Valladolid.
