New look OK Liga

The change in system, and especially the elimination of the play-off, meant for a very different and more exciting season. The teams also had new rules to cope with and the idea that there were no meaningless matches.

The fixtures were also designed so that the big teams didn’t meet until later on in the championship, which ensured there would be excitement until the end.

Barša Sorli Discau started strong, with the new schedule meaning they dealt out some heavy defeats early doors. But their most direct rivals were doing likewise, and the real tension had yet to come.

The first point was dropped against Vilanova, a tough side that managed a worthy draw (3-3). Three days later, on their trip to Vic, Barša were beaten for the first time (4-2) and then lost again, this time to Liceo (1-2). But they were not the only team to be dropping points, and Barša ended the first phase with 37 points, the same as Liceo.

The second stage brought some shocks, such as the one in Lloret. But FCB made up for such slip-ups in style, knowing that everything would be decided late on. If they could just beat Reus, Vic and Liceo, the title would be retained. Barša Sorli Discau produced roller hockey of the finest calibre against Tecnol Reus, played Vic off the court at the Palau and were outstanding in A Corunya.

The OK Liga was theirs with two games to spare, because the Galicians’ loss in Reus meant FCB’s 13th title was a mathematical certainty even before they played their game with Alcoi. The final match in Tenerife was a mere formality.
