Derby win confirms top spot (23-31)

Llorenç Tarrés

Barça Borges made it eight wins out of eight with a 23-31 win over near neighbours Granollers to confirm their top spot in the league ahead of the break in the competition.

Xavi Pascual’s team faced down a hostile home crowd and led almost right from the start with Lazlo Nagy chalking up four goals in the opening eight minutes, as the team raced to a 22-12 lead by half time. Although they dropped off a little in the second half, they eventually ran out comfortable winners.

Great start

Saric who stopped a penalty and two free kicks, put in a great performance, as did all of the defence, whilst Juanin finished with seven goals and Nagy with eight. It was virtually all one way traffic in the first half as Barça opened up a 10 goal lead

Solid defence

Barça hold their nerve

2010-10-24_FCB_BORGES_-_FRAIKIN_BM_GRANOLLERS_001.jpgGradually though, Granollers began to creep back into the game and the confidence seemed to be seeping away from Barça Borges. Ohlander began to impose himself in the Granollers goal and after he stopped three penalties, the hosts moved to within three goals (23-26).

Barça kept their cool and held their nerve though and Retanka led a 0-5 fight back that put an end to any hopes Granollers might have harboured. Not a great second half and a shadow of the first, but in the end Barça did enough to keep their 100% record and come away with the points
