Barça Borges beaten in final (31-34)

Llorenç Tarrés (enviat especial)

Ciudad Real won the XXI edition of the Copa Asobal on Sunday night, beating Barça Borges 31-34. Barça put in a great first half, but were unable to deal with Ciudad Real’s improved performance after the break.

As happened in the Super Cup in Cordoba, Ciudad Real again denied Barça a title, as they first withstood Barça’s good start and then hit back in the second half to take the game.

Top teams draw the crowds

img_3286g.jpgThe two top teams in the ASOBAL drew in the crowds for the final in Vigo and they were treated to an impressive first half performance from Barça, though Luc Abalo first put Ciudad Real 0-3 up with a flurry of early goals. Rutenka, who is always motivated against his ex-team, play maker Dani Sarmiento (8 goals) and the great keeping of Saric pulled Barça back and by the 13th minute, they drew level at 7-7 when Albert Rocas scored and then Juanin put them ahead for the first time. With Saric making a great penalty stop and a fantastic strike from Dani, Barça Borges moved further ahead and began to take control.

The team were firmly focussed and with a solid 6-0 defence, supported by Saric, they took a 13-9 lead and although Ciudad Real hit back, they went in with a two goal advantage, 16-14, at half time.

Unfortunately, Ciudad Real came out on fire after the break and with a partial score of 1-6, they turned the score round. Juanin led a mini fightback, but with 15 minutes left, they were still 23-26 down and beginning to tire, as Ciudad Real took control.

Hopes kept alive
