Alberto Borregán lifted the roller hockey section’s fifth Super Cup at the Ateneu de Sant
Sadurní by beating Tecnol Reus in the final. It couldn’t have been a better start to the
season, nor for Gaby Cairo’s debut as coach and although the team have had just a couple of
weeks to work together, they made up for any rustiness with plenty of character and offered a
foretaste of what will hopefully be a spectacular campaign.
Three quick strikes
With an experienced starting five made up of Egurrola, Borregán,
Ordeig, Panadero and Torra, Barça were on the attack from the off and Reus slipped into their
counter attacking style causing Egurrola into a fine stop. With the entrance of Reinaldo and Gual,
Barça got their first goal, when the Argentinean put away a penalty. A minute later the lead
doubled when Reinaldo this time combined with Pablo Álvarez who scored at the far post and then
almost immediately afterwards, Gual made it three.
Reus were looking ragged now and a bad foul by Raül Marín on Alvarez, which led to a penalty
which Alvarez failed to put away before Reinaldo was again on target with a placed shot to send
Barça into the break leading by a clear four goals.
Too many fouls
Barça began the second half with the same intensity, but they were
building up fouls and on 35 minutes they had committed 15 against just 4 for Reus and Raul Marin
took advantage to score from a free shot after the first cycle of 10 fouls, though he
couldn’t do the same after the end of the next cycle.
Five minutes later, Caldu committed a clear penalty, but Mia Ordeig failed to score,
alongside Panadero, who missed his chance after Molet saw a blue card.
The game was finally wrapped up by another goal from Pablo Álvarez, who rounded off a good
team move, whilst there was also time for the youngster Xavi Barroso to take part in the game.
