Gaby Cairo’s team began this season’s OK Liga with a win, bagging seven goals against
newly promoted CP Monjos with a dominant performance over the full 50 minutes.
Both teams made it clear that they wanted to entertain from the start
and Barça looked to impose their speed on the game, going one up after just three minutes through a
Sergi Panadero goal, but the visitors, newly promoted, but with an experienced squad, were
determined to stand toe to toe with their hosts and they were on level terms just two minutes
It was a vibrant game and only a good stop from Egurrola stopped the visitors from taking the
lead again soon after – but it was Barça who got their second when Marc Gual rounded off a
Borja Ferrer was then shown a blue card for a foul on Marc Torra and from the resulting free
shot Reinaldo García made it 3-1 at the break.
Four more goals open up a gap
Five minutes into the second half, the referees awarded the visitors a
penalty for a push by Panadero on Ros, but Xavi Brichs found himself up against the excellent
Egurrola who not only saved the shot, but also the follow up.
Then Panadero began a move from the back and after involving all the other three outfield
players (Ordeig, Gual and Torra) he finished it off himself with a well placed shot from the left.
The fifth came from a Reinaldo free shot and with 10 minutes left, Ros failed to put away
another penalty for the visitors, whilst Gual made no mistake after he’d come back on after
treatment to score the sixth.
The seventh was for the youngster Marc Julià, making his league debut to finish off a well
deserved 7-2 win.
