Barceloneta pushed to limit by Mataro

They were main rivals in the Spanish league and the meeting turned to be a thriller. Barceloneta, defending champs and still unbeaten this domestic season, were pushed to the limit by Mataro Quadis in the 7th round Saturday before Marc Roca came to the rescue scoring the game winner with just 4 seconds left as the league leaders won 14-13. But after Terrassa beat Real Canoe 9-6 at home they have now grabbed second place and are just trailing three points. In other games Navarra and Sabadell welcome a third win of the season. The Pamplona based side won a close match-up with Barcelona 8-9 while Sabadell topped fellow 5th place contenders Catalunya 14-10 at home. Sant Andreu added three points as well gaining a solid 11-5 victory over Helios, Mediterrani did the same against last ranked AR Concepcion: 9-18, and now find themselves in 4th place on the table.
