Barcelona edges Real Canoe

The Spanish league first half of the season was concluded this weekend with the 14th round. Here Barcelona closed out league action in 2015 with a nice win holding off Real Canoe 11-10 in a close match-up. The home team, led by Lukas Duric (4 goals) and Joel Esteller (3) overcame a strong second quarter by the visitors who led 5-6 at half-time but eventually had to settle for the close defeat. A welcome one for Barcelona who now take 4th place on the table, tied with Mataro Quadis who also won on Saturday, and 2 points ahead of Real Canoe, now 6th. Mataro recorded their 2nd straight triumph beating Navarra in Pamplona 7-12, behind a combined 6 goals from top scorer Robin Lindhout and Pau Schnizler. Terrassa managed to hold on to their 3rd place in the standings as last ranked Sant Feliu suffered a 16-5 defeat.
Meanwhile Barceloneta still leads the way in Spain on Saturday holding Catalunya scoreless in the first half of an 8-2 victory. Sabadell follows in 2nd place after rolling past Rubi 20-8 in a blowout win. Sant Andreu added 3 points to their total in an attempt to close in on 6th place as Mediterrani was beaten at home 4-8 with Daniel Hernandez going for 4 goals in the win.
