No better way to start the season. Barça lift the Catalan Super Cup for the 22nd time in their history thanks to a 44-30 victory over Fraikin BM Granollers in Martorell. It is the 9th successive win in the competition for the blaugranes and it came courtesy of a great performance from keeper Pérez de Vargas and Ludovic Fabregas' goals. 

The blaugranes get going early 

The game began with the sides exchanging goals before a string of saves from Pérez de Vargas allowed Barça to take a 9-5 lead. 

With Ludovic Fabregas providing the goals, Barça moved into a nine goal lead before a comeback from Granollers saw the advantage cut to 20-13 at half time.  

No room for a comeback 

Granollers matched Barça goal for goal at the start of the second half but the blaugranes held the advantage. However, in the latter phase of the second half Barça it up a gear and the lead stretched to 10 and then 14 with Ortega's team claiming a 44-30 victory. 

Carlos Ortega's side took the first trophy of the season, the 22nd Catalan Super Cup in their history, and Barça will face Granollers again soon in the first fixture of the ASOBAL league at the Palau Blaugrana on 3 September.
