FC Barcelona closed out the year in the Palau Blaugrana with a 42-25 win over Benidorm in which Dika Mem and Víctor Tomás were the stars in attack and Gonzalo Pérez de Vargas shone once again between the posts.
After an even first 10 minutes the efforts of Tomás and Mem in attack and the excellence of Pérez Vargas - he ended the game with 21 saves - began to be reflected in the score with Barça 15-7 up at half time.
Benidorm improved after the break but once again Dika Mem helped Barça restore their advantage at 35-21 with 10 minutes to go. Xavi Pascual's side closed out the game for the win and their 29th successive win in all competitions. The team face an league away game at Ángel Ximenez - Avia PG before the chance to claim more silverware in the Asobal Cup.
