Barça Lassa - Halle-Gooik: A win without reward (7-3)
Andreu Plaza’s side beat the Belgian team but couldn’t finish top of the table due to the result in the other group match
Barça Lassa will play in the Elite Round, but will do it as the second-placed team in the group. Their goal was to finish first after this win in the third game of the Main Round against Halle-Gooik (7-3), but a hat trick from Esquerdinha, Ferrao’s brace and goals from Aicardo and Adolfo, were not enough. Benfica, in the other group match, humiliated Kremlin Bicêtre (1-9), a goal difference that catapulted them to the top of the standings.
The Blaugrana needed 12 minutes to lead by 4-0, a period of the match in which they had absolute superiority in all facets. However, the visitors came storming back to bring the score to 4-3 on 28 minutes.
In the end Aicardo, with a powerful shot (5-3, min 30), Ferrao (6-3, min 33), and Adolfo (7-3, min 36) gave Barça Lassa some breathing space, and it was a lead they held onto until the final whistle.
