Strong victory for the first team of Club Bàsquet Martorell, which won the regional derby against Club Bàsquet Esparreguera (85-58) and reaffirmed its leadership. After the win at home, the Blues are more leaders, with two wins on the sidelines, and have secured permanence for next season.

It took the Asparagus players five minutes to make the first basket in play, and they towed it throughout the match. The blues were very comfortable in attack and closed the first quarter with an impressive 26 to 8. In addition, they also offered a good version in defense, but CB Esparreguera woke up and risked from behind to win seconds on the clock.

The resumption began with 49 to 26 and the visiting team opting for very pressing defenses to try to give the surprise. The Martorell team offered a good collective game and neutralized any attempt to come back. In the last quarter, CB Esparreguera lived in isolated actions and could not stop a CB Martorell that was liked and sentenced to victory. The coach of the blues, Toni Olivares, admitted that they came to this game with revenge, and believes that they were superior in every way.

One of each against CH Ascó

The first women’s team of the Martorell Handball Club has won one of the two matches it has played this weekend against Ascó Handball.

In this way, they have pocketed the second victory of the course after falling in the two matches against Sant Vicenç Handball, now fifteen days ago.

In the home game against Ascó Handball, after the initial tie, the interventions of Carla Canto and the tough defense of Tarragona were the protagonists. Martorellenques were very erratic in attack, but they defended well and did not let CH Ascó get ahead on the scoreboard. Gradually, Miguel Angel Interllige opened the scoring, reaching the six-goal lead, 13 to 7. But the recovery of the visiting team was helped by the relaxation of the yellow-and-blacks in defense and gifts in attack. Thus, the first half closed with 14 to 12.

In the second half, Ascó’s attempts to equalize were neutralized. Helena Sevilla and Eli Buenestado, better in attack, loaded the team on their backs and returned the domain to the Municipal Sports Facilities. Despite the exchange of goals that came later, the Martorell team remained firm and sealed the victory, 32 to 28. In yesterday’s game, the Martorell team left empty-handed despite reaching the decisive stage for ahead on the scoreboard, from 23 to 24, the yellow-and-blacks fell by 26 to 24.
