Club Bàsquet Martorell beat Club Bàsquet Esparreguera (76-74) in Saturday’s derby at the Municipal Sports Pavilion and has equaled its balance sheet to three wins and three losses. Those of Jordi Pi and Manu Hernández took the third victory of the course in a match that lasted more than two hours and where there was everything.

The Blues started commanding on the scoreboard and imposing their law on defense, but the Asparagus reacted in time and shortened the disadvantage. In the second period, Guim Expósito was the shocker and leading a partial 0 to 6 put his team ahead. The Martorell team were uncomfortable with the defensive pressure they received and were stuck in the 36 points at the end of the first half.

In the second half, the third quarter saw the game tied again. For CB Martorell, Xavi Balaguer took the reins. And in an action where Albert Valle from Martorell received a blow to the nose that forced him to leave the field of play, the game was clouded. Pau Campanya, the author of this blow, tried to apologize, but coach Jordi Pi intervened and was sanctioned with a disqualifying foul. This gave wings to the Martorell, who, injured, put more intensity in their game. The third quarter ended in a draw at 55 and everything was decided in the last ten minutes.

The last period was an exchange of blows, with short attacks by both teams and also with errors that ended up penalizing. Two decisive actions by Xavi Balaguer and Luis Martos gave the key to victory for the blues. And Guim Expósito was able to tie the game and go into overtime, but in the end the victory stayed at home and the Martorell team equals 3 wins and 3 defeats their balance sheet. Coach Manu Hernández spoke about the outcome of the match and gave the keys to victory: “We have managed to get the game going, unfortunately with the expulsion of Jordi Pi.”
