Match report

Club Egara delighted their home crowd as they picked off Bromac Kelburne with a quartet of field goals and a Pau Quemada corner goal.

Quemada started their run when he fired home from a third corner. Xavi Aguilar then spun brilliantly on a chance from close range, gathering a ball from the left wing beautifully for a 3-0 lead.

Ben Peterson slammed home a corner for Kelburne from a corner to keep them right in the mix with six minutes to go in the first half, 3-1 behind.

But Egara took the game away from them in the second half Lluis Mercade roofing a reverse-stick shot into the top of the goal following a good advantage played by the umpire Tim Meissner.

And the game was killed off with five minutes to go when Aguilar found a route through goalkeeper Rory Kerr for their third goal from play. To add salt into the wounds, Pere Arch tipped in another, making it 9-1 in the final minute.

Egara captain Franc Dinares said of the win: “We are pretty happy; it was a tough game in the beginning but we were moving quite well with the ball and got clear chances. It was a matter of keeping going and finally, we deserved this win.

As for the field-goal situation, he said that even when his side were 5-1 ahead, there was no sense of relaxing, knowing how quick teams can come back.

“It’s a bit confusing right now. It was the first time playing with this rule but we will get used to it fast. 5-1 is not a clear result and they can get back into it quite easily with a couple of goals so you need to be focused all the time.”
