Campo do the Spanish double with both men’s and women’s title

Club de Campo did the Spanish double and secured the top European seeding for next season as their men saw off Atlètic Terrassa 6-3 while the women beat Junior FC 2-1 in their respective finals.

For the men, it was their first ever MGC league title as José Basterra playing a starring role. Atlèti, however, did go in front in the 15th minute via Marc Escudé

Former Polo man Mario Garin kept Campo in the running with a number of great saves and his side then took advantage of that effort to draw level in the 32nd minute via Álvaro Tello.

Pau Cunill, however, got the Terrassa club back in front by half-time from a corner. Basterra replied early in the second half from a corner to make it 2-2 and he repeated the trick to give Pablo Usoz’s side the lead for the first time.

And a dream third quarter continue when Alejandro De Frutos increased the gap after a cross from the right flank, 4-2.

A brilliant fifth goal followed soon after courtesy of Ricardo Sánchez. Cunill did keep their hopes alive with yet another corner with 11 minutes to go but the victory was sealed with an outrageous two-touch goal from Basterra, batting into an open goal from a long overhead from a Campo free-out.

Basterra got the player of the tournament award with Garin the best goalkeeper and Atlètic’s Jordi Bonastre the best Under-23 player.

In the women’s competition, Campo completed their outstanding season by retaining their title with a 2-1 success against Junior.

Begoña Garcia picked off a rebound to lead 1-0 in the sixth minute and they remained just ahead until 17 minutes from the end when Maria López’s second corner goal of the weekend from the corner doubled the difference.

Junior got one back through Laia Vidosa but Campo held on for their double delight. Begoña Garcia took both the best player and top scorer awards.

Junior goalkeeper Jana Martinez and Under-23 player Laia Vidosa won the other awards.
