Campo win battle of Spanish EHL sides

Club de Campo won the battle between Spain’s two EHL qualified women’s teams as Alejandra Torres-Quevedo grabbed the crucial goal against Sanse Complutense.

It was a repeat of last season’s national final and it was Campo who took the early advantage against their city rivals with Candela Mejias Zanetti scoring from a corner.

It remained that way until the final quarter when Linda Cobano Gotze levelled but, with five minutes left, Campo struck once again for a 2-1 success.

Campo are in fourth place as a result, three points off leaders Real Club de Polo and Club Egara with Junior FC in third, a point off first.

All of them won over the weekend with Junior running up a spectacular 6-4 away win over UD Taburiente with two goals from Laura Bosch.

Polo won 4-3 at Real Sociedad while Egara won their derby game against Atlètic Terrassa 1-0 with a Carola Salvatella.

Complutense are in sixth place with 10 points from eight games and plenty of ground to make up which they will hope to start on when they meet Junior on Sunday.

Both Campo and Complutense will play in the EHL Women’s FINAL8 next Easter.
