DHA: Atlètic Terrassa champion of the Centenary title
Atlètic Terrassa has revalidated the title of champion of Catalonia in the Division of Honor by winning the final match at Club Egara, a match played on Sunday at the Junior FC facilities. An exciting final that commemorated the Centenary of the oldest official competition in Spanish hockey, although, unfortunately, it was held behind closed doors following the protocols established by the Department of Health of the Generalitat de Catalunya. There was restricted access control for players, staff and authorized persons. We are grateful for the assistance of Jordi Sans, director of the UFEC and the director of the Catalan Sports Council, Antoni Reig, the latter was in charge of delivering the cup to the champions,
The Centenario title has been awarded to Atlètic Terrassa shoot outs and already has twenty-one in its list.
The capital derby was very even and with the defense in the middle of the field the yellows forced counterattacks and gave many dangerous plays, but the goals did not come. He went to the break with a draw at zero. It was not until the third quarter when Marc Vizcaíno put the champions ahead by throwing a penalty-corner that could not stop the Olympic Quico Cortés. This superiority lasted only a minute, because Xavi Aguilar took advantage of the rejection of the yellow goalkeeper, Marc Calzada, to get the tie and leave the game with everything to decide, forcing the title to be decided in the turn of the shoot outs.
In the shoot outs, and after nine attempts, Atlètic Terrassa recorded 4 and Club Egara 3; so the title was for Atlètic Terrassa.
