Half League for IES La Orden



The Rinconada Badminton Club, one of the 30 clubs that are part of ACELITE, has not had its best day. All the enthusiasm for achieving the long-awaited 12+1 has been diluted by a match where the corner players have not had the day. All this, added to the inconvenience of Bea Corrales that has only allowed her to play the women’s doubles, have meant that Recreativo IES La Orden has once again a very expensive final for the return match at Fernando Martín. The match began with a fast-paced mixed doubles, where the corner players already gave the negative sensation that would accompany Antonio Molina’s men throughout the match. Tom Wolfenden and Claudia Leal could not do anything and ended up losing the match in three quick sets (11-10, 11-8, 11-4) against Pablo Abián and Haideé Ojeda. The corners would provide some hope by managing to win the next two men’s and women’s doubles matches. First of all, Tom Wolfenden and Jaume Pérez would quickly resolve the match in three sets (10-11, 8-11, 10-11) while Bea Corrales and Claudia Leal beat Telma Santos and Haideé Ojeda (6- 11. 11-10, 8-11, 8-11). One more year, individual duels continue to be the executioner of the corner team.

Huelva’s power at these points could not be offset by those from San José de La Rinconada, who gave up all four points, the match between Carlos Piris and Alberto Perals being key to the outcome of the match (and practically the final). it was resolved in the last set after a fast-paced match in the previous four sets (11-7, 5-11, 8-11, 11-8, 11-3). After this match, added to the defeat of Laura Molina against Telma Santos (11-2, 11-5, 11-4) it presaged that the match was heading more towards a 5-2 favorable towards Huelva than the 3-4 corner. or 4-3 from Huelva to leave the second leg more open.

Finally, in individual duels number 1, Huelva’s supremacy became noticeable after two convincing victories. The first, the victory of Daniela Gonda that allowed IES La Orden to win the match (11-3, 11-4, 7-11), and finally, Pablo Abián who beat Thomas Fourcade in three sets (11-6, 11-2, 11-2) After the match, Antonio Molina declared that “it’s a very tough stick for us because we didn’t expect this result. We were very clear that equality was going to be great, but once again the balance has become too unbalanced for us. We have wasted the field factor in a resounding way, practically leaving the tie in the hands of Recreativo IES La Orden”. Regarding the decisive duels, the corner coach commented: “The first match of the mixed doubles has killed us, and although we have surpassed the remaining two doubles well, we knew that the mixed deficit was going to be too much to face some individual ones that we still cannot take out with The Order”. Regarding the second leg, Molina believes that “it’s going to be a more complicated game if possible due to the rival’s advantage, but as long as there are chances we’re going to fight it. We have to correct that mixed doubles, because if we go 3-0 out of the doubles the options will be a little more. We are going to continue asking the fans because, although it is very difficult, we are going to go all out and try to put a little pressure on at home”.

The return match will be held next Saturday at 5:30 p.m. in the Fernando Martín Pavilion in San José de La Rinconada, in a meeting where the corner players will try the difficult machada of disturbing an IES La Orden that another year plays with the fingertips the title of champion of the TOP10 IBERDROLA League.
