Recreativo IES La Orden has won the league title of the highest category of national badminton despite losing to CB Rinconada Sevilla (3-2) after making good the 5-2 they brought from the first leg, played in Huelva. The team from Huelva revalidates Iberdrola’s Top10, which they already achieved last year against the same opponent.
The Sevillian team had conspired for the comeback and for a few moments they could have dreamed of it, but finally they had to surrender to the evidence. The mixed doubles was again the most important point and fell on the side of Recre.
In that match, the locals Claudia Leal and Tom Wolfenden lost in three sets, the same as in the first leg. The Rinconada player continued without finding sensations, and both Pablo Abián and Haideé Ojeda took advantage of the occasion to put their eighth title on track (8-11, 9-11, 6-11).
Before, in the male and female double duels, Rinconada took the lead with two valuable victories, although with a little more emotion than in the first leg. With the same pairings on both teams, Jaume Pérez and Tom Wolfenden defeated Alberto Perals and Alejandro Pérez in five sets (11-5, 9-11, 11-7, 7-11, 11-6). Bea Corrales and Claudia Leal overcame their match in four sets, repeating the same script as in the first leg (11-9, 11-6, 4-11 and 11-8).
CB Rinconada, with few options, had to win the first two singles to get out alive towards the last singles and give the final a historic emotion. Carlos Piris recovered from his match in the first leg and won in four tight sets against Alberto Perals (11-9, 4-11, 11-4, 11-10), giving the momentary 3-1 score to the corner players.
Great match between Bea Corrales and Telma Santos
Bea Corrales and Telma Santos played the title option for Huelva or to continue the fight by the Sevillian team. And such was the equality, that the match was decided by a single point. The Portuguese player from La Orden would end up taking the match at the last point, which was played toss or toss, and whoever won it would take the match (5-11, 11-7, 10-11, 11-5, 10 -eleven).
“We have had a great tournament. Reaching one more final is not easy. It is clear that not having been able to win the title leaves a bad taste in your mouth, but again we have to value the fact of seeing how far we have come. We are a people fighting against cities like Oviedo, Valencia, Huelva, Grana… and that makes us see how difficult it is what we do year after year,” he pointed out. the coach of CB Rinconada, Antonio Molina.
