It’s triple crown for Sporting Clube de Portugal! The Portuguese confirm their supremacy in the European Rink Hockey by winning in the rink of Mollerussa against Lleida Llista, winner of the WS Europe Cup. The European champions won against the Catalans 3-1 but the game, especially in the first half, was very balanced. Only in the end of the first half Almeida unlocked the result. Lleida missed a direct shot and a penalty and some important opportunities in front of the opposing goalkeeper. In the second half Sporting continued to raise the pace until Gonzalo Romero scored the goal in speed for 2-0. At the 14th and 19th two new chances for the Catalans on direct shooting but still Girao says no, certainly one of the best of the game. Souto scores the third for the victory. Sporting also missed two direct shots before Souto’s decisive goal in the 21st. In the final minutes the goal deserved to the hosts with captain Andreu Tomas who overcomes Girao for 3-1.
