Whilst the U18 were being crowned the champions of Spain, the U16 players were challenging Puerto Santa Maria for the Andalucian title. This was a hugely important match as the winners would then have the right to enter the U16 national championships which will be held in Marbella on the 18th and 19th of May.
Marbella made the journey to the beautiful region of Puerto de Santa Maria, Cadiz to play the winners of the Sevilla league with both teams keen to take the spoils and earn the right to represent Andalucia in the national tournament.
Again, the match was a tense affair, with Marbella sneaking an 11-0 halftime lead.
After the break, Alexander ‘Chuqi’ Cruz ran in an 80m interception to try to put Marbella ahead. It provided the impetus they needed to start running the ball with confidence.
They closed the game 33-0 victors and Champions of Andalucia.
