Hurricanes were up next as they took on Seleccion
Balear. We had two teams who had tasted defeat
in Round 1 and would surely be looking to bounce
back as quickly as possible in Round 2.
Balear did now have their full complement of
players and looked a more organized and more
settled team than they had done against ZVC
Indoor Gent and it was they who took the lead
in the first half through Paco. After the break
they doubled their lead when Juan Garcia found
the back of the net.
2-0 you could be forgiven for thinking the game
was over – not at all. A Martin Weltman penalty
reduced the deficit to 2-1 and there was almost
an equalizer from the re-start but Seleccion
Balear scrambled it away. There was a point
for the taking for Contejus Hurricanes but Seleccion
Balear held on as time ran away from the English
score, 2-1. Seleccion Balear were off and running
with their first victory of the day. For Contejus
Hurricanes the wait would go on.
