Victorious La Vila into play-off semi finals


FOLLOWING THEIR pulsating 32-21, quarter final victory over Babyauto Zarautz last Sunday, the men of La Villajoyosa Rugby Club march into a semi-final double against CRC Pozuelo, with the first leg taking place this coming Sunday May 7, in Madrid.

Already ahead 34-22 from the first leg of the quarter final against Zarautz, La Vila, playing at home in front of a packed stadium of vociferous and expectant supporters, overcame early nerves and a second half comeback to seal a memorable victory, by 23 points over the two legged fixture.

The final try by Guillem Carrion put the icing on the cake for the team and sent the crowd into a frenzy of excitement.

La Vila remain unbeaten in all fixtures throughout this incredible season, having won all their league games, to finish top of Division of Honor B, and now both matches of their quarter final.

They now face a two legged semi- final against CRC Pozuelo, who did not have such an easy time in their two quarter-finals.

Pozuelo lost the first leg away to CPC Les Abelles 26-29, but managed to win the second leg at home by 26-20, squeezing through into the semi-finals by a slender 3 point margin over the two legs.

However the boys from la Vila will not be over confident in the upcoming matches against Pozuelo and know everything is to play for both teams.

Following the first leg in Madrid this Sunday,La Vila return to their home stadium on the next Sunday May 14, hoping to have a lead intact.

After their stunning victories against Zarautz, La Vila are one step closer to their ultimate goal of a return to the Spanish Rugby Premiership.

Should they be victorious in the semi-finals against Pozuelo, La Vila will face the winners of the other semi-finals, RC Hospitalet or UBU Colina Clinic in the two-legged play-off final on the last two weekends of May.
