The second half has started also with an intense game and to the minute 33 Armengol has surprised Llaverola -that was waiting for a pass on the second pole- to make a strong shot on the first pole for advancing Blanes with the 2-1. Little afterwards Blanes would have been able to sentence, but Llaverola has halted a direct foul of Armengol. This has given strength to the Catalans that have reacted with a goal of Selva (2-2) and a great goal of Pelicano that has shot from the center of the field and has entered for the set square. At two minutes for the end Brichs has sentenced with the 4-3
