The University of Alicante's female indoor soccer team gets promoted to the Honour Division
Alicante, 13th June 2011
With a final score of Bilbo Tecuni 2 - University of Alicante 4, the players of the female indoor soccer team of the University of Alicante sentenced their promotion to the Honour Division, prevailing on the favourite team in the qualifying round. After a brilliant season marked by success, the team led by Carlos Navarro got it deserved but unexpected rise after its second year in the Silver Division.
Both for the players and for the coaching staff, the feat seemed to have reached the promotion playoffs, so the taste of success has been even sweeter.
The match, held on Saturday, 11th June, was controlled throughout by the university team and although at the break they reached 2-2 with a comeback of Bilbao team, during the second part the UA took the game with long possessions that the Bilbo tried to surprise with quick counterattacks. The meeting was attended by a part of the Alicante fans, among which we found the Vice President for Extracurricular Activities, Josefina Bueno, who congratulated and thanked the athletes who have managed to carry the name of our University to the top of the competition.
