Torrevieja’s handball team paid a successful visit to the Centro de Tecnificación de Vila-Real at the weekend coming away with a hard earned victory that keeps them within touching distance of promotion to the Division of Honor B.
The win, the Saltmen’s second in recent weeks against promotion chasing rivals, was achieved on the back of a solid defensive display led by some great work from Salva García in the goal.
The final result of 27-20, together with the other results played out on the day, reduces the gap at the top of the table to just three points with seven games of the season still remaining.
This coming weekend will see Torrevieja visit the Cecilio Gallego, Handbol Sant Joan, who currently sit in eighth place.
