Albacete Balompié will have to play the 'play off' in Galicia if they want to go up to the Second Division, after this Sunday they said goodbye to their direct promotion options by losing 0-1 at the 'Carlos Belmonte' against Nástic de Tarragona. With two games to go, the La Mancha side are third with 64 points, two behind Villarreal's subsidiary and four behind FC Andorra. It makes me more angry to think that 'Alba' was co-leader two weeks ago and that both Andorra and Villarreal B punctured on Saturday.
Rubén de la Barrera's men curdled a leaden first half, in which there were even whistles from the fans. Going through changing rooms spurred the team, which came out with a different air.
The youth squad Dani González replaced Emiliano Gómez and had a good chance, as did Manu Fuster, who crashed a ball into the post. However, the goal from La Mancha did not come and, already in added time, Nástic took the game in a shot by Del Campo that, to top it off, went wide and touched Emmanuel's knee to sneak into the net.
On the other hand, Amiab Albacete was proclaimed champion of the Wheelchair Basketball Division of Honor League for the first time in its history after beating Amivel on the last day of Saturday (53-68), highlighting the performance of the British Kyle Marsh with 21 points. The team from La Mancha, led by Esther Jiménez, already won their first European Champions Cup a week ago by beating Ilunion in Germany.
