Voltregà Movento Stern to Face Porto Fidelidade in Continental Cup Final
The Voltregà Movento Stern team will compete in the final of the Continental Cup against Porto Fidelidade this Sunday. They secured their spot after defeating Valongo Colquimica, another Portuguese team, in the second semi-final. Gerard Teixidó scored twice, while Alex Rodriguez and Eric Vargas also contributed with goals in the 4-0 victory.
Catalan team Voltregà Movento Stern, who is hosting the tournament at the Pavelló Municipal d’Esports Victorià Oliveras de la Riva de Sant Hipòlit de Voltregà, took the lead after five minutes with a direct free kick converted by Gerard Teixidó (1-0).
