Apadv beats Adesul and wins Series B of blind football — CBDV

Sao Paulo-SP

A Apadv (Association of Parents, Friends and Visually Impaired), from São Paulo, defeated the Often-CE (Associação D’efficiency Superando Limites), from Ceará, on penalties (2 to 1), after a draw in 1 a 1 in normal time, this Thursday (7), and won the Brazilian Championship – Series B blind football. It was the first national title for the São Paulo team since the CBDV (Brazilian Confederation of Sports for the Visually Impaired) started to manage the sport in 2011.

Both finalists had already guaranteed access to the sport’s elite. The third place granted via Series B went to Uniace-DF (Union of Blind Athletes of the Federal District), which also got the better of penalties (3 to 2), over Cedemac-MA (Centro Desportivo Maranhense de Cegos), after the 0 a 0 within the regulatory 30 minutes.

“It’s my first title with the Apadv shirt, too. So, in addition to the historical importance it has for the club, it has a very big importance for me, as an athlete”, highlighted the winger Anael, 17 years old, who scored one of the two penalties for the São Paulo team – Marco Antônio scored the other. “I’m very proud of my teammates. They’re young, just like me, and we’re always together. We’re a group, a team. My penalty wasn’t just me who took it. You can be sure it has the influence of everyone my companions”, he added.

Part of the Apadv squad has been part of Brazil’s youth teams in recent years. The mix with the English experience Roy Turnham, 38 years old, ended up being fundamental from the first to the last game. The British athlete scored the goal in normal time and ended up winning the trophy. Top scorercom six in all. But he was unable to receive him at the awards ceremony because he suffered a head-on collision with his own teammate and was receiving medical attention during the party. Alefe ended up representing Roy at the ceremony.
