Good ball control

12th September 2011

The Rojillos (reds) fought out a tough encounter in Tenerife with both sides showing why they are among the favourites for the Tercera (fourth tier) league title. The game may have remained scoreless but neither side were short on passion.

The first action in a tight match fell to Lanzarote after five minutes. Vladi centred a ball to Rosmen and the tall striker’s effort was deflected away by a defender for a corner.

As the game progressed so did the dominance of the home side, however the Rojillos defence and midfield stood firm as the only moments of danger came from set pieces.

Lanzarote´s best moments came in the final third of the first half. In the 33rd minute defender Ángel Gil reached the by line and crossed for Rosmen whose header was well saved by ex Lanzarote keeper Marino. Seconds later the keeper who had spent 13 years with the Rojillos showed his reflexes were still intact as he saved superbly denying Rosmen once more. The Rojillos finished the half on the front foot but realised it was going to be difficult to break the deadlock.

The home side began the second half the better of the two sides but the Rojillo defence was equal to the task as the Lanzarote keeper Santi Lampón was rarely threatened. The league leaders then ended the game with a flurry during their best spell of the match but Lanzarote dug deep and earned a well deserved away point.

The home match this week against C.D. Vera has been moved forward and will now be played on Saturday 16th at 4pm in Arrecife.
