UD Lanzarote: 0-1min 35 Carlos Rosa, 0-2min 92 Alex Yunes
2nd November 2011
A goal in each half was enough to see the Rojillos claim their first away victory of the season albeit against the league´s bottom club.
Lanzarote dominated the majority of the match but the Tenerife side almost took the lead in the 10th minute. A corner was met by defender Airám whose header was goal bound until Rojillos midfielder Sixto cleared the danger on the goal line.
Lanzarote then began to pile on the pressure; striker Rosmen forced a good save from the keeper then in the 35th minute the Rojillos found a way through. Echedey passed a short corner kick to Ángel Gil, the defender curled in a cross into the six yard area which was met by centre back Carlos Rosa who stroked the ball home via a deflection off a defender giving his side a 0-1 advantage.
In their last two matches the Rojillos have taken the lead only to lose on both occasions so the Lanzarote manager Fabián Rivero, was still unable to breathe a sigh of relief. Lanzarote pressed for the remainder of the first half but could not find the second goal cushion. The teams headed into the interval with Lanzarote just a single goal to the good.
Ten minutes into the second half and Rosmen struck a post with an effort. The Lanzarote striker broke his goal scoring drought a few days earlier but the jinx seems to continue as last season’s leading goal scorer hit the woodwork for the umpteenth time in this campaign.
Nevertheless, the Rojillos dominated as the visitors posed little threat but the game was only put to bed in the second minute of stoppage time. The Rojillos broke from a Charco del Pino attack and striker Alex Yunes tucked the ball away to guarantee all three points making the final score 0-2.
A welcome victory for the Rojillos but again the problem of not finishing off their chances was evident. Centre forward Alex Yunes is now the clubs top scorer this season with just three goals following his injury time strike. The two top clubs in the league have both scored more than double what the Rojillos have managed though defensively only two other teams have a better record than the Lanzarote.
This Sunday Lanzarote are at home with a 12 noon kick off against Las Zocas. The Tenerife side are in 8th place, three points above the Rojillos.
