Jotha guilty of a penalty miss


The Conejeros ( Lanzaroteans´s) made the short 30 minute trip on the ferry to visit the second placed Majoreros ( Fuerteventurian´s) amidst blistering heat for a Saturday 5 pm kick off and will be a little disappointed to return with just a point.

Even at 5pm the temperatures was well into the 30´s which did not help to create this match into a spectacle. Undoubtedly the best chance of the match was for the Conejeros midway through the first half.

Centre back Kamara returning from injury fed Rosmen on the edge of the box and a Corralejo defender rashly upended the Lanzarote striker and the Ref had no hesitation in awarding the visitors a clear penalty. The ever reliable Jotha stepped up and placed his shot into the left hand corner but the keeper saved with his left hand and as Rosmen pounced the keeper recovered well just conceding a corner kick to the annoyance of the tall striker.

Chances were few though the Rojillos edged possession in the first period with Corralejo´s first shot on target coming at the end of the half which the Lanzarote keeper Marco Machín comfortably dealt with.

The home side came out much stronger early in the second half and after just three minutes had a great opportunity from midfielder Héctor to go in front but his header flew inches wide of the upright.

Just after the hour mark Rosmen was put through with just the keeper to beat but the goal shy striker took far too much time and a defender cleared the danger with a timely tackle.

Both sides had one more clear chance apiece. Héctor again came close heading just wide from a corner and Lanzarote sub Lolo could have claimed all three points for his side but his strike failed to hit the target.

Both teams seemed content with a point and for the Rojillos it is a good result away from home but already they are seeing Déjà Vu from last season as they again trail league leaders SD Tenisca by eight points after only five games.

Next Sunday Lanzarote will have the opportunity to climb the league table when they host 12th placed Gran Canarian side San Pedro Mártir. Kick off time will be confirmed later in the week.
