LANZAROTE 3 U.D. GOMERA 1
The Rojillos made hard work of what should have been a comfortable victory over a side that are doomed to relegation, with just six games remaining U.D. Gomera are 15 points from safety.
All began well with winger Toñito firing home from the edge of the box to give Lanzarote a 1-0 lead in the 5th minute. The visitors have just earned one point away in the entire season and it never looked as though they would return to La Gomera extending their points tally.
The game lacked class as it seemed Lanzarote fell into the trap of playing the same poor quality of football as their opponents. The Rojillos had further opportunities to increase the lead before the break especially through league leading goal scorer Rosmen who failed miserably with a good chance late in the first half.
Ten minutes into the second period and the game got what it needed, as the Rojillo defence took a nap from a free kick, the ball was whipped over to the far post and midfielder Alfredo was on hand to nod home and the level the score at one apiece.
At last Lanzarote began to wake up. Five minutes after conceding and manager Adolfo Pérez brought on British striker Ryan Macphee. Instantly life was restored as the hungry 21 year old was eager to impress his manager to gain a starting place for next week.
Lanzarote were in complete control of the match but in the 76th minute the temperamental Toñito picked up his second yellow card and Lanzarote were reduced to 10 men.
Two minutes later and Rosmen was hacked down in the box for a clear penalty. The defender being the last man was also sent off as both teams continued with 10 men. Rosmen converted the spot kick to make the score 2-1 and bag his 18th league goal this season.
In the 90th minute a cross from the right was headed home in style from Ryan to finish the scoring at 3-1. This may not have been a classic of a game but with the sun shining and the beer flowing the three points which lift the Rojillos up one place to 15th spot are very welcome.
Next week Lanzarote have a tough away match versus third placed Gran Canarian side CF Estrella.
