LANZAROTE 4 CD RACQUI SAN ISIDRO 0
The Rojillos put in an almighty performance of attacking football with Lanzarote striker Rosmen bagging all four goals which completely overwhelmed the Tenerife side.
Going into this match with four straight defeats Lanzarote were determined to end this poor run and did so in emphatic style albeit against a side one place below them in the league table.
Lanzarote began the game dominating possession but it wasn’t until the 12th minute before the Rojillos made the keeper work. A cross was centred and man of the match to be Rosmen headed goal bound but the keeper produced a good save tipping the ball away for a corner.
The Rojillos took the lead midway through the first half. A free kick from the left to the far post was headed across the goal by Javi Betancort and Rosmen stroked the ball home for his first of the afternoon and give Lanzarote a 1-0 lead.
Only four minutes later and the Tenerife side had a marvellous opportunity to level the score when Taja handled inside the area and they were awarded a clear penalty. Midfielder Aday struck the ball low and hard to his right but the Lanzarote keeper made a terrific one handed save to keep his side in front.
This was probably the pivotal moment in the match as the Rojillos defence tightened up and that was to be the last good chance the Tenerife side were to have. The Rojillos went into the break with just the single goal as an advantage.
Lanzarote came out for the second half and you could sense they had moved up a couple of gears. In the 49th minute the battling Echedey broke through the last line of defence and struck low only to see the keeper palm his effort away, Rosmen alert as ever followed up and with some work still to do fired the ball home to give his side a 2-0 lead.
Five minutes later and a long ball by the Rojillos keeper was chested down by Rosmen so he could turn towards goal and planted a right foot drive past the Tenerife keeper to complete his hat trick and give Lanzarote a deserved 3-0 lead.
Just before the hour mark and Rosmen completed his and his sides scoring with a header from a corner to make the final score 4-0.
By now San Isidro´s defence was in pieces and whilst manager Adolfo Perez´s made some changes he failed to bring on British boy Ryan Macphee. There was a half hour of play left and each opportunity the 21 year old striker has been given he has impressed as he did just days before scoring away in La Palma after coming on from the bench. This was extremely disappointing as his pace and determination is what was needed to inflict further damage on what was an already impressive score line.
It would be hard to criticize the Rojillos manager especially after such a superb performance. The passing from Jotha, the fighting display from Echedey, the trickery and pace of Toñito not to mention the clinical finishing of Rosmen were all too much for the Tenerife side.
Next Sunday Lanzarote travel to Tenerife to play 7th placed side Las Zocas.
