19th March 2012

 With eleven minutes remaining of normal time the game was poised at 1-0 to the home side.Who could have foretold of the mayhem that was about to occur. The Rojillos having only won once and scored just eight times on the road this season bagged their fourth and winning goal in the 96th minute.

The match began evenly balanced with the Rojillos just edging possession. In the 19th minute a strike from Jotha grazed the woodwork of the Sporting goal. A few minutes later the ever wanting Toñito darted down the right wing and centred for Rosmen, the tall striker hit the target but the Sporting keeper Raúl produced a great save to keep the game scoreless.

As the half progressed so did the confidence of the Gran Canarian side. In the 33rd minute good work from winger Julio who struck the ball low across the area to the far left post and on hand to fire the ball home was midfielder Kevin to give his side a 1-0 advantage.

The balanced of play evened out over the remainder of the first period as Lanzarote went into the break with their traditional away score line of being a goal down.

The second half of this match came alive in the 65th minute with the introduction of the talented and hugely experienced Gustavo García. The midfielder has been involved in many of Lanzarote´s fine Copa del Rey feats and played for Las Palmas in Segunda A (The Championship) completely changed the course of the match.

In the 73rd minute defender Yeray Rodríguez picked up his second yellow card and Lanzarote were forced to play the remainder of the match with ten men.

Despite this and in the space of four minutes Gustavo turned the score upside down from a free kick and then a neat strike that sent Lanzarote in front 1-2. Five minutes later and the home side drew level from their leading marksman Ayoze. In the 89th minute Gustavo fired in his hat trick via the penalty spot to restore his sides lead at 2-3.

In the fourth minute into added on time the home side believed that they had salvaged a point following a converted penalty by Abraham which levelled parity at three apiece.

In the 96th minute and with almost the last kick of the match Venezuelan Alex Yunes stole the show with a fine strike to win the match for the Rojillos and earn three priceless points.

Lanzarote have only jumped up one position to eighth in the league table but are now only four points from the play offs. Next week they will have a further opportunity to move forward when they face a home match against rock bottom Charco del Pino.
