CF LORCA DEPORTIVA 0 MAZARRON FC 2
MAZARRON’S march up the league table continued with a 2-0 away victory at Lorca Deportiva.
Despite being in command for most of the game Mazarron had to endure intense pressure for a 15 minute spell in the second half during which goalkeeper, Jose Iker, made a number of outstanding saves to keep them in the game.
They had started brightly with Cecilio and Jose Ruben linking up intelligently on a number of occasions and Santi producing some defence splitting passes from midfield. One of these found Miguelon on the right but his cross was punched clear by the Lorca goalkeeper.
After 17 minutes a superb chip from Jose Ruben on the right deceived everyone, but the ball rebounded to safety from the cross bar. Santi then put Ruben clear but his run was blocked by two Lorca defenders. After 30 minutes more excellent play by Cecilio saw Ruben break away again only to see his shot stopped by the keeper.
Lorca had been restricted to sporadic breakaways but could have scored two minutes before half time with a header that went just over. Mazarron replied immediately with a fiercely struck shot by Cecilio which was well saved by the Lorca keeper.
Alfonso and Edu replaced Miguelon and Diego at half time but it was Lorca who took the game to Mazarron in the early stages of the second half.
Jose Iker made four superb saves in the space of 15 minutes before Mazarron began to take control again. Jose Ruben went close on a number of occasions and Cecilio headed wide from a Santi free kick.
Poyato replaced the tiring Santi in midfield after 62 minutes and opened the scoring ten minutes later. Ruben’s left wing run ended with an excellent ball to the far post which deceived the keeper and fell to Cecilio whose cross was headed back into the far corner of the net by Poyato to give Mazarron the lead.
After 85 minutes a free kick on the right was dummied by Cecilio and Diego raced in at the far post to turn the ball home for Mazarron’s second goal and make it three wins and a draw from the last four games. They move up to 10th position in the league.
Mazarron’s next game is at home to Olimpico de Totana at the Estadio Municipal on Sunday, kick off 4.30 pm. Admission is €4 with juveniles free.
