                                                                                                                   What a Finish!
 
You have to go back to February for Torry's last defeat at the Vicente Garcia. That was a calamitous 1-0 loss to now 2B side Levante who are joint top presently. However, after 90 minutes play, Torry trailed 0-2 and looked like a team destined for relegation rather than promotion! It was late strikes from Juanfran and Quintero that saved the day and saw the Borriol manager toss his shoe halfway across the pitch in utter frustration.
 
Well may manager Cuesta express his emotion such, as his team had played almost the entire second half with ten men, after goalkeeper Quique was dismissed for wiping out Juanfran just outside the box on 48 minutes. Borriol were one up at this stage with new signing Victor Pino making no mistake to net on 23 minutes. The visitors dominated play, worked like Trojans and were extremely well organised at the back. No matter what Torry did, they could not break down an efficient Borriol back line.
 
After their enforced reduction to ten men, they played a counter attacking game, using the pace of their strike force to create mayhem at the back for the Salineros. One such break on 70 minutes saw Pino double his and his team's advantage. Fans were amazed and upset, especially following last week's drubbing in Ontinyent. They were confused by the line up as clearly several players continued their under performance from last week, and this seemed more of the same. Given that some pace is required in the defence, here was utter bewilderment amongst fans as to why the physically strong, agile and efficient Metej was again not playing. 
 
Five minutes of time added on proved to be the salvation for Torry. The hard working, never say die Juanfran got his just rewards when forcing home from inside the box in the 92nd minute. He cared not for celebration, instead he raced into the goal and gathered up the ball, tearing back to the centre circle with it to get started again. Torry had not given up as manager Pedreño deployed everyone in an attacking last gasp effort to salvage the game.
 
The equaliser came from central defender Quintero, who received the ball eighteen yards from goal and rifled a vicious low drive into the corner of the net. Cue relief busting cheers from the crowd and shoe tossing from the opposition bench! Fans looked quizzically at each other, seeking confirmation that Torry were level and mouthing the believable query could they possibly find a winner?
 
There no time for that, but it felt like a win, preserving Torry's unbeaten home record under Pedreño and at last giving fans the belief that this indeed might still prove to be a season of joy. It was joy for Tony at Quesada Fish and Chips whose company slip was plucked out of the cup by counsellor for sport for the town, Pablo Samper, for his business to take pride of place on the new Adidas team strip for this season. As soon as the artwork is in hand, then the new kit, fully adorned with the sponsors name, will be ready to rock and roll. Maybe this is what has been missing in order to really get the side clicking!
 
One point from two games at least lifts Torry off the bottom of the table. It is to be hoped that this is just the start of a full resurgence.
