CD Torrevieja 2 - 0 Orihuela CF
When the young Croatian, on as a substitute, ran on to fellow countryman Matej’s header he looked like he had nowhere to go.  But with a sharp change of direction, a swerve of the body and a dropping of the shoulder Brani danced inside.  He entered the penalty area from the left and the Orihuela defenders did not know how to stop him.  He went past one then two, leaving the third on his backside as he smashed the ball past Emilio.  The biggest crowd of the season at Estadio Vicente Garcia lept up in the air, the drums of the Fondo Sur banging loudly than ever and airhorns going off all over the place.  The three points were going to be CD Torrevieja’s for just the second time this season, and they had been won with a goal that would have graced any game in Spain over the weekend.

Pedreno must have been pleased with the previous result, the 2-2 draw with Crevillente, as he made just three changes to the side.  Goalkeeper Oscar was restored, Cesar started in front of Juanfran and, finally, club captain Jorge was recalled to partner Quintero in the centre of defence.  The game started at a frenetic pace, befitting the pre-match billing of “Los Clasicos de Sal Part Two.”

Torrevieja got the first real break of the game.  Vicente, overlapping from right back, saw his cross handled by the Orihuela left back Franco and the referee gave the penalty.  Cesar calmly stepped up and sent the ball to the right as Emilio disappeared to the left.  The game remained even, without many chances and the second best moment of the first half involved Jorge, a fifty-fifty tackle and the resulting burst ball being kicked into the stands as a present for the young fans.  Torrevieja went in at half time holding on to their slender lead.

The second half delivered more of the same, Torrevieja clearly the more dangerous of the two sides and being driven on by a dominant display by their captain Jorge.  The big hearted leader was a rock at the heart of the defence, and even found time for one of his trademark gallops from deep running the full length of the pitch before ending his trip with a yellow card for a foul with a little bit of a chat for good measure.  Torrevieja have missed this passion in recent weeks.

As the game neared the final ten minutes Carrasco missed a point blank effort, Emilio blocking superbly.  At the other end Oscar was called into action for the first time in the match, tipping away a dangerous looking cross.  Then, with 83 minutes on the clock, Matej headed the ball wide to Brani and moments later the ground erupted.

The victory sees CD Torrevieja leap three places in the table to 14th, just 8 points off the play-offs with a lot of football still to be played.  If they can turn this mini-run into three games unbeaten next weekend away to Elche then the next home game against Castellon becomes very, very interesting indeed.

The game against Elche B, next Saturday, kicks off at 5pm and will be covered live on - Torrevieja return to Estadio Vicente Garcia on the 25th October against the most famous club in the division, Castellon.  Kick off will be at 5pm.
