Happy Holidays!
 
CD Torrevieja sent their fans into the Christmas break as happy as could be, winning their third game in a row. It was a hard fought victory in a game the referee certainly saw as a battle, admonishing players left, right and centre to the tune of twelve cautions. Martin received two of these and thus was dismissed in the 55th minute, leaving his colleagues to dig deep, out numbered for most of the second half.
 
Despite their lowly league position, Jove were one of the group's teams in form, so Torry knew they would need to be at the top of their game to leave with all three points and perhaps start to put a little space between themselves and the relegation haunted sides just below them. Both sides were positive, preferring to run directly at each other, putting defenders under pressure and on the back foot.
 
Torry held the edge in this department with blistering pace from Lewis, Cesar, Higon and Luis Carlos. Jove were marshalled at the back by veteran Noe Pamarot, who had trained with the Salineros last season. The former Spurs and Sounthampton defender was calm and composed, until Lewis set about him, then he was nervous and slashing widly at his clearances. He got cautioned when Lewis put him under pressure and he played the ball out for a throw, but them prevented Lewis lifting the ball to take a quick throw in. His card was marked and he was soon after substituted.
 
The all important winning goal came in the 16th minute and who else but Lewis. He had already worried the Jove defence by out jumping them for every high ball played his way and thus all were acutely aware of his spring and exquisite timing. As the ball was pumped into the six yard area, goalkeeper and defender both made a beeline for it. Lewis timed his leap much better and reached the ball before they all came together in a heap. Lewis' momentum took him and the ball goalside and all he had to do was ram it into the empty net.
 
That is four goals in his last three games and the 21 year old Brit is in sparkling form. But everyone in this side is working exceptionally hard, with outstanding performances throughout the eleven. Miguel pulled off a couple of sensational saves, whilst Vicente blocked a shot towards the end having run like a gazelle from one end of the pitch to the other to get there. On this form and with this effort, it is clear that the team can beat any other side in this group.
 
There need be no slip ups or excuses when Torry return to action after the holidays at home against rock bottom club Acero, who only have one win to their name in their 18 outings this term to date. They have endured some heavy defeats and may well recall that they lost this corresponding fixture 6-1 last term. That was Pedreno's first game in charge and he will be delighted if he can emulate that scintillating success.
 
The match is back at the Vicente Garcia, following the hard graft that has been undertaken there to get the playing surface back into tip top condition. As it is still family holiday time, the game will kick of at 11.45, thus allowing fans to enjoy the game and be home in plenty of time to enjoy their family lunch - hopefully with Torry having put yet another smile on their faces.
