It took a ruthless and exquisite CD Torrevieja less than a quarter of the game to demoralise and knock the stuffing out of their visitors. It started in the most remarkable fashion with an 11th minute free kick inside Torry's own half. With the Acero keeper off his line, Ruben Suarez quickly blazed the ball fully sixty metres, placing it to perfection. Álex back pedalled madly but the execution was precise and the ground exploded with appreciation as the ball rippled the back of the net to set the home team on their way to a fourth consecutive win.
Higon and Lewis combined to make it two six minutes later, both sharp as tacks in the box, but both having their snap shots blocked by last ditch clearances. Lewis took the final dig, again the ball being blocked on the line but this time deflecting off Joselu for a techincal own goal. Lewis made no mistake on 21 minutes after fabulous work from Cesar who danced past defenders down the left, looked up before placing a superb cross just where Lewis wanted it. The young striker darted forward then glanced the ball high and behind him and well out of reach of Álex in the Acero goal.
This was a team performance to savour. Passing was accurate, tackles were well timed and effective and there was desire in every move. It is becoming a major headache to know who to start in matches as the talent within the sqaud is immense. Fans are entralled at recent displays and Sundays cannot come around quick enough until they see their side back in action.
Acero got physical in the second period in an attempt to blunt the Torry attack. Lewis came in for some heavy attention and had to retire with an injured knee. The referee was very good and punished the guilty, though his caution for Carrasco who jumped on the pitch, then back off, when coming on as a substitute was ridiculous. As soon as Carrasco realised he had not be authorised to proceed, he bounced back over the touchline, but silliness prevailed and he got a yellow for entering the field of play without permission! Happy New Year to you too Mr Referee!
Torry added a fourth after superb work from Higon and a delightful lob from Quintero, who once more showed he has a real eye for goal and notched his fourth of the season. Acero usually score on the road, but this was one of the rare times they did not. However, it took two world class saves from Miguel to preseve the clean sheet and move Torry into positive goal difference, nudging the team up into 13th place in the league table.
Torry sit eight points behind play off placed Ontinyent who they play this Sunday at the Vicente Garcia, seeking their fifth consecutive win and closing that gap to five points. This team is more than capable of doing so and marching up the places in style. The lads are flying and plan to fly higher still.
