                 Simply Superb!
Boss Pedreño got it spot on with his team selection and tactics and his plans were executed perfectly by his players. It was an outstanding performance by everyone in every position. Borriol had only suffered the one loss at home this term and used their narrow pitch and strong tall players to good effect. They troubled Torry most when they launched high balls into the box, a tactic they deployed from every throw in, as well as from open play.
Metej, Jorge and Selvas were colossal in dealing with these threats, but make no mistake, each player rose to the ocassion and covered themselves in glory. It looked as though Suarez was going to find difficulty getting any space on this compact pitch to weave his magic. Play was tight and opponents upon one another quickly. He and Carrasco moved about the pitch seeking out a yard of freedom, whilst Lewis worked tirelessly running into space and challenging for every ball tossed his way.
Vicente and Luis Carlos pushed forward at every given opportunity, with the back three well able to guard the main body of defence, more than ably backed up by the unbeatable Miguel. Burguillos captained the side with industry and 100% comittment to the cause and was almost rewarded with a goal for his non stop performance. Quintero was played in midfield and busied himself breaking up attacks and offering an important block for the final line of defence.
The only goal of the game came in the 39th minute when Suarez would not be dislodged from the ball. He feinted and swerved his way into space, saw that Lewis made a diagonal run into the box and trundled the ball into his path. With a striker's instinct, Lewis knew where the goal was and as soon as he reached the ball, struck it first time beyond the keeper and into the net. It was sweet to watch and even sweeter to savour.
Borriol created chances and mis-kicked a couple in front of goal in the first period, but stepped up a gear in the second to find the equaliser and preserve their excellent home record. But despite their possession advantage, it was Torry who had by far and away the best chances. Lewis made another quicksilver run into the box and with again only Edi in goal to beat, he couldn't get the ball under control as he attempted to drag it round him.
An equally good chance then fell to Burguillos who never stopped running all afternoon. This time he surged forward and was rewarded with a superb pass into his stride, As Edi rushed out to close him down, the skipper lobbed the ball over him, but wide of the target. Carrasco was fuming after Suarez was fouled and the referee blew his whistle instantaneously, just as Carrasco burst through with the ball and free from all defenders. Normally officialis give themselves a few seconds to see if any advantage accrues, but this time it did not happen, much to Torry's annoyance.
It took an amazing fingertip save from Miguel in the dying minutes to deflect the ball on to the bar and away for a corner to ensure the Torry win and move them up to 11th place in the league table, ahead of the visit of leaders Saguntino on Sunday. Five wins and a draw from the last six hames will worry the visitors, especially if Torry can reproduce this effort and performance.
