                           Almost a Win

It is now 20 points won from the last eight games, which is indeed play off football form. However, it felt like two precious points dropped after glorious opportunities were spurned by a lively and creative Torry outfit, who came from one behind to take a share of the spoils.
Alzira had only experienced defeat once at home this term, that to Crevillente by a single goal. With Torry not having conceded in their perevious five, there was plenty of optimism for a further success and closing the gap on the table leaders.
Depite a few early flourishes, where debutant Prieto showed his attacking prowess, clear cut chances were hard to create on a bumpy pitch, which mitigated against Torry's free flowing passing game. The number of passes that went astray were inordinate and frustration was evident as the half came to a close. But before doing so, Torry fell victim to their achilles heel this term - a set piece move.
With two minutes to the interval Alzira won a corner on the right. It was pinged hard to the back post where skipper Joan met it with precision. His firm contact fairly exploded the ball into the net before Miguel had a chance to deny it. Torry must improve at such set pieces as they are now looking vulnerable on such instances. Certainly Selvas and Jorge were missing through injuries, but with Martin, Matej and Quintero present, there was sufficient ability and know how to deal with these threats.
Torry got their act more together in the second period and dominated play. Prieto moved into the middle, with Lewis occupying the left wing position. Passing was much better, though there was still a tendency to play the ball towards their own goal in order to retain possession - and then do just the opposite - lose it! Nonetheless, it was a much more imposing performance in the second half and Torry created a fistful of chances. Splitting the defence easil;y Lewis, Suarez and substitute Brani were all clean through on goal with only the keeper in their way, but all three failed to take advantage.
It was Higon who showed the necessary composure to level the game in the 49th minute. Torry decimated the Alzira defence with fast accurate play and the ball was delivered to Higon on the right hand side of the box. He cut in and shot hard and low into the corner of the net for a thoroughly deserved equaliser.
Prieto had a screamer from just outside the box which whizzed past the post, when it looked set to be a fairy tale debut for the new man. Carrasco played a superb one two with Suarez who hammered the ball toward goal only to find a last ditch lunge blocking his shot. Torry were by far the superior side in this second period and gave their Torry Army travelling fans much to enjoy. The winner would not come and Torry remain in 9th place, now six points adrift of the play off fourth placed teams, of which there are three, sitting on 39 points.
One of those, Villareal C visit on Sunday for a high noon showdown at the Vicente Garcia, a match which is designated a Dia del Club, with season tickets suspended and all paying at the gate. Fans are asked to come a little earlier than usual, as there will likely be queues at the ticket purchase gates. If Torry are to force their way back into play off contention, then three points will be needed.
