   Costly misses

The contest with the well drilled and hugely profesional Villareal C was always going to be tough. Torry had battled hard for a 0-0 draw in Villareal in September, but now with a good run behind them - undefeated in eight - it was expected that the win was possible, even if that meant inflicting what would only have been a third loss of the season for Villareal C.
 
There were two main reasons why Torry did not win this match. The first was Joan in the visitor's goal was in scintillating form, saving at point blank range and punching shots away with invincibility. When he was vulnerable he enjoyed the double advantage of resolute defenders around him, allied to some indifferent finishing from the Torry attackers.
 
The resolute defendng of Villareal C was evident by the refereee's notebook, which recorded seven cautions for this combatative outfit, which included two for Raba who was duly dismissed in the 54th minute. Captain Burguillos and Vicente collected the Torry yellow cards. It was not a bruising contest, though maybe Suarez would disagree with that, as he was dished out illegal punishment more than most. He is always in the thick of things, with his collegaues looking for him to create the dangerous plays.
 
Torry did much of this but Higon firing into the side netting, Prieto needing more time to control the ball and Lewis not just getting the run of the ball, all contributed to a rare Torry blank. In the first half, both Higon and Luis Carlos smashed fiercesome drives fom the edge of the box on target, but Joan denied them with fabulous saves. Villareal C were fast and dangerous on the break, but Martin and Matej ably handled all they threw at them. Miguel had less to do in this match than others, but when called into action, he was safe and sound.
 
Luis Carlos was the Pinada Blinds sponsored Man of the Match. He forged forward willingly, ghosting past opponents and delivering some senational crosses which went begging. Prieto and Higon looked odds on to take advantage of a couple of these, but luck was not with them when it mattered. Rafa Gomez brought another dimension to the game when he was introduced, showing that he retains all of his guile and deception. He added to Villareal's worry, but as before with others, he could not find that telling goal.
 
Although it is now unbeaten in the last nine matches for Torry, it is disconcerting that it is only two points collected from a posible six in the last two games. The defence is doing it's job, but once more, although chances are being created, the lack of conversion is emerging once again as the elephant in the playing field. It is hard to score at this level when much of the emphasis is on not conceding and maybe coming away with a draw, but Torry need to return to goalscoring form, else play off hopes will be dashed for yet another season.
