The wheels were wobbly last weekend in Crevillente, but they came off the bus in Orihuela on Sunday with another 3-0 defeat. Once more Torry were the architects of their own demise, gifting the ball close to their own penalty box to Raul, who duly desptached it into the net past a hapless Miguel. This was in the 3rd minute of play and fuelled the belief of the hosts who began to play attractive expansive football, threatening on every attack. Torry played their usual patient passing game but failed to trouble the pony tailed Emilio in the home goal.
Torry's attacks promised much with Higon making great runs into space but rarely found by his colleagues. Lewis was a live menace down the middle but when it mattered he had little by way of immediate support. He enjoyed one glorious opportunity in the second half, but Emilio closed him down quickly and he failed to deliver the killer strike. Sanchez returned to the line up and linked play well. Always available, he continues to seek out space for himself and to make the telling incisive pass.
At half time Martin was replaced by Matej, after sustaining two broken fingers. In a ten minute spell, Orihuela had put the match beyound the visitors. A fast break down the right wing was matched in pace with a fierce low delivery met by Juanjo at the near post and he swept it home despite the close attention of the Torry defence. Then a magnificent free kick completed the scoreline, Theo arrowing it home into the top corner of the net.
Orihuela looked rampant at this stage and with a quarter of the game to go, seemed as though they might emulate their 5-0 victory of last year. Torry kept them at bay and no further misery was added. Torry needed to win these last two matches against teams just above them in the table to prove their promotion play off credentials. Soundly beaten in both, those dreams are now mere mathematical figures on a board.
With Ruben and Brani likely to feature in the Elche Ilicitano line up this Sunday when our top four neighbours come to play, it will prove another interesting contest, even if it now looks as though the team is playing out the remainder of the season without realistic hopes of real success. Mind you, ten straight wins would change all that!
