Torry went into the game looking for another win to build on their superb victories in the last 2 games against top 4 sides Elche Ilicitano and CD Castellon. Torry were without the suspended 1st choice keeper Manuel Serna and defender Martin through injury with Higon and Luis Carlos carrying knocks which consigned them both to a place on the bench. Ruben Suarez started instead of Carrasco and Lewis instead of Higon. Jorge returned to central defence after suspension. The game kicked off in bright sunshine with a breeze coming off the sea in front of a crowd of around 350 of the Torry faithful. Torry got off to the worst possible start when in the first minute the opposition took the lead. A cross was delivered from the right which the Torry defence didn´t deal with and a Levante forward tucked the ball into the back of the net. This silenced the crowd. Torry had plenty of possession but their build up play was slow and laborious from the back and they didn´t really threaten the Torre Levante defence. Torre Levante were, compact, disciplined, closed down quickly and were quicker getting the ball from back to front. Lewis had a good chance for Torry around the 10 minute mark but his effort was saved by the Levante keeper. Prieto, who had been very quiet for Torry came alive just after the 30 minute mark and played Rafa Gomez in with a sublime pass which pierced the Levante defence. Rafa had only the keeper to beat but shot straight at him and he blocked his shot. A golden opportunity to get level gone. Just before the break Prieto made a powerful surging run through the Levante defence with his powerful shot flying just wide. The first half to be honest resembled an end of season encounter with nothing to play for. Torry simply lacked direction and any real sense of urgency. Torry started the second half more encouragingly without really troubling the Levante keeper. Torry manager Pedreno made a couple of changes on 58 minutes taking off Jorge and Rafa Gomez and bringing on Sanchez and Higon to try and ignite a bit of spark into the lethargic Torry team. The substitutes however had little time to make an impression before Levante went 2 up when in the 60th minute. Quintero tripped one of the opposition forwards in the penalty area and the referee pointed to the spot. The penalty was struck powerfully into the back of the net with young keeper Kike going the wrong way. One final throw of the dice by Torry manager Pedreno when he brought on veteran Carrasco for Ruben Suarez. The changes in personnel made little impact and as the game entered its final stages Torry threw caution to the wind and were caught twice on the counter attack in the 83rd and 84th minutes. First from a cross which was struck into the net from a tight angle and then from a deft touch from Levantes impressive no.9 Marc Cosme. It could have been even more embarrasing as Levante had another goal dis-allowed for offside as the game came to a close. 3 players from Levante were cautioned and 2 from Torry, Quintero and Javi Selvas. Torre Levante were worthy winners. They showed far more urgency than lacklustre Torry.  Young Torry keeper Kike was the hero last week and full of delight but this week came back down to earth with a bang. He couldn´t be faulted for the goals as he was left exposed by those in front of him.

Torrys slim hopes of a top 4 finish have now gone. Torry are away to lowly UD Beniganim next weekend and need to brush themselves down up the ante and put things right and come away with a convincing win.
