Penalty Decider

Miguel Serna made several brilliant saves in this match and despite diving the right way was unable to stop the penalty kick that won the tie for Rayo. In the first half he pulled off magnificent save after magnificent save to deny the hosts who bombarded the Torry goal. The Salineros had little to offer in terms of response, goalkeeper Marcos able to go walkabout with little else to occupy him. Though he did keep an eye on possible Torry free kicks, just in case Suarez fancied another long distance embarrassment, as had been the case  at the Nelson Mandela earlier this term.
The second half was only three minutes old when Javi Selvas was punished for a hand ball and Navarro placed the ball on the spot. Miguel dived low to his left and made a valiant effort but the ball was struck well and found its way past him and into the net. Torry were more aggressive in the second period and several times went close to levelling affairs. Lewis is non stop action and he was fed down the left by Suarez and he bore down on the box then fired off his shot which grazed the top of the bar with Marcos struggling to get close to it.
Sanchez was introduced and he added more forward thrust to the attack. Gathering the ball thirty five yards from goal, he jinked past three opponents and as he reached the edge of the area he blasted his shot which was destined for the top corner of the net. This time it was the home keeper's turn for heroics as Marcos stretched high to his left and managed to get his fingertips to the ball to deflect it for a corner.
Torry piled on the pressure, even sending Javi Selvas up to add numbers and height to attacks. Corner after corner Rayo defended resolutely and denied Torry an equaliser. Higon down the right and Lewis now on the left side after the introduction of Prieto, bombed forward with pace and determination, but both were frustrated. Higon sped past his marker and tried to chip the advancing Marcos who once more did splendidly to block the shot for another corner.
Torry were enterprising and entertaining in the second half and were disappointed not to have got something out of the match. They now prepare themselves for their final home tie, which is against Jove Espanol, who are desperate for points to avoid relegation. After the match, the Torry Army will present trophies to players in the end of season awards to acknowledge their performances and all the pleasure they have given fans throughout a testing season.
It promises to be a cracking game and an emotional one, as this may be the last time fans will see many of their favourites who will move on during the summer. The game kicks off at 6pm and it would be great if there was a big turnout to cheer them on and applaud them as they receive their awards on the pitch at the conclusion of the match.
