MATCH REPORT | CD Torrevieja 0 Orihuela CF 3. Losing the plot!

The plot, as in land, was lost when Torry reluctantly vacated the Vicente Garcia to contest matches at the Nelson Mandela. They may lose a bigger plot unless they find a way to stem the concession of goals and with them, points.
It is always unpalatable to lose a derby match, especially at home and especially by three goals to nil. It is even more distasteful if your manager and captain served the opposition last season and were determined to have one over their old employers. But when Ayo drove the ball low and hard for the opener, the writing was on the wall. He seemed to have as much time as he liked at the edge of the Torry penalty box, no one able to make that key tackle and he duly took advantage of such reticence by taking his time to pick his spot.
Torry carved out several good chances in the first period, with Lewis, Matheus and Luis Carlos all looking lively and capable of levelling the contest. Control deserted Matheus at a critical moment and he lost his composure when snatching at a shot just inside the box, which then trundled feebly into the welcoming arms of Emilio in the Orihuela goal. Torry were having the lion's share of possession, but the final pass was missing it's mark more often than not. Lewis battled as he usually does, challenging Emilio near goal but only getting a crack on his head for his troubles, which required some attention.
Marcano was wrong footed when a defender's toe got in the way of Antonio's shot and as the Torry keeper committed to his left, he could not adjust and watched helplessly as the ball trickled into the right hand corner of the net. Only three minutes of the second half had elapsed and Torry were now facing another mountainous climb back into contention. Optimism remained however, as Orihuela had conceded three goals at home last weekend and manager Correa set about having a real go at them, bringing on the muscular Salamander for defender Martin, soon after then giving Damian Aguero his return debut.
They both worked hard and got in efforts at goal, but it was full back Vicente who went closest with a screamer from outside the area which Emilio did brilliantly to turn over for a corner. Torry pressed relentlessly, especially through Damian on the right and Luis Carlos on the left, but Orihuela held firm and Torry could find no way through.  As Torry battled for a foothold back in the game, they were exposed at the back and a quick raid down the left saw a cross which gave Siro the easiest of tap ins near the far post. With only time to be added on, it was all over for Torry who have serious issues to address, not the least the worry of having conceded eight goals in their first three games.
It will be a stern test of their resolve and ability this weekend at Olimpic Xativa, who has yet to concede a goal. A win will get Torry right back in the mix, but a third consecutive defeat would be hard to swallow, even at this early stage of the season.
