First Official Home Win!
Despite winning their first match of the season 3-2 against Almoradi, this was officially Torry´s first home victory of this campaign. Fans know that Torry were stripped of those points as they played an inelgible player. It has been a long wait - into November - before being able to cheer home that glorious first success at the Nelson Mandela in front of an appreciative crowd. Now it is clear that many more will follow.
Back to back clean sheets and wins have lifted the club enormously. Confidence is high and the slick, accurate passing is a treat for the eyes. Only five minutes had elapsed when a delightful move ended with Lewis passing to Hugo Salamnader in the box. The burly striker had to make space for himself by edging left of centre, seemingly losing his chance. But he then deftly chipped the ball diagonally into the far corner of the net for an exquisite goal. 
Torry were without two goal Segorbe hero Pastor who suffered an injury in training midweek, but the rugged wingman is confident of being fit for this weekend´s coming clash in Torre Levante. His place was taken by teenager Booker who has been a revelation this term, breaking into the team with some mature performances. With Damian displaying his exceptional craft, Lewis his phenomenal workrate and Salazar covering every opposition play, the Torry midfield was full of youthful vigour and determination.
Silla, however, is a decent side and they got a foothold in the game, bringing out the very best in Carrasco and Juanmi. Carrasco never put a foot wrong and is an extremely accomplished and versatile player. He is instrumental in Torry´s success. Juanmi had the game of his life, making numerous telling tackles and interventions and always making the right judgement in terms of his ball play. Aided by Luis Carlos and the vim of Vicente, this Torry rearguard is playing out of their skins. Add to that the brilliance of Buba in goal and it is clear to see why the team has moved up the league table in consecutive weeks.
Torry should have put the match to bed in the second half with at least three golden opportunities going begging. Mattheus had another storming game, working tirelessly for the team, but when one on one with Lucas in the Silla goal, he missed the target - not by much, but he should have buried it. Then Booker intercepted a pass and drove hard on goal as defenders chased him for all they were worth. As he reached the box, instead of blasting it into the net, he tried to pick our Lewis on his left, sending the player deep to the touchline and wasting the chance.
Lewis then worked hard to break free and bear down on goal from the right hand side. With Matheus alone in the box it would have been easy to slip him the ball and let the winger tap it home. Lewis, with the ball on his favoured left foot, chose to try his luck, grazing the far upright as the ball went wide.Torry almost rued those missed chances as Buba was called upon to make a superb reflex save to concede a corner in the dying minutes. Again, late on, substitute Kerman got his shot all wrong, with the goal at his mercy, injurying himself in the process. But Torry deserved the victory and duly celebrated their back to back successes. 
There is good news and bad ahead of Torry´s trip to mid table Torre Levante this weekend, where they will re-acquaint themselves with last year´s star turn, Ruben Sanchez. The bad news is that Juanmi is off to play for 2B side CD Tudelano. The club has a policy not to stand in the way of any player who receives an offer from a higher league club and have honoured that pledge. Based on his display on Sunday, he will be sorely missed. Goal scorer Hugo had to be helped off the pitch with an injury, soon after the restart and it is not yet known how serious this is. On the positive side, Pastor insists he will return to action and the club expects to have completed the paperwork for at least three new players, shoring up the central defensive psositions, especially in the continued absence through injury of Martin.
The team is far from out of the woods, but the spirit, ability and industry that each and every player puts into every match suggests that the battle for a much higher league place is eminently attainable. Another win this weekend in Valencia and no one will have any doubts about that.
