Hugo Hogs the Limelight

Back from injury the powerful Hugo Salamanca led the Torry line in Amazora with panache and precision. When he rammed home Torry´s second goal from the penalty spot, it looked sure that he had won all the points, something only one side has managed in this Castellon stronghold all season thus far. When he limped off injured, Torry lost their ability to hold the ball up front and Almazora battered away for the eqauliser, which they got in the last ten minutes, courtesy of another penalty kick.
Torry were without captain Lewis who was suspended, having picked up his fifth caution of the term last weekend. They also missed Dani Salazar, who was injured in training just the day before the match. Martin returned from injury to partner Calzado at the heart of the Torry defence with the brilliant Carrasco pushed forward into his more accustomed midfield role. Sadly this was his first under par performance for Torry, his challenges being weak and his passes going badly astray.
Torry were as good as ever going forward, the creative genius of Damian probing for weaknesses and Pastor using his lightning pace to unnerve the home defence. Booker was battling tenaciously in the middle of the park, determined to belie his youthful age and stamp his mark on the game. Despite a few self imposed scares when Martin and Carrasco elected to play football deep in their own territory instead of blasting the ball clear, Torry dominated the half and it was against the run of play on 34 minutes when Nico tapped home from close range after Buba spilled a rasping low drive from inside the box. Nico looked decidedly offside, but no flag was evident.
Five minutes later Damian forced his way into the box with sheer persistence and hit a left foot daisy cutter into the right hand corner of the net for the Torry equaliser. Less than five minutes later Pastor made a mazy run into the box where the only option was to fell him. Hugo had to wait for ages with the ball on the spot before the referee finished writing in his notebook, then slowly take up his position forty yards from his note taking and eventually blow his whistle for the kick to be taken. Hugo was not fazed. He waited for the permission, then fiercly smashed the ball into the net, uncaring if it went through keeper Alejandro en route.
Torry deserved their half time lead and should have added to it in the second period. After good work down the left flank, the ball was centred for Pastor, who took in in a tight spot. He kept control as he evaded his markers and got it on his favoured right foot on the edge of the box. He must have then taken his eye off the ball to check the goal as he fired his shot well off target, when recent clinical finishing from the Oz bound striker suggested he would have normally buried it. Almazora had the crowd screaming at the referee for every Torry challenge, their main striker keen to fling himself to the ground whenever Martin got close to him. Referee Antonio Rodríguez Rodrigo did well to resist their urgings, until he relented in the 84th minute.
Vicente was under pressure with his opponent trying to squeeze past him on the byeline. Vicente got a foot to the ball but the player went down under the challenge and the spot kick was awarded. Buba guessed right and got agonisingly close to the low drive from Rober, but just failed to stop it. The final five minutes were mostly Almazora but it took a last minute fingertip save from Alejandro to ensure they kept a share of the spoils. Torry won a good point on a ground were few sides leave with anythng more, but it felt like a couple dropped, having led for so long.
