Faffing Foils Fightback!
Three set pieces illustrated the vulnerability of CD Torrevieja's defence. Crevillente scored all three from set pieces to ram home the fact that Torry has a somewhat lightweight constitution. The home side were much bigger, more aggressive and stronger. They were certainly not more skillful, but they used their physical attributes to good effect to bully Torry where it mattered - in the box and getting to the ball first.
Crevillente took a two goal advantage without really deserving it. Torry played the better football, looked more capable when in possession, but did not make the inroads that were needed in the final third of the pitch. Jaime Jornet had a simple task from close range following a free kick on 27 minutes and this was followed up by a header from a corner ten minutes later. At this stage it looked liked the hosts could force and intimidate their way to goal and possibly notch four or five to make it four wins on the bounce. Their confidence was dented shortly before the interval when Calzado headed home from a Torry corner to make the game more interesting.
In the second half Torry were more precise in their passing and created much intricate forward moves. Robles and Soto were not getting much change from former Torry sweeper Jorge, who was controlling the back line readily. Another Torry favourite, Oscar, was barking his orders at his defenders, ensuring they did not take lightly their defensive duties. However, in the 73rd minute Lewis made space for himself 25 yards from goal and on his favoured left foot drove a rasping low shot across goal and into the far corner of the net with Oscar left grasping thin air. Last season's leading goalscorer once more heads the Torry list with fiveto his credit.
It was a remarkable fightback from Torry who had looked dead and buried close to the interval. With their tails now up, a victory seemed more than possible. Damian had been introduced and he was using his guile to get the midfield busy and cause consternation in the home ranks. Lewis was his usual energetic self and Luis Carlos was expressing himself with glee down the left wing. However, Crevillente found a winner out of nothing when Buba and Calzado played the ball to each other, putting each other under pressure and conceding a needless corner. The corner from the left caused panic and was flicked away for another from the right wing. From this Navarro moved fastest and headed home for the winner.
It remains baffling why goalkeeper and defenders want to pass the ball between them and put themselves under pressure. Certainly when space and time permits, this is apporpriate, but otherwise why oh why is the ball not sent first class delivery into the opposition half, where just maybe an attack might materilaise? Torry paid dearly for this "indulgence" and too many times this season this prediliction has casued problems and near misses - not to mention heart failure amongst fans!
Torry deserved at least a point from this contest and were every inch as good as the hosts who now are very much in form, with four consecutive wins. Torry must pick themselves up from this disappointment and put Paterna to the sword on Sunday at the Nelson Mandela, where the game kicks off at 5pm.
