 Hard to Swallow
Torry lost this final home match of 2016, but it was hard to understand how. They trailed at the interval, but in the second half they pummelled the opposition goal, even had the ball in the net, but nothing seemingly could provide them with a recognizable score. Chances thundered one after the other in lightning strikes on the Paterna goal, but always the ball stayed resolutely out of the net. Matheus, Lewis, Damian, Luis Carlos and others peppered the visiting goal to no avail. In the end, it was frustration and worry.
The worry at the end of the game centred around striker Lewis Allen, who once more run himself ragged and played with his usual fearlessness. He took worrying knocks to the head in both halves and at the conclusion of the match had to be held up by staff as he appeared to faint and when questioned had no recollection of the game. The ambulance whisked him to hospital for a cat scan and kept him in overnight as a precaution. Fans can check on his progress and well being on the club's website / C.D. Torrevieja - Web oficial or on the Torry Army Facebook page.
Duco scored the only goal of the game in the 27th minute. He made a dart in the box to get his head on the end of a cross whilst all the Torry defenders stood and watched. The manager was furious and this defensive "sleeping" has now become a part of Torry's character. At the start of the second period, Pedreno sacrificed central defender Pecha for Mattheus and he certainly added much more sparkle to Torry attacks. Along with Lewis, Damian and the ever consistent Luis Carlos, he skated down the left flank, taking on defenders and getting them in a blue funk.
However, no matter how often Torry got into exciting positions to score, it simply wouldn't happen. From the stand strikers Pastor and Hugo were perplexed, eager to be on the pitch to remedy the malaise. Both are likely to return to action in Borriol this coming weekend, but it is hard to see how the manager will accommodate them, as the majority of strikers played well. It was just not their day. Robles and Soto try hard and both had started the game in Crevillente midweek where Torry fought back to level the scores from a two goal deficit, only to concede from a corner to lose 3-2. Robles retained his place in the starting line up, but Soto made his customary appearance as a substitute. Both struggled to make an impact.
Buba also looked dazed after he had clashed with his own defender Calzado and actually came off the pitch after treatment with Lucas ready to replace him. However, Buba insisted on continuing and Lucas still awaits his debut. Torry has now gone six consecutive games without a win and have two away games left in 2016. This weekend at Borriol, who sit immediately above them in the table. Then a midweek tie at Almoradi before the Christmas break. These matches must produce wins if Torry are to rest peaceful over the holiday period and enjoy the festivities.
