Torry lost this first match of 2017, but their second half display was magnificent. In this period they had the ball in the net three times, but only one stood. Then a fast break left Lucas exposed and the visitors snatched an undeserving winner with barely a few minutes left to play. It looked to the world like Torry would take all three points, instead they only took tears and bitterness to the changing room as players had to be restrained from brawling.
Without any shadow of a doubt, Villareal C were much the better in the first half. This young side is littered with eager talent and they moved quicker to the ball. ran into space, delivered their passes with greater accuracy and fluency and had Torry struggling to contend with them. Making his debut in goal for the suspended Buba, Lucas had to dash out of his box to try and clear a ball, but flattened his opponent instead and was in the notebook in under three minutes! He later redeemed himself with several excellent reflex saves. 
As well as Buba, Calzado, Vicente and Lewis were all suspended for this match and as well as full debuts for Lucas and Jorge, Lewis Rutherford also played for the first time for Torry, coming on as a 56th minute sub for the injured Lewis Booker. This Torry squad is changing rapidly, with another clutch of new players due to feature this month and the team now boasts no less than three named Lewis, so do keep up! And that does not include Luis Carlos!
Torry did well to weather the first half Villareal storm, though in truth the visitors did not seriously trouble Lucas. This was mainly down to an exceptional performance from captain Martin who made crucial tackles and whose presence was colossal. Debutant Jorge was also impressive and fans had much to enjoy and applaud. However, it was Villareal who opened the scoring soon after the restart. Carrasco seemed to feel he had been fouled and allowed his opponent to escape his clutches, who crossed simply to Simon who then buried his shot into the corner of the net, Lucas just short of reaching it.
The goal galvanised the home side whose play thereafter was fabulous. Villareal had no answer to the power and precision of Torry's attacks. Luis Carlos and Robles tormented them down the left flank, whilst Pastor and Damiam ran riot on the right. Torry took a stranglehold on the game and it was one way traffic for much of last half hour. Torry scored a well deserved equaliser with 25 minutes left to play after Luis Carlos delivered a superb free kick from the left and new boy Jorge rose highest to glance the ball home for a sensational debut. Jorge had now moved to centre half with Lewis Rutherford replacing the injured Lewis Booker and taking up the right back position. 
Torry then brought on Hugo Salamanca to help thrust through the middle for the winner, which looked certain to come. Damian beat the offside trap with an immaculate run and delivered the ball across goal but Robles just failed to get the necessary touch on it to convert it. Pastor was combining with Damian to create more chances and Villareal were riding their luck. Fuoli in the visitor's goal was having a charmed life, sticking out an arm or a leg to frustrate the home side. After one such save the ball fell to Robles who smashed it into the net via the underside of the crossbar. The referee looked to his linesman for confirmation of the goal, but none was forthcoming and play continued. It was a travesty.
Moments later the mercurial Damian worked his magic inside the box on the left hand side and passed to Hugo who cleverly back flipped the ball into the net for a Torry winner. Oh no, the linesman who failed to see that the ball had crossed the line for a Torry goal earlier, deemed that Damian was offised and thus this goal was ruled out too! Still it looked like the Torry winner would come. That was until Villareal broke hard and fast and Akale found himself with only Lucas to beat. He did so professionally and with barely two minutes left to play, Villareal had resumed the lead.
Torry did not hang their heads. They once more seized the initiative and presed for the second equaliser, again going close. When the final whistle blew the players were inconsolable and the fans stood to a man and woman and applauded them off the park. They had been terrific and did not deserve to lose. There was some hargy bargy on the pitch before all the players made it to the changing rooms, with the Gaurdia Civil escorting the officials safely to their area. This weekend Torry travel to near rival Orihuela to get back on track. 
Team:Lucas, Jorge, Luis Carlos, Martín, Carrasco, Booker (Lewis Rutterford 56 '), Pastor, Dani Salazar (Hugo Salamanca 69'), Damián, Matheus and Robles.
