  Olimpic show their quality

                                                                                                                          
 
The runaway unbeaten league leaders trailed at half time to Torry after debutant Beltran burst the net with a fabulous shot from just outside the box in the 19th minute. It was some way to announce himself, after his arrival from Alzira earlier this month. Beltran collected a short pass from the tireless Dani Salazar and pushed forward a few metres to ensure the ball was on his favoured left foot. Then from twenty yards he unleashed a screamer into the top of the net, with Paco in the Olimpic goal at full stretch and nowhere near it.
 
Calzado nearly doubled Torry's lead when he headed against the crossbar and the division's unbeaten boys knew this was serious, despite Torry's lowly league position. Torry would not give Olimpic any peace in the first forty five, closing them down, pressing them at the back, chasing every ball and working non stop. The big question was, could they do the same for another 45 minutes, or would they run out of steam? As it happened, Olimpic came out in the second half clearly intending to prove that they were deserved leaders of the group and were level within 90 seconds!
 
They made a searing run down their right flank and Torry could not compete with their pace. Solano dashed into the box and despite his acute angle, drove the ball between Buba's legs and into the far corner of the net. It was the response their manager dermanded, and one that Torry feared. With their confidence fully restored, the visitors began to control the middle of the park, this depite the battling of Diaby and Dani Salazar, who were always in the thick of it. Olimpic got their noses in front with 20 minutes left on the clock and once more the damage was done down the right hand side. With his defence exposed, Buba came out of his goal, but was rounded and this time Solano proved providor as he passed to Fuster who slotted it home.
 
Pedreno was as crestfallen as the visitors were cock-a-hoop. Nonetheless, he continued barking out his orders and his players continued to work hard to create more opportunities. Ilyes, who led the line in Orihuela last week, was added to the mix to assist Beltran in the search for an equaliser. Despite the energy and effort, it did look like the only player likely to find the net would be Beltran, who was able to accept the ball, glide past opponents and find room for his shot. Torry toiled away but without troubling Paco.
 
Olimpic secured the points with a third goal, eight minutes before the end. This time Fuster delivered from the left for Solano to double his personal tally and make the scoreline a flattering 3-1. This was perhaps a score that was expected given the teams respective places in the league table, but it was not a true reflection of the match. Despite all their work, their discipline and determination, Torry were found wanting in being able to close a game down once they had taken the lead. Their preparation had been thorough, their approach to the game, meticulous. But defensive vulnerabilities broke their back and spirit. Olimpic continue to charge ahead at the top of the table, still unbeaten. Torry continue to languish in the relegation places with many fans talking only half humourously about playing Preferente football next term.
 
That can still be avoided and a climb out of the danger zone is more than possible, given the talent and drive within the squad. But the facts are coldly staring the club in the face. It was 6th November since Torry's last win, that a slender 1-0 win over Silla. They have now lost six of their last seven matches, one point won from a possible 24, with that 1-1 draw in Almoradi before christmas. A win on Sunday at Rayo Ibense is badly needed but Rayo will be buoyed by the fact that they already have beaten Torry 2-1 this season and it is their home form that sees them in a relatively safe position mid table. It is indeed, all to play for.
