At Last!
Torry recorded their first win since 6th November in Castellon on Sunday, but more than that, it was a performance of brilliance. It was only the second time that the mighty Castellon had tasted defeat at home this term, the previous demise being 4th September. For Torry, it demonstrated the quality throughout the squad, the unshakable belief of the manager and the grit and determination of the club to divest themselves of this thus far demoralising season.
Every player was outstanding. Every player worked every second of this contest. One player though was unstoppable. Anyone watching Lewis Allen knows his workrate is phenomenal. He never shirks a tackle and is fearless when competing on the ground or in the air. In this match, he made Castellon weep with his diagonal runs, his fierce desire for the ball and his predatory instinct. He had brought out a fine save fromZagal only moments before debutant Molina got to the goal line, cut the ball back for the on rushing Luis Carlos to drive a composed low shot into the far side of the net. It was a beauty to give Torry the lead.
Molina on his first outing looked a resounding success both in his attacking support for Lewis but also using the ball in midfield decisively. Castellon, as expected, dominated play, but attack after attack was managed impressively by a resolute and composed Torry rearguard. When a shot breached the back four, then Jose Carlos was authoritative on his goal line, determined to keep a clean sheet and Buba on the bench. He was beaten though, from the penalty spot after Calzado was adjudged to have tripped an opponent in the box. Jose Carlos made up his mind which way to dive, but it was the wrong decision - the only one he was to make throughout the match.
With the score level then for the second half, Castellon came out like a team on a mission, knowing a win would take them back into the top four after Novelda's home defeat on Saturday. Torry were resolute with every player ensuring serious shots on target were kept to a minimum. Jose Carlos did have two key saves to make, one with his legs, to ensure the score did not inch in favour of the home side. When Pastor was hauled down in the box midpoint into the second period, it was Lewis who stepped up to the mark. He oozed confidence as his left foot strike placed the ball securely into the net, before he was lifted aloft by colleagues who knew they could keep the hosts at bay.
They did so with conviction and the fresh legs of Matheus (for Pastor) and Joel (for Molina), with Dani Salazar having replaced Nica shortly before the winning goal. Castellon did not give up, but they could not find the equaliser and so stay put in 5th place. Torry move up one slot, but remain solidly berthed in the relegation places. Fans know that March is the month of destiny as Torry contest the first three Sundays at home and face strugglers Muro (also winners at the weekend) in a midweek showdown. These five fixtures in March can provide the exit door for Torry from the basement group. If playing as they did in Castellon, then that is a distinct possibility.
The manager is calm and confident, the squad is fit and focussed, the fans should be excited and enthusiastic and already salivating at the prospect of getting to the Nelson Mandela on Sunday morning for the 11.45 kick off against the team just outside the relegation quartet, Bunol.
