 Pastor at the Double
 

 
Torry did a few things in this game that they had failed to do all season. They did the double over a rival, having beaten Bunol 3-2 away. This 2-0 victory also saw them win consecutive matches for the first time this season. In doing so it closed the gap to three points with Bunol, the team who currently occupy the last remaining "safe" position. They have overhauled Muro and that is the next port of call on Wednesday evening to see if the winning run can be extended, together with the prospect of moving out of the bottom four!
 
March has always promised to be the month that made or broke the club and it got off to a winning start, courtesy of two Pastor strikes, one in each half. But make no mistake, this was an exquisite team performance with excellence shining through in every department. However, once again the tormentor of the opposition was Lewis Allen, whose constant pressure on the Bunol defence left them weary and wounded. Torry started the game on the front foot with Bunol hardly able to break out of their half. Torry were able to press down the flanks through the speed and craft of Pastor and Luis Carlos, or drive through the middle using the deft skills and tenacity of Molina and Lewis.
 
Molina was making his home debut and his guile and endeavour in midfield enamoured himself to fans seeing him for the first time. He debuted in Castellon and was instrumental in the win there and this victory against Bunol. Sergio Duran made his debut and he and Dani Salazar were impeccable in the centre of the park, grafting away with a must win attitude and showing great creative talent. Jose Carlos was rock steady, pulling off a magnificent second half save when Bunol had their most enterprising period. The back four were unbeatable, Javi Meca shouting out his captain's instructions to willing listeners who never put a foot wrong.
 
Pastor took his eye off the ball for a split second when sent through into the box midway through the first half, forcing him wide and ultimately losing out to the bye line. He made up for it five minutes later, when he out battled his much bigger opponent inside the box, twisted him round and made room to drive his shot into the net. It was pure desire and a lot of skill and a joy to behold. Pastor just missed a cross from the left as it skimmed his head and he was a constant threat on the Bunol goal. Lewis tried to get in on the act with a 25 yard free kick that was saved at the expense of a corner by goalkeeper Joan.
 
Torry continued in the second half where they left off in the first. Lewis timed his run to perfection, speeding past the Bunol defence and looking likely to unleash a left foot pile driver into the net. Instead he realised that Pastor had joined him in the middle and he squared the ball to him with precision, allowing the Oz bound winger to score his second. More should have followed but the linesman had a poor game, missing a couple of infringements and penalising Torry for offside, when it patently was not the case.
 
Torry remain in the relegation places but at Muro on Wednesday evening has the chance to make that leap out, should they win and Bunol lose. More home games on the following two Sundays, against Alzira, then Segorbe could be magic moments for a side that has clearly found their rhythm and poise. The side has always had bags of talent, now it has composure, grit and a winning mentality. It will need to demonstrate all these qualities consistently from here on in if division three status is to be retained. Muro will pose a big test, as they know that a win for them sees them back in salvation territory. This may not be a game for the purists, but it will be one for big hearts and fierce determination. Bring it on!
