It was a big match in a big stadium, the Martinez Valero, but Torry came up short, finishing with nine players and nil points, ensuring their final five matches will be nail biting in the feral dog fight for third division survival.
It was a glorious afternoon for this contest which followed on from the Segunda clash between the first team of Elche and Sevilla Atlectico, which ended 3-2 to the hosts. Some fans remained to watch their second string, as the Torry supporters dribbed into the spacious ground to enjoy the luxuries of an international venue. The first half was fairly even with Lewis, as ever, showing his incisive nature and dogged determination, giving Ilicitano plenty to think about. For Elche, former Torry winger Brani was a danger man. Converted to right full back since his return to Elche, he still makes lightning raids down the flank and these were a thorn in the Torry flesh all match long.
As the half progressed, Elche began to look the more menacing and invited more robust defending from Torry. Former Ilicitano player Pastor was the first in the book on 20 minutes, followed by captain Javi Meca shortly after the half hour mark. Torry tried to contain their hosts and did so until the interval, both sides retiring with clean sheets to their credit. It was less than ten minutes into the second half when Lewismade a sensational pass to Molina who fired home the opener. Molina was enjoying the wide open spaces of the Martinez Valero and having his best ever game in a Torry shirt. The lead lasted until the hour mark when Llor pounced on a loose ball in the Torry box and levelled the score. It was a failure to clear the ball adequately and Torry paid the price.
With that impetus, Elche Ilicitano pushed harder for the victory, which just keeps their promotion play off hopes alive. They got their just reward on 70 minutes when Leomar banged home the winner. Torry would not lie down and invigorated by fresh legs, they took the game to the opposition again. In the end, it was a penalty foul by Vicente Boix, another former Ilicitano graduate, which saw him dismissed from the field of play and the home side awarded the spot kick to wrap up the points. Jose Carlos denied them extending their lead, but Torry could find no more at the other end.
In time added on, Javi Meca picked up his second yellow card and Torry limped home with only nine men and a defeat that keeps them locked on 32 points with Bunol, 3-1 losers at Crevillente. Muro's second win on the bounce, sees them 4 points behind, and a creditable 1-1 draw for Almoradi against Novelda allows them to sustain hope of survivial on 27 points, each of these four teams all now with five games left to pull the rabbit out of the hat.
Torry entertain Almazora on Thursday night at the Nelson Mandela with a 5.30 kick off where they must resume winning ways. Almazora won at the weekend and now have a five point buffer between themselves and Torry, but along with Paterna and Recambios Colon (all grouped on 37 points) are not safe yet. Borriol lost at home whilst their President was winning the Masters in Augusta and sit on 39 points, still seeking a few more to guarantee survival. Torry play all four plus Crevillente in their five match finishing run in. Now just how tense and exciting is that going to be!
