Hanging On!

It was a pulsating performance from Torry against 10th placed Crevillente on Sunday when the hosts lifted all three points with a hard fought 1-0 win. They deserved the success, but it brought them no closer to safety as rivals Bunol defeated Almoradi 4-0 to maintain their three point advantage. With now only two games left to play, it is time for conviction and composure to reign supreme, with every player giving their all.
No one could deny the committment and endeavour of key players. Vicente Boix played his best game ever. His pace and tenacity was incredible. Constantly he was available down the right wing, dinking past opponents and delivering tantalising crosses. When not threatening in this manner, he was resolutely defending like a man possessed. Martin surprised fans with his daring high speed bursts past defenders as if they were not there. Sensing opportunities he tore into the Crevillente defence, his power and pace taking them beyond their clutch.
But the key piece of action in the first period was at the other end when Jose Carlos made a vital save when Crevillente forced their path to his goal and had only him to beat. Jose never flinches, nor panics. He is not the biggest goalkeeper, but he is sharp, clever and agile. He stood his ground and waited for his opponent to make his move first. Then he kept his head, but saved with his leg, to keep Torry level at the interval.Torry's first half chances were wide of the mark, but only just. Lewis fired a terrific free kick inches past the post, with Oscar dashing to cover the shot. Beltran cut in from the right and zipped another effort again inches past the upright. Despite the quality of crosses from Luis Carlos and the incredible Vicente Boix, Crevillente coped with these in their stride.
Former Torry captain Jorge did not feature for the visitors, being suspended for this contest, having been sent off the previous weekend, but his defending colleagues were managing in his absence. At times they were struggling to cope with the exuberance and sheer determination of Lewis Allen, but by and large they were restricting clear cut chances to a minimum. Torry needed a goal, especially as the game progressed, they seemed to have stifled the visitor's attack. Midway through the second half Torry made the vital breakthrough. They had been playing some intricate play and this time Luis Carlos turned provider, spraying a sweet curling cross into the middle. With calm and confidence, it was collected by Duran who swivelled inside the box and cracked the ball into the net via the underside of the bar. For a split second fans wondered if the goal would stand, as it had bounced out of the net, but the eagle-eyed assistant indicated it had crossed the line and players celebrated with as much relief as joy.
More chances were created by a rampant Torry who were displaying all their finer qualities as manager Pedreño barked out his orders from the touchline. Molina came on for the listless Borja Mir on the hour mark and made his mark with several fine dribbles and moves. Torry should have extended their lead when he made a grease lightning break from his own half right down to the opposition byeline. Duran had sprinted into the box and all Molina had to do was cut the ball back to him and he would have slotted it home. Instead he hit it high to the far post, half creating a much more difficult chance for Luis Carlos, which he could not manage. 
Before he came on as a substitute, Damian got himself booked. He was warming up close to the corner flag behind the Torry goal when a Crevillente attack petered out. Believing the ball had fully crossed the line, he kicked it back to Jose Carlos. The linesman got the referee over and explained that the ball had not fully went out of play. Damian was rightly cautioned, but sadly the referee showed his ineptness by awarding a free kick to Crevillente instead of restarting play with a drop ball.
However, the important thing was the win and those three points that keep hope alive. Torry are three points behind Bunol and five behind Paterna, whom Torry visit on Sunday. An away victory and Paterna would also be one of the sides battling for their survival on the final day of the season - how exciting is that! But that entails Torry winning at a very tough venue. Paterna are dramatically out of form, having only won once in their last eleven games, that win being on 19 February. On the other hand, they have only suffered one home defeat in that same period. Torry know that they must return with all three points.
