Last Sunday Torry travelled north of the city of Valencia to play mid-table Borriol. On the bench for Borriol was their President, the famous golfer Sergio Garcia who hails from the town and it was hoped if he got on he wasn’t as skilful with a football as he is with as golf club. Torry were again without the injured trio Abel, JuanFran and Manu Amores. Torry welcomed back Villanueva after his lengthy suspension and included new signing Pepitiu in goal. Pepitiu has played for Santa Pola CF in Regional Preferente this season and is the brother of the popular ex-Torry player Manu. Torry were looking to extend their unbeaten record to 4 and climb further away from the relegation zone.
Torrys starting line-up: Pepitiu, Vicente, Burguillos, Rafa, Dani, Jorge, Cuco Ros, Gasch (Guillem 45 '), Luis Carlos (Sergio 71'), Villanueva (José Manuel 82 '), Koeman.
The game kicked off on a cold and wet and windy lunch-time in front of a small crowd of around 150. The game became a midfield battle with both defences generally on top but with Torry having the edge. Villanueva started brightly on his return while Koeman was again putting himself about up front. Vicente picked up an early for holding back the speedy Borriol left winger who was posing a threat down the left. Gasch had a good effort saved and then Cuco Ros came close when he hit the post from a corner. Jorge then had a header on target saved from another set piece. Koeman then dispossessed a defender and had his shot on target turned round the post by the home keeper. The first-half came to a close with Torry having had the better of the play. Torry made their first on resumption of play with young Guillem replacing Gasch and for once was given a decent period of time on the pitch to make an impact instead of a few minutes. Borriol also brought on Sergio Garcia for the second period. Borriol had the ball in the Torry net after a break forward but the effort was disallowed for offside. Villanueva then had a good chance from an acute angle which he put wide. After 71 minutes Torry made their second with Sergio replacing Luis Carlos. Sergio then received a for a late challenge soon after entering the fray. After 82 minutes Torry made their third and final with Jose Manuel replacing the tiring Villanueva. Koeman then missed a golden opportunity from close range with his effort being blocked by the Borriol keeper after a good delivery into the box from a free-kick by Dani. Koeman then had the ball in the back of the Borriol net after a knock-on by Jorge but it was ruled out for offside. With a few minutes to go Koeman had another great chance to seal victory for Torry from another Dani free-kick but his effort from close in was very well saved by the Borriol keeper. The game ended in stalemate with Torry being disappointed not to have claimed all three points. The new keeper Pepitiu had a competent debut and Rafa was again rock solid at the heart of the Torry defence.
On the Bench: Tur, Sergio, Guillem, Mati, Jose Manuel
As a result of the win Torry remain in 13th place in the table, now 6 points clear of the 4th and final relegation spot, with the threat of relegation dissipating with 4 games to go.
Tomorrow, on Bank Holiday Wednesday Torry are at home at 5.00 pm to 3rd placed Elche Ilicitano who are still in contention for the league title. They will be a young, well drilled and technically proficient side who will present Torry with a stiff challenge. Torry will have to be at their best to get a result. Torry's confidence should be high after a run of 1 defeat in the last 6 games and that was at league leaders Alzira.
The game is a Club Del Dia with the following entrance, prices:-
- Socio's free
- Season ticket-holders 5 euro's
- Casuals 12 euro's
It should be an exciting game.
