RP Orihuela 0 CD Montesinos 1
A blustery Sunday morning greeted the players at Racing Orihuela’s home ground next door to Torrevieja’s Swimming Pool, which saw Monte come away with all three points, notching up five consecutive victories, with a late winner. The cold and windy conditions were not conducive to good football, as both teams kept the ball moving from one half to the other with neither side bothering the goalkeepers. Orihuela were a bit more physical in their tackles, whereas Monte seemed to hold off from going in with good tackles, and there was nothing to show for either side come the interval.
The scrappy affair continued in the same vein in the second half, and it was late on that the action happened. With a couple of minutes remaining, Wallace was substituted by Josema, and within seconds of the change, Monte won a free-kick, which was taken by Galindo, who himself had come on earlier. The ball floated into the centre of the goal area to be met with a strong header from Orourke, straight at the goalkeeper, who could only parry it to Manuel, who tapped the ball into the Orihuela net. Three points bagged for Monte, though it really was a disappointing match to watch, with just a couple of genuine goal scoring chances over the whole lacklustre affair.
