CD TORREVIEJA 1 MURO CF 3
This was a disastrous result for Torry, having lifted themselves off the foot of the table with a mid-week win at Buñol, and then they got a chance to do themselves a further power of good, by entertaining the new bottom side Muro on Sunday. Torry flopped big time and it’s hard to work out rationally how even at this early stage they can avoid relegation.
It was a 16th-minute penalty converted by Alberto that provided Muro with a slender half-time advantage, but they deserved it against a disjointed Torry side who were all at sea without central defenders Martin and Juanmi and with no depth to their squad. Muro took advantage of these weaknesses as Torry racked up five cautions in the first half hour.
The home side were reduced to 10 men when Vicente received his second caution midway through the second period, but they responded well by creating good chances through Hugo and Matheus. But it was left to captain Lewis Allen to draw them level in the 79th minute, once more from the penalty spot, as he had done midweek at Buñol. He coolly slotted home and fans wondered if Torry might yet again come from behind to snatch the spoils. That pondering lasted three minutes when the third penalty was awarded and once more despatched by Alberto into the net to put Muro back in front. A minute later they added a third through Johnny which gave them their first win of the season to jump above Torry, once more found languishing at the bottom of the heap.
These are worrying times for Torry who travel to Alzira at the weekend before rounding off the month with another away fixture. Few goals and no clean sheets so far this season are so far pointing to Preferente division football next year.
