SPORTING ORIHUELA 0 CD MONTESINOS 4
Montesinos picked up only their second ever victory at Sporting Orihuela, as the side are now looking a totally different proposition to the unit that started the season. Monte were without striker Vaz who was serving a one-match ban for being red-carded against Atletico Orihuela, but his colleagues delivered the goods last Sunday.
A scrappy first half saw the ball more up in the air than on the ground, but the defence looked solid with the return of favourite Manu, and Dani secure in goal. The second half brought a massive change in the pattern of the game, especially after manager Carlos Perez had brought on striker Carlos Lorente. It was Carlos who broke the deadlock shortly after coming on, and then he set up a second goal for Aure, who later netted again to put the visitors 0-3 ahead to get the Monte fans on their feet.
Monte had further chances to increase their lead – Alfredo hit the bar, Fran smashed a shot against the post and Macan, who was again superb and all over the place, also missing a couple. But then, right on full time, Carlos Lorente capped off a magical second half performance and scored his second of the game as the referee blew for full time, with Monte four goals to the good.
