Bigastro 5 v. Daya Nueva 1
As early as the first minute Kepe in Daya’s goal had to make a smart save as the home side tore into their visitors. Daya did settle down after five minutes or so but Bigastro were making all the running.
Fernando made a great stop on the goal line to prevent the home side from taking an eleventh minute lead. Just three minutes later, following a good break down their left the home side went ahead with a well taken shot. Given the first fifteen minutes of play it looked like Daya were in for a long tough evening.
Kepe made three consecutive saves when Bigastro were clean through on his goal on sixteen minutes. Moments later Daya’s Ruben found himself with only the keeper to beat but was much too slow and the chance was gone ! This did at least give Daya a boost and their play improved somewhat. Josue forced the Bigastro keeper into a decent save on twenty two minutes following a good Daya attack.
Although the visitors were now playing some nice football, the home side still carried the greater goal threat. This they proved on thirty minutes when Daya presented them with the easiest of chances for goal number two. There were no further goals before the break and at 2 – 0 down Daya faced an uphill struggle in the second half. Straight from the restart Kepe was called into action making a good stop with his legs. Minutes later it was more of the same from Kepe and yet again moments later. The home side were now well in charge and there was next to nothing from Daya in reply.
On fifty five minutes a powerful header from a good Bigastro move just flew over the bar with Kepe stranded. Fernando misjudged a bouncing ball allowing the home side a one on one with Kepe that they took full advantage of for a 3-0 scoreline on fifty seven minutes.
On sixty minutes Rocamora went close for Daya forcing a great save from the keeper. From the resulting corner Miguel scored with a good header making it a 3-1 scoreline.. Daya’s euphoria lasted all of a minute before it was 4-1 following the usual defensive cock up.
On eighty three minutes from a corner Daya should have reduced the arrears when an unmarked Sisus saw his header fly past the upright ! With the final whistle about to go Rocamora of all the Daya players made a complete mess of a very good chance. Bigastro countered immediately and scored their fifth as the whistle went for full time.
So another heavy defeat for Daya, though their commitment was far far better than that shown last week. Man of the Match most definitely Kepe in goal.
