MATCH RESULTS for the weekend of 5th & 6th April
AT. Crevillente Benjamins 9-2 Torrevieja United Benjamins
Torrevieja United Alevins: Free Weekend
Torrevieja United Infantils 1-4 Sporting Saladar EDMA Infantils
The match started well for Torrevieja who dominated from the beginning. A well deserved goal came in the 16th minute when Sydney took the ball down the right side, feigned a pass into the centre which wrong footed the defender to leave the way clear for a well placed shot over the goalkeeper's head. A couple of minutes later it was Sporting Saladar's turn to pile on the pressure and a sustained attack in the Torrevieja goal area fortunately left them without success. Torrevieja were denied a second when a powerful shot from Harrison was well saved by the Saladar keeper.
On the half hour Saladar made a break down the left side and the defence (what there was of it) was ineffective and the Saladar attacker continued on, firing a ball from left to right across the front of the keeper and ending up going in bottom left. 1-1. Torrevieja nearly went back into the lead when a stubborn Victor kept fighting his way to the goal only to have his shot cleared of the line. A very good first half from Torrevieja United.
The second half, unfortunately, was a different story. The game was fairly evenly played until in the 28th minute Saladar won a corner. Unseen by the referee, the ball curled out of play, then came back to bounce off of the near side post, typically for Torrevieja's luck, right to the feet of a Saladar player. A simple tap in put them in front 1-2. Six minutes later, the referee, who it must be said made very few mistakes, missed a clear offside. The Torrevieja goalkeeper made a brave dive to the attacker's feet but the ball got away only to be tapped in to make it 1-3. In the 38th minute Torrevieja conceded a free kick just outside the penalty area and square to the goal. A well struck shot sailed into the top-right of the net.
A very, very, disappointing match for all concerned. They players fought well but seemed to run out of steam towards the end, their spirits not helped by their seemingly never ending bad luck.

MATCH RESULTS for the weekend of 12th/13th April 2008
Torrevieja United Benjamins 2-5 Albatera C.F. Benjamins
Creveillente Deportivo Alevins 11-0 Torrevieja United Alevins
C.F. Rafal Infantils 12-1 Torrevieja United Infantils
A disappointing score line which was made even more hard to bear by the disgusting antics of some of the younger Rafal supporters who were spitting chewing gum and throw various objects at the Torrevieja supporters. It continued even after a Spanish parent from the Torrevieja side spoke to those responsible and also to the adults near them who appeared to condone their behaviour. If what was experienced was typical of Rafal in general, then they shouldn't be allowed in the league. They are a disgrace to their fellow countrymen!
Torrevieja made a brave start and played well in the opening minutes of the first half. However after Rafal's second goal in the 18th minute, spirits began to fade. Torrevieja had a couple of good chances but failed to finish them off. By half time Rafal were leading by 6 goals to nil.
Torrevieja continued to battle hard in the second half despite their opposition being in a class above. One brief ray of sunshine came in the 6th minute when an attack down the right lead to a cross to the centre, then to the left which was picked up by Victor Brooks and blasted in to the bottom left of the goal to make the score 6 - 1.
By the end of the match Rafal had added another six goals to make the final result 12-1.
