MAZARRON LEAVE IT LATE

Mazarron FC 1 Jumilla CD 0
With Poyato replacing the injured Juan Andres in central defence and Rivero supporting Robert up front, Mazarron played a slightly more attacking system than recently. They were rewarded with a victory against Jumilla which moved them up to 15th place in the league.
In the 8th minute a long throw in was met on the volley by Rivero but unfortunately his goal bound shot was deflected wide and from the resulting corner, Rollon headed wide when well placed.
Further Mazarron pressure revealed the Jumilla goalkeeper’s lack of confidence but despite being well on top for most of the first half there was no score at half time. Jumilla’s only real attempt on goal was thwarted by a good save from Jose after 42 minutes.
In the second half Rollon was booked for an off the ball incident and then Abdel blazed the ball over when put through by Rollon. Jumilla came into the game more and there were several good chances at both ends. For Mazarron, Abdel and Robert both had shots saved by the keeper and after 71 minutes a Jumilla forward headed over with no one near him!
Edin then had a clear chance but shot weakly at the keeper.
As time began to run out Mazarron really applied the pressure and, in injury time, a series of three consecutive corners and a throw in saw the ball arrive in the box for Pescau to hammer home his third goal of the weekend, his first two being for the juniors on Saturday.
It gave Mazarron a well deserved victory, although the margin of victory could have been much greater.
