Mazarron lost ground in the promotion race with a disappointing 1-0 home defeat to rivals Gesa Seguros Churra who moved up into fifth place in the league with this victory.
Mazarron were without key players Alfonso and Alcaraz due to holiday commitments but this did not excuse a below par performance in which they hardly managed a shot on target during the whole game.
Jose Ruben and Gilberto combined down the right after five minutes and Gilberto’s cross found Cecilio whose shot was blocked by a defender and Juanillo’s attempt to follow up was also blocked.
Neither side was able to create any clear cut opportunities in the early stages but the visitors took the lead after 29 minutes when a hopeful through ball caught the Mazarron defence out of position and Miralles ignored shouts for offside and ran on to lob the ball over the advancing Mazarron keeper Ruben into the empty net.
Mazarron’s only other attempts in the first half were a header by Juan Andreo from Tico’s corner and a 20 yard drive by Cecilio both of which sailed over the bar.
Mazarron could have equalised after 52 minutes when Jose Ruben just failed to reach an excellent cross from Randry and could only manage to touch the ball wide of the far post. The game became very scrappy with constant interruptions for petty free kicks but Mazarron keeper Ruben kept his team in the game after 70 minutes. Another through ball had again exposed the home defence but Ruben dived bravely at the feet of the inrushing Churra forward to prevent what seemed a certain goalscoring opportunity.
In the fifth minute of stoppage time Tico’s 30 yard drive went just wide but at the other end Ruben had to react sharply to tip a Churra free kick over the bar before the referee blew the final whistle. It was a poor game and Mazarron could not, in all honesty, have any complaints about the result.
Team: Ruben, Gilberto, Juan Andreo, Dani (Jose Da), Randry, Juanillo (Fran), Tico, Moha, Alcon, Jose Ruben, Cecilio.
Man of the Match: Cecilio
