Daya Nueva 3 v. CD Benijofar 1
Daya started very well and were playing some nice one touch football. From a corner on six minutes the ball fell nicely to Marcos whose fierce shot was well gathered by the visitors’ keeper. It was all Daya now but on ten minutes a good move from Benijofar caught the home side’s defence flat footed to score the opening goal !
Now it was the visitors who were becoming the more dominant, the goal seemed to have sucked the life out of Daya and they needed to find a way back into the game quickly or risk conceding another goal. Well the home side did just this on twenty three minutes when a great free kick from distance by Josue flew past the stranded keeper to level the scores.
Now it was the home side who were bossing the game once more. This Daya pressure soon paid dividends when a beautiful left foot strike from Marcos made it 2-1. Despite constant. pressure from Daya it was still 2-1 at the break. More of the same was needed from Daya in the second period, if Benijofar scored next it could well affect Daya mentally. The signs were good in the early stages of the second half but the home side desperately needed a third goal to give them some breathing space.
The third goal came on sixty five minutes, it was a well worked move by Daya that was finished off by Rocamora and should ensure all three points belonged to Daya. To their credit the visitors hit back straight away with a great effort of their own but Kepe’s magnificent save denied the goal the move probably deserved. Benijofar were now going hammer and tongs at Daya searching for a way back into the game but Daya’s defence held firm, well most of the time !
So 3-1 final score and what a great improvement on Daya’s performance from last week. Today there was much more energy, commitment and movement from Daya who were pushed all the way by a lively Benijofar side. Man of the Match was Fernando, he was a big influence in Daya’s back four.
