Mazarron FC win but lose out on play offs


Mazarron FC 1 – UD Los Garres 0

DESPITE A late goal which gave them victory on the day, Mazarron failed to qualify for the Play-Off Final losing the tie 2-1 on aggregate.

Mazarron started at a good pace and made the early running but were forced to make a substitution after only 10 minutes when Andreo was brought down with a heavy tackle.

Los Garres were happy to defend and hang on to their two goal advantage but Juan Pedro in the Mazarron goal was then forced to make an excellent save to keep his team in the game.

Mazarron continued to press forward with some excellent crosses into the box but, too often, headers were misplaced and the danger averted,

The home side soon took control again at the start of the second half encouraged by the vociferous home support.

They were rewarded with a penalty when Javi Torrano was fouled in the box following a Marcos free kick but the usually dependable Juan Andreo’s spot kick was too precise and saved by the Los Garres keeper.

Los Garres employed some dubious time wasting tactics and there was a spate of yellow cards for both teams.

Miguel was then sent off for Mazarron along with a Los Garres player before Mazarron had a real chance as the Los Garres keeper was completely out of position but none of the Mazarron players were able to take advantage.
Just as hopes were fading, a Mazarron corner was cleared to the feet of Chino who made no mistake to give Mazarron the lead after 87 minutes.

Despite an added six minutes of injury time, Mazarron were unable to score another goal which would have taken the tie into extra time and promotion hopes were over for another season.

Man of the Match – Raul Torrano.
