UD Lanzarote 2 Union Viera 1

The good start to the season continues as the Rojillos hold out the final 25 minutes with just 10 men in scorching heat to become one of only three teams to remain unbeaten.

Man-of-the-match-Echedey-UD Lanzarote

Lanzarote began the game superbly as they looked to get off the mark early against the Gran Canarian side.

The opening goal came in the 16th minute. Man of the match Echedey won the ball in midfield and put through on goal his Captain Rosmen, the striker drew the keeper then returned the pass unselfishly to Echedey who had the simple task of stroking the ball into the empty net and send his side 1-0 up.

The Rojillos were looking good value especially with the Colombian striker Mauri creating havoc for the Gran Canarian defence down the left flank. This lad looks exciting and will certainly score and create goals this season. At one point he beat a host of defenders and shot at goal which went into the side netting but really had he kept his composure he could have laid on a sitter to a team mate.

Unión Viera began to find their feet and were having some joy down the left wing. On one occasion a superb cross from the left found midfielder Joel but from eight yards he was unable to keep his strike down as the ball flew over the bar and Lanzarote went into the break with that slight advantage.

The second half began wonderfully for the Rojillos. Only three minutes into the second period and a poor defensive clearance found British boy Brad who on a half volley wonderfully struck the ball into the top left hand corner scoring his first goal for the Rojillos and in doing so doubling his sides lead to 2-0.

A couple of minutes later Rosmen could have killed the game off when he was put through by Echedey but unusually for the skipper he got caught in two minds whether to shoot or pass to Kennedy as he saw his effort go horribly wrong.

UD Telde 0, UD Lanzarote 0

A goalless draw this may have ended but Rojillos manager Adolfo Peréz may feel a little aggrieved that his side were wrongly disallowed a goal for offside, had a huge appeal for a penalty turned down and a 35 yard free kick from British lad Brad Cockerill which was brilliantly saved by the Gran Canarian keeper.

Brad & Louis UD Lanzarote

It wasn’t until the half hour mark that this game burst into life. A free kick on the far left wing was swept in and was then flicked on into the path of Rosmen, the tall striker finished off with a volley firing the ball home. It was a close call but following the video replay the Lanzarote captain was unlucky not to have put his side in front.

The home side had equal possession to Lanzarote but were not causing the Lanzarote number one Agoney any problems as the half ended.

The second half began as the first half had with both teams not creating much. On the hour mark Lanzarote were reduced to ten men when midfielder Marcos Cabrera picked up his second yellow card.

This did seem to inspire the Rojillos as  read more »

UD Lanzarote 1 Club Atletico Granadilla 0

A super start in their first home game for the Rojillos (The Reds), a solitary goal early in the second half against last season’s champions by the lively Colombian Mauri earnt the Rojillos their first maximum points.

Outstanding-performance-by-the-new-signing-Mauri-topped-with-the-winning-goal

Lanzarote began the match at a good pace and after just two minutes a good cross from Rosmen was agonizingly inches away from the boot of Mauri and Kennedy.

The hosts dominated the early exchanges and it wasn’t until the 20th minute that the Tenerife side imposed their first threat of danger, a good solo run by Josimar was abruptly ended when Rojillos defender Raúl slid in to claim the ball as the striker was about to unleash.

In the 37th minute the temperamental super Lanzarote winger again showed his dark side as he got involved in a brawl and was shown the red card, fortunately for Lanzarote the visitors also had a player sent off during the handbags at ten paces.

If it had been difficult to play in the intense heat at the start of play now both teams had to play the rest of the match with just ten men apiece whilst the heat was peaking in the mid 30´s.

Just before the break 18 year old Brad Cockerill had his first  read more »
