The Rojillos fight back from 1-2 down with 10 men to draw level in the final minute of play with a penalty converted by Lanzarote’s top scorer Rubén Rodriguez.
The opening stages of the game did not flow well with the Referee stopping and starting the game with unnecessary free kicks being awarded to both sides. The Conejeros (locals) then began to start enjoying the majority of the ball and in the 9th minute the home side took the lead. A free kick swung into the six yard box from Rubén was chased by Carlitos, without touching the ball his run deceived both defence and goalkeeper and the ball ended up in the bottom left hand corner giving Lanzarote a fortunate 1-0 lead. The Rojillos were now looking to increase their lead. In the 25th minute an inch perfect through ball from Jotha found Carlitos but the striker got the ball stuck under his feet and he was crowded out of the way by a host of Tenerife defenders. A minute later and a 20 yard effort from left back Juachi looked destined for the top left hand corner but the Tenerife keeper acrobatically dived and brilliantly saved with his right hand and only conceded a corner kick. The Tenerife manager was not happy with what he was seeing and on the half hour he ordered two of his subs Airam the leagues top scorer, and ex- Rojillo Oscar Martin to warm up. This seemed to do the trick as the Primera Liga’s B side gradually edged back into the game and went into the half time break trailing by a single goal. read more »

Helen Stevens a well recognised face in Playa Blanca unfortunately lost her fight against cancer on 5th February 2010 aged only 25. A popular waitress in La Bocaina Restaurant in Playa Blanca Helen was always a welcome face there. But more often than that Helen would be recognised out in the town usually singing in the various bars on karaoke with her powerful but elegant singing voice and making everyone enjoy themselves with her infectious laugh. Originally only visiting the island for two weeks to visit her friends Paul & Nina Ecob at the restaurant like many she ended up staying for over two years.
The resort of Playa Blanca will sadly miss Helen and so the owners of La Bocaina restaurant and many local residents are putting together a charity evening to celebrate her life. A charity dinner, auction and raffle amongst other fundraising efforts are being organised for the 17th of April to raise money for her family's choice charity Cancer Research UK . The restaurant will be donating 50% of the ticket directly to the charity as well as the usage of the restaurant throughout the afternoon and evening for other fundraising efforts. read more »
