CD Vera 1 UD Lanzarote 2

The Rojillos still remain unbeaten after this terrific away win in Tenerife.  Lanzarote were down to ten men when new boy Miguel Gómez fired in to give his side all three points and move Lanzarote up to fourth spot.

UD Lanzarote-striker-Mauri

Both teams played a good first half with each side having one good opportunity to take the lead. In the 6th minute a Miguel Gómez header forced the Tenerife goalkeeper into a good save and in the 23rd minute Tenerife midfielder Dani Muni hit the post from a headed effort following a corner.

CD Vera began the season terribly with two losses but there last three games they have picked up seven out of nine points and were playing some good football though lacked any promise in the final third.

Whilst the first period may have been entertaining the second half proved to be much better. In the 57th minute Louis Kennedy put through striker Mauri whose pace out did the home defence and from an acute angle slid the ball under the advancing keeper to give the Rojillos a 0-1 lead.

The home side brought on striker Oscar and it was his pass in the 64thminute that gifted striker Amray the equaliser.  Things got even more problematic for the visitors when striker Mauri was given a straight red card in the 72nd minute so Lanzarote were forced to play the final twenty minutes with ten men.

We joined many islanders yesterday at the grand opening of the new boutique 4 star hotel La Isla y El Mar, in Puerto del Carmen.

La Isla y El Mar Inauguration

We were last there in December, to see how construction was going and to meet the architect, José Maria Pérez, and you can see that story here.

The property was originally called Balcón del Mar, but the massive investment has totally transformed it into a chic, beautifully detailed, very high quality hotel. All of the work commissioned has been done by Canarian companies, 80% of them from Lanzarote.
