The game in Tenerife was littered with yellow cards as well as three red which prevented the flow of the match.The first opportunity fell to Lanzarote with striker Quintero forcing a good save from the Santa Úrsula keeper.

In the 24th minute the home side were awarded a free kick on the edge of the box. On the first attempt the Ref booked Miguel for blocking the free kick as the official believed that the Lanzarote left back moved before the whistle. On the second attempt the Tenerife defender made no mistake when he placed his left foot strike into the top right hand corner with the ball hitting the underside of the bar leaving Rojillos keeper Agoney no chance and giving his side a 1-0 lead.  read more »
