Will the threat of a new common enemy unite them again to save the world?

Directed by Zack Snyder, starring Ben Affleck as Batman/Bruce Wayne, Henry Cavill as Superman/Clark Kent, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor as well as Diane Lane, Jeremy Irons and Holly Hunter among many others.

UD Lanzarote 3 UD Telde 0

The Rojillos return to the league summit after a six week absence following an outstanding first half display against the eighth placed side UD Telde.

Prior to the match manager Adolfo Pérez had invited 10 of their foreign fans to join the squad for breakfast at the Sands Beach resort in Costa Teguise. A good touch from Lanzarote´s longest ever serving manager.

Lanzarote began the match with a spring in their step and were totally dominant from as soon as the ref whistled for the start of the match until he blew for half time. The Gran Canarian side just could not get out of their own half as the Rojillos midfield governed by Vladi and Javi Betancort were closing down their opponents, forcing errors and regaining possession the instant it was lost.

In the 16th minute Rosmen leapt towards the sky and perfectly angled his cushioned header into the path of Toñito, the veteran winger had one touch then struck the ball with venom into the left hand corner from 15 yards to send his side into a well deserved 1-0 lead.

Only two minutes later and Toñito was at it again. This time he cut inside his defender on the left wing and from just inside the box fired in a curling drive which the keeper did superbly well by getting his fingers onto it and tipping over for a corner.

The second goal was inevitable. In the 25th minute Toñito put a through ball down the middle and Rosmen left his defender for dead on a diagonal run and slipped the ball under the advancing keeper to give his side daylight with a 2-0 advantage.

Attacking midfielder Ayoze Pérez, built stocky with the bald head and wearing number seven rejoined Lanzarote in  read more »
