An avalanche of goals in one of the most entertaining matches ever played in Lanzarote. From the moment the Ref blew to start the game until the very end it was impossible to takes your eyes off the play.
The Rojillos will be a little disappointed after taking a 4-2 lead with 10 men but the Gran Canarian side were well worthy of a point.
A victory here would have sent Lanzarote top of the league but nobody expected an easy game against a side that spent many years with Lanzarote in the league above Segunda B (League 1).
The visitors almost scored in the opening minute. Futre the small bald headed number 10 who was the engine of the Gran Canarian side swept in a corner and as the ball fell the Lanzarote keeper Agoney managed to pounce on it before a striker could fire it home.
The Rojillos response was to take the lead in the 7th minute. Great work from the Colombian Mauri who won the ball on the right wing, he in turn fed Kilian and the bushy haired midfielder sent a lovely ball in to his skipper Rosmen. Lanzarote´s top striker made no mistake nodding the ball into the net from six yards and sending his side 1-0 up and also sent himself to the top of the goal scoring charts with 11 strikes for this season.
The lead was only held for five minutes as ex Rojillo Yeray Ortega drove in a shot and with a slight deflection beat the Lanzarote keeper to make the score 1-1.
In the 19th minute the visitors completely turned the score around as the 35 year old Yeray Ortega broke down the left wing and delivered a great low cross which was finished off superbly by striker Romario to give his side a 1-2 lead.
The Conejeros (Locals) had two great chances to even the score. Toñito who was on fire hit the bar from a free kick and Rosmen saw his header well saved by the Gran Canarian keeper.
The fifth placed side came so close to making it read more »

With so many of our readers breaking up for their Christmas holidays today, I felt it was time for my annual Christmas reflection post.
We set up Lanzarote Information in 2008. Europe was in the grip of a deep recession, and the island was struggling with low tourist numbers and occupancy, with businesses going bust and far too many islanders unemployed. Our original aims were simple:

2/ To promote the island effectively to English speaking tourists in order to bring them here and encourage them to keep on visiting. read more »
