The good start to the season continues as the Rojillos hold out the final 25 minutes with just 10 men in scorching heat to become one of only three teams to remain unbeaten.
Lanzarote began the game superbly as they looked to get off the mark early against the Gran Canarian side.
The opening goal came in the 16th minute. Man of the match Echedey won the ball in midfield and put through on goal his Captain Rosmen, the striker drew the keeper then returned the pass unselfishly to Echedey who had the simple task of stroking the ball into the empty net and send his side 1-0 up.
The Rojillos were looking good value especially with the Colombian striker Mauri creating havoc for the Gran Canarian defence down the left flank. This lad looks exciting and will certainly score and create goals this season. At one point he beat a host of defenders and shot at goal which went into the side netting but really had he kept his composure he could have laid on a sitter to a team mate.
Unión Viera began to find their feet and were having some joy down the left wing. On one occasion a superb cross from the left found midfielder Joel but from eight yards he was unable to keep his strike down as the ball flew over the bar and Lanzarote went into the break with that slight advantage.
The second half began wonderfully for the Rojillos. Only three minutes into the second period and a poor defensive clearance found British boy Brad who on a half volley wonderfully struck the ball into the top left hand corner scoring his first goal for the Rojillos and in doing so doubling his sides lead to 2-0.
A couple of minutes later Rosmen could have killed the game off when he was put through by Echedey but unusually for the skipper he got caught in two minds whether to shoot or pass to Kennedy as he saw his effort go horribly wrong.

We wrote about the whole Gay Airlines “scam” as soon as it came to light at the end of August. Today I met with one of several unfortunate victims. He was hired by “Richard Essen” who we now know is Eduard Richard Streur, to work for the company that never actually existed. Attracted by a promised excellent salary and benefits package, he worked for six weeks without pay, and was instructed to give up his previous job to concentrate full time on the new position. Along with others, he was taken on by the company to look after all the entertainment for the planned influx of gay visitors being brought to the island on three privately chartered aircraft from the mainland of Europe. This included setting up a house band, and they even had conversations with Holly Johnson’s manager in the hope of landing him as the special celebrity entertainer for their arrival.
Eduard Richard Streur
He told me: “It all seemed so plausible at the beginning, and it was fabulous to be part of an exciting new venture, with a responsible job. Richard gave the appearance of being seriously rich, and talked often about moving €20 Million from Holland to a bank account here to fund everything.”
Several other people had been taken in similarly. read more »
