One week shy of three months and the Rojillos finally return to winning ways. An extremely comfortable win with two goals for striker Rosmen and a cracking free kick from Captain Jotha move Lanzarote out of the bottom three and with six of the next eight games at home this gives the Rojillos a fantastic opportunity to climb the league table.
The Rojillos dominated this match from the outset with the Lanzarote keeper being almost a spectator throughout the 90 minutes.
The first good chance fell to Jotha in the 13th minute; his powerful free kick was well saved by the debutant goalkeeper Francisco but with total possession it still took six minutes before the break until the deadlock was broken. A hesitant Gomera defence allowed Rosmen to nod home and give Lanzarote a 1-0 lead to take into the half time break.

Lanzarote once again press the self destruct button. Going a goal down eight minutes before half time and then before the break the Rojillos had a player red carded and conceded another goal in stoppage time.
The Conejeros (locals) began the game brightly with midfielder Kevin Camacho setting up winger Toñito for a strike on goal but unfortunately the 27 year old saw his effort narrowly miss its target.
The Tenerife side then looked as though they had gone in front in the 19thminute when defender Nacor rose brilliantly at the far post from a corner kick, his well cushioned header travelled back along towards the other post then fortunately from a Rojillos point of view past the upright for a goal kick.
Both sides were on the attack with Rosmen hitting a post for Lanzarote and then a great save from Rojillos keeper Marco Machín prevented the visitors going in front.
In the 37th minute and out of the blue a fabulous read more »

Yesterday the first of the shorter Ironman distance races took place on the island. The “70.3” refers to the distance in miles. What that means to us is a 1.9KM swim in the lagoon at Club La Santa, a 90KM bike ride, which went from La Santa, through Famara, Teguise and Tahiche, then along to Arrieta, before climbing up Tabayesco and back to Teguise and finally La Santa. The final phase was a 21.1KM half marathon run in three KM loops from Club La Santa to the village and back.
Almost 800 competitors were enrolled, and there were a fair number of elite pro athletes entered. At stake were places in all age groups for the Ironman 70.3 championships in Las Vegas. read more »

Two goals in two minutes midway through the first half gave the Rojillos there traditional mountain to climb though a spirited second half fight back almost saw Lanzarote claim all three points.
The Conejeros (Locals) started brightly with right back Camacho shot come cross hitting the bar in the third minute. The home side dominated possession but when the Tenerife side got the ball they immediately gave it to their left winger Leandro who´s brilliant foot work and pace had the Rojillo defence in sixes and sevens the whole match.
In the 19th minute the Rojillos half cleared a corner only to find the ball arrive at Leandro´s feet. The small winger may only have a tiny frame but he unleashed a brilliant powerful drive and though the Lanzarote keeper got a hand to the ball he could only steer it into the roof of the net giving the visitors a 0-1 lead.

Whilst a draw away in Tenerife against the side that pipped Lanzarote to the last playoff position last season may seem reasonable, the Rojillos (The Reds) are desperate for that feeling of a win which they have only experienced once this season and that was on the opening day.
The home side began the better knowing that their opponents have the knack of conceding early and after only three minutes should have gone in front. Defender Donato found striker Samu free in the centre of the Lanzarote box, his rushed effort narrowly whisked past the upright to the relief of the fragile Lanzarote defence.
The Rojillos soon found their footing and in the eighth minute Lanzarote´s most dangerous player this season Miguel Yunes fired a shot come cross which narrowly missed the target.
Lanzarote began to dominate but just couldn’t read more »
