The Gran Canarian side had asked Lanzarote if the match could be brought forward a day which assisted the visiting side reduce the cost of their travel expenses. Only a few seasons ago Vecindario were playing their football in the second tier of Spanish football but as with so many Spanish clubs they are finding it difficult to survive financially.

In the 35th minute the visitors should have been one up as striker Rubén Quesada was clean through with just the keeper to beat. The Lanzarote keeper Agoney stood tall until the last moment then saved his side as he has done on many occasion to keep the score goalless.

Lanzarote keep on getting good results over the league’s best teams. The fourth placed La Palma side who were desperate for points as they occupy the last playoff position were undone by a committed Rojillo side.

The kick off should have been at 1.15pm rather than the traditional noon kick off to assist the La Palma side with their connecting flights in Tenerife. Unfortunately the plane from Tenerife was delayed so they arrived at the ground at kick off time to a hostile reception from the Lanzarote faithful. Nobody seemed to mind as it was a lovely sunny afternoon and the bar was fully stocked for the thirsty fans.

From the opening whistle both teams showed their intention by not backing out of any challenges and it was easy to see this was going to be another entertaining match.

Mensajero looked sharp following back to back wins and knew that a win today could see them go top of the table. Lanzarote are around mid table and had nothing to play for except pride which they showed an abundance of.

The first half hour was at a great pace largely thanks to the referee as he let many challenges go unpunished but in the end to prevent all out war he was forced to show his yellow card on nine occasions such was the commitment between both sides.

The Rojillos knew they were going to have to work hard against a side that has only conceded 15 goals in  read more »

Despite the heat the game began at a good pace and just six minutes into the match the Conejeros (locals) took a surprise lead over one of the leagues promotion favourites.

A good run and cross from right back Camacho was met at an awkward height for Rojillos striker Rosmen but Lanzarote´s leading scorer wrapped his foot around the ball and fired home from eight yards.

The Tenerife side immediately went in search of an equaliser. Winger Jairo was causing the Lanzarote defence nightmares, his blistering pace left the defenders trailing as he  read more »
