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 »
The Rojillos fought bravely against a youthful second placed Tenerife B team on a roasting Sunday afternoon and were worthy to earn a point.
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 »

The Rojillos brief good run of two wins on the bounce came to an end just 15 seconds into the match against CD Vera who are deep into a relegation battle.
From the kick off a cross from midfielder Dani was met on the volley by striker Oscar sending the leagues bottom club into a 1-0 lead.
Moments later and Rojillos striker Yaco almost levelled the score but his effort flew off the post and away to safety.
The Tenerife side then began dominating midfield and had many opportunities to double their lead but with a combination of poor finishing and good goalkeeping from the impressive Lanzarote number one, the score remained with CD Vera going into the break with the lead albeit with the narrowest of margins.
The second half began brightly for the Rojillos with read more »

It has been five long months since the Rojillos tasted victory on the road but thanks to an assist by British lad Louis Kennedy and a finish from Yaco late on, that terrible statistic has come to an end.
After last week’s disappointing home defeat Rojillos manager Adolfo Pérez decided to introduce two junior players into the starting line up, defender Acaymo and striker Echedey Gómez.
The Tenerife side one place above Lanzarote prior to the match began the better of the two sides. The Rojillos defence was strong but upfront only looked dangerous on set pieces. The visitors were content with the game scoreless going into the half time break.
The home side kept up the same tempo in the second period but as Lanzarote grew in confidence as they began to claw their way into the game.
With five minutes left on the clock read more »
