CLOSELY FOUGHT: Calahonda hosted Aston Viñuela.
Calahonda B who were striving to pull clear at the top of the Hidromaster Championship hosted Aston Viñuela at the Finca last Friday afternoon.
Aston Viñuela brought a strong team including two A team players whilst Calahonda were forced to make several changes due to injuries.
The first half was a close fought affair with both teams cancelling each other out with a long range shot from Tomas hitting the Viñuela bar.
The second half was dominated by the whites of Calahonda who despite peppering the goal could not find a way through with the Viñuela keeper making several key saves.
The closing period of the match was marred by a bad injury to key Calahonda midfielder Tomas resulting in a sin binning, and Tomas visiting the hospital post match with knee ligament damage.
Calahonda Manager Lesh Brzuzy said “Our thoughts are with Tomas to make a speedy recovery,” sentiments echoed by Viñuela Manager John Ramage, who commented “It was a hard but fair contest with Calahonda having the best of the chances, best wishes to Tomas and hopes for a speedy recovery.”
The result leaves the Championship wide open with the season now at the half way stage. Malaga took two select sides to play Boca Seniors as the home team continue to prepare to enter the leagues next season.
The results were largely unimportant, but Malaga midfielder Roberto scored a goal which one Facebook user described as “worth an entrance fee”, an outside of the foot effort from near the corner flag! The games eventually ending up in 4-0 and 5-0 wins for Malaga. The games were refereed excellently by former FA Cup referee Keith Doughty, who we are pleased to add to the list of referees.
