14/12/2014    CD ALBERCA 1 MAZARRON FC 1


Mazarron gave a much improved and battling performance against fourth placed CD Alberca and earned a deserved 1-1 draw.

Alberca almost took the lead in the sixth minute when their striker dribbled round Conejo in the Mazarron goal only to lose his footing as he was about to shoot. Mazarron’s first attempt on goal did not come until the 21st minute when Manu’s free kick was deflected for a corner. Monty’s flag kick was scrambled clear by Alberca with Mazarron appealing for a penalty for handball.

Monty and Tolo then combined well but Tolo’s shot was saved by the keeper. After 30 minutes Tolo’s through ball put Manu in the clear but his shot was turned round the post for a corner. At the other end a tremendous goalmouth scramble saw Mazarron defenders blocking three shots in succession before the ball was finally cleared.

Alberca came more into the game and Conejo had to be alert in the Mazarron goal with two excellent saves. Enrique was injured and replaced by Cristian in a bizarre incident. Cristian came onto the field only to be asked by the referee to remove a shirt which he had on under his blue Mazarron shirt. The linesman clearly signalled that it was OK for him to come back on to the field of play only for the referee to show Cristian a yellow card much to the anger of the Mazarron supporters who were directly behind the incident.

Conejo was again in action in the early stages of the second half making two more good saves before three Mazarron players were booked in succession for complaining about a decision by the referee. After 61 minutes an attempted clearance by Lorca struck Mateo, his own player, on the back and rebounded just wide of the post for a corner to Alberca.

Tolo was again Mazarron’s main threat up front and he had two good efforts saved, the second in the 65th minute when, following a free kick by Dani, he swivelled to hit a right foot shot just wide. Conejo then had to dive smartly to his right to foil an Alberca attack before Tolo hit a fierce drive which was scrambled around the post for a corner by the Alberca keeper.

Alberca took the lead after 79 minutes when Perez slipped inside Lorca before sliding the ball past Conejo. The lead was short lived as the irrepressible Tolo burst through the Alberca defence before firing home the equaliser for his tenth goal of the season. Manu was sent off for a second yellow card but Mazarron managed to hold out for the rest of the game including 7 minutes of added time.

Team: Conejo, Alfonso, Enrique (Cristian), Dani, Lorca, Juanillo, Mateo, Monty, Manu, Diego (Israel), Tolo

Man of the Match: Conejo




Mazarron lost further ground in the race for promotion with a dismal home performance against a team which had lost 3-1 at home the previous to the team at the bottom of the league.

 On a playing surface which is an embarrassment to Mazarron, Thader were always in control of a game in which the home team were tactically inept relying once again on the long ball in the hope that leading scorer Tolo would beat the opposition on his own.

 Thader started strongly but it was Mazarron who took the lead after nine minutes. Manu’s left wing cross was met spectacularly on the volley by Tolo whose shot screamed into the back of the net for his ninth goal of the season.

 Liders and Enrique both had shots off target for Mazarron before Conejo had to dive to his right to save well following a Thader attack in the 25th minute. Four minutes later Thader almost equalised after a goalmouth scramble but the resultant shot went just wide. Then Liders went close for Mazarron when he latched onto a pass from Tolo but his shot was diverted for a corner.

 Thader were coming more into the game and equalised after 35 minutes when a right wing cross was hammered home at the near post giving Conejo no chance.

 Thader started the second half well and took the lead after 62 minutes with a soft goal. A right wing corner was headed goalwards but Alfonso and Conejo got in each other’s way and the ball trickled over the line.

 Two minutes later, Tolo burst through the Thader defence but his fierce shot rebounded off the post. Thader went further ahead in the 68th minute when a cross field ball was driven goalwards but deflected into his own net by Lorca.

 Cristian was finally introduced after 70 minutes and combined well with Tolo whose shot was well over the bar. At the other end Conejo had to be alert to smother an attack from Thader before the ball rebounded goalwards off Lorca and Conejo had to come to the rescue again.

 Mazarron were unable to put together any meaningful attacks until a free kick from Alfonso was volleyed just wide by Cristian in injury time. After a promising start to the season the long suffering Mazarron fans are again having their hopes dashed and action is urgently needed to improve both results and the style of play.


Team: Conejo, Alfonso, Andreo, Dani, Lorca, Manu, Liders (Juanillo), Enrique, Monty (Cristian), Diego (Israel), Tolo.

 Man of the Match: Tolo



Mazarron dropped out of the play-off positions with a 2-0 defeat away to Espinardo Atletico despite having 75% of possession in a game played on an artificial surface which barely confirmed to the minimum width regulations.

 Without Antonio Jose and Mateo at the back, Mazarron had to play juvenile midfielder Andreo as a central defender alongside Dani with four other juveniles also on the substitutes bench.

 Mazarron were cheered on by a good number of supporters in appalling weather conditions, the constant driving rain making life difficult for players and spectators alike. Liders shot wide after just two minutes and Mazarron then forced two corners both of which came to nothing. At the other end an Espinardo free kick was easily saved by Conejo and a mistake by Lorca let in one of the home strikers who shot against the cross bar.

 Espinardo took the lead after 20 minutes when Dani misjudged the pace of a through ball allowing Alejandro to run on, round Conejo and place the ball into an empty net. Thereafter, it was all Mazarron with Tolo almost scoring on two occasions, once when he superbly rounded the last defender before seeing his shot smothered by the Espinardo keeper.

 Monty’s free kick after 28 minutes was just too high and then, a minute later a superb free kick from Alfonso crashed against the bar before rebounding to Monty who volleyed over. Espinardo went close when a free kick was headed just wide before Tolo unleashed a left foot shot from outside the penalty area which was touched around the post for a corner by the home keeper.

 Mazarron continued to dominate in the early stages of the second half forcing numerous corners, all of which were headed clear by the strong Espinardo defence. Tolo was always in the thick of the action and once again came close when he volleyed Monty’s free kick only to see it rebound off a defender when goalbound.

 Little was seen of Espinardo as an attacking force but their defence kept a tight rein on the Mazarron forwards with three men in attendance every time Tolo had the ball. The home team committed numerous fouls outside the penalty area but Mazarron were unable to convert any of the resulting free-licks although Lider’s left foot effort was headed off the line for a corner.

 With five minutes to go the referee awarded a free kick to Espinardo on the right and Gonzalez rose unchallenged to place a firm header past Conejo to make the final score 2-0.

 Team: Conejo, Alfonso (Jhony), Andreo, Dani, Lorca, Juanillo (Stevens), Monty, Liders, Manu (Cristian), Diego, Tolo.

 Man of the Match:  Lorca





Mazarron continued their push for promotion with an emphatic 4-1 home victory over Blanca Telecanal.

 They took the lead after 12 minutes when Tolo found space on the right. After beating two men his shot rebounded off the post to Diego who tapped the ball home from two yards.

 Mazarron continued to press forward but Conejo had to be alert and raced off his line twice in quick succession to thwart breakaways from Blanca Telecanal.

 At the other end Tolo was causing all sorts of problems for the visitors’ defence. He broke clear only to see his shot saved and then, after another mazy run, appeared to be brought down in the penalty area but the referee waved play on.

 For the second half Cristian replaced Juanillo for Mazarron and was immediately in the action when he hit a fierce shot goalwards from 25 yards which appeared to hit a defender on the arm before being diverted for a corner. The flag kick found Dani at the far post and the central defender forced the ball over the line to make it 2-0.

 The visitors should have reduced the arrears in the 61st minute when a long ball saw their striker racing through but he shot wide off the post with only Conejo to beat. Two minutes later they were awarded a penalty but Conejo dived to his right to make an excellent save from the spot kick.

 Mazarron made them pay for this miss with the best goal of the game after 67 minutes. Andreo’s diagonal ball found Cristian racing towards the corner on the right. Cristian turned and hit a superb looping shot over the keeper’s head and into the roof of the net to make it 3-0.

 Tolo was unlucky again when he swivelled to hit a fierce left foot shot which was tipped around the post by the Blanca keeper but the visitors reduced the arrears after 77 minutes when Carlos Fernandez was allowed to run through and he placed his shot past Conejo into the corner of the net.

 Mazarron replied almost immediately when substitute Stalin’s excellent cross saw Tolo hit a first time shot into the roof off the net to make the final score 4-1.

 Man of the Match: Conejo


16/11/2014 Sporting Camposol 0 Mazarron FC 1

Mazarron came out on top in the first ever derby between the two local teams watched by a good crowd with an excellent atmosphere.

The game started quite slowly but Mazarron had the first chance in the 5th minute when Mateo found Alfonso who shot wide. Mazarron’s keeper Carrasco was then injured following a corner from Sporting Camposol. He played on for a further 10 minutes but finally had to be replaced in goal by Pablo a juvenile.

In the 20th minute Sporting Camposol  had a free kick which was deflected for a corner followed by a good save by Pablo who came to the rescue again a few minutes later when he raced out  of goal to make a further  good clearance. Mazarron suffered another blow when Antonio Jose was injured and replaced by crowd favourite Cecilio to great applause.

Mazarron began to take control and had three or four good chances, most falling to leading scorer Tolo although Camposol did have one chance of their own. However, two minutes before half time Cecilio opened his account for the season when he headed Mazarron into the lead.                                             
In the second half Tolo was soon into action again and in the 60th minute saw a long range shot go narrowly over the bar. Five minutes later Sporting Camposol came near to an equalising goal but the game then became fairly open with neither side gaining the upper hand.

In the 80th minute Mazarron’s Manu  was shown a straight red card and the game started to get a little out of hand with a number of bookings and the teams were evened up in the 83rd minute when former Mazarron striker Boudia was sent off for Sporting Camposol.

The final whistle came with Mazarron taking the three points and moving back into a play off position.

Mazarron earned a creditable draw against high flying La Hoya Lorca in an entertaining game at the Estadio Municipal. Mazarron were almost at full strength and welcomed back Cecilio on the substitutes’ bench for the first time since his return from work commitments in France. 

Mazarron started the game brightly with a number of attacks from free-flowing passing movements, a pleasant change from recent weeks. Tolo and Cristian were combining well up front and a spectacular overhead kick by Tolo went just wide. La Hoya were restricted to sporadic attacks and after 35 minutes another good passing move from Mazarron ended with a great cross from Manu finding Tolo whose volley from a narrow angle went just wide. 

However, in Mazarron’s next attack, Tolo was fouled in the penalty area and got up to despatch the resultant spot kick into the net to give Mazarron a 1-0 half time lead. 

Mazarron continued to dominate the early stages of the second half, another excellent move ending with Tolo’s dangerous cross evading all the onrushing attackers. Then in the 54th minute Liders free kick was headed just over the bar by Enrique. 

Despite Mazarron’s pressure, La Hoya equalised two minutes later when a right wing cross was headed home by Alcaraz leaving Carrasco in the Mazarron goal with no chance. Mazarron introduced Chema and Cecilio in an attempt to get the winning goal and Cecilio immediately had an impact, forcing a corner from which Tolo shot over the bar. 

La Hoya were reduced to ten men in the 69th minute when one of their players received a second yellow card after an altercation with a linesman. Mazarron continued to try to press home their one man advantage with Tolo working tirelessly up front but were unable to create any clear cut chances in the remaining minutes and the game ended in a creditable 1-1 draw.

Man of the Match: Tolo




Mazarron lost for the second week running losing 1-0 at CD Esparragal who leapfrogged above Mazarron in the league, leaving the visitors in eighth position but still only one point off a play-off place. 

Without top scorer Tolo, Mazarron welcomed back crowd favourite Cristian after his brief spell in France and gained an early corner which came to nothing. Esparragal had most of the play in the first twenty minutes with Carrasco in the Mazarron goal dealing competently with anything thrown out him.

 Most of Mazarron’s attacks were constructed by Cristian but they were unable to carve out and clear cut opportunities. On 25 minutes the Mazarron defence managed to scramble the ball off the goal line and the resultant corner was wasted by Esparragal. Most of the attacking for the remained of the first half was by Esparragal but Mazarron’s first half performance had been much improved on recent weeks

 The second half began in similar vein with Esparragal on the attack with occasional breaks by Mazarron and especially by the young substitute Esteban who made some exciting forays down the right wing, one of which ended with a shot from a narrow angle which was saved by the Esparragal keeper.

 The only goal of the game came after 60 minutes when a through ball dissected the Mazarron defence and Francisco ran on to steer the ball past Carrasco.

 For some reason at or about the 85th minute Mazarron decided that they had to do something about the one goal deficit and mounted attack after attack on the Esparragal defence, all the forwards and substitutes showing up well in the opposition penalty area. However, all of this came far too late and the referee blew with only a minute of added time.

Mazarron are at home to La Hoya Lorca CF next weekend.

26/10/2014  MAZARRON FC 0 SFC MINERVA 2 

Minerva gave a very early warning of why they are second in the league because within two minutes they had two attempts on the Mazarron goal, a shot and a header going just over the bar. Mazarron did manage to get a corner in the fourth minute with the resultant shot just over the Minerva bar, but this turned out to be a fairly rare incident.

In the 12th and 13th minutes Minerva had three corners in quick succession and always seemed to be able to place the ball into areas of danger for Mazarron. In the 20th minute Conejo pulled off an excellent save from an incisive Minerva attack, and this clearly helped him on his way to the Man of the Match award, as he had to come to Mazarron’s assistance on a number of occasions later on.

Mazarron’s first meaningful attack came in the 35th minute from a free kick which came in low and Manu nearly found the net. However, this was followed by some sustained Minerva attacks and in the 38th minute the Mazarron defence was breached by a header from a Minerva attacker which Conejo was unable to reach and Mazarron went in to half time a goal down.

From the kick-off at the start of the second half,  Mazarron mounted an attack and Israel was quite clearly fouled either just outside or on the Minerva penalty area boundary; it wasn’t given – this was one where the referee got it wrong!

There followed a number of Minerva attacks resulting in a number of corners but thankfully none that threatened to add to their one goal lead. However, Minerva increased their lead after an hour following the award of a controversial free kick for a back pass by a Mazarron defender. Although the initial free kick was cleared the ball fell invitingly for a Minerva forward to hammer into the net.

Tolo and Alfonso came close to reducing the arrears for Mazarron but, in the end, Minerva ran out deserved winners.

 C D JUVENIA 1 MAZARRON FC 2  19/10/2014


Mazarron defied all the odds with two goals in the last five minutes to win a game in which they had been reduced to nine men following the sendings off of Chema and Lorca.

The first half was a fairly drab affair with neither side able to impose any authority on the game although Tolo once burst through only to push the ball a little too far forward allowing the Juvenia keeper to run out and gather it safely. Then, after 38 minutes a break down the right wing involving three Mazarron players, found Tolo in a good position but with just too much of an angle to get a good shot away, and the ball ended up in the side netting – when a few of the visiting supporters thought it had gone in.

Apart from a couple of scares, both involving Mazarron keeper Conejo, Juvenia were unable to muster any real efforts in a disappointing first half which ended goalless.

The second half did not start any better with both teams again seeming woefully short of attacking ideas although Diego contrived to balloon the ball over the bar after 52 minutes when a Mazarron free kick was only half cleared by the Juvenia defence. Mazarron were now coming more and more into the game and a shot from Tolo after 60 minutes seemed to hit the arm of a Juvenia defender, only for the referee to award a corner rather than a penalty kick.

However, five minutes later Juvenia took the lead after been awarded a free kick 25 metres from goal.  Javier’s free kick nestled in the back of the net before Mazarron keeper Conejo had chance to move. Chema replaced Liders for Mazarron and within two minutes had received a yellow card for an over enthusiatic challenge. To make matters worse he received a second yellow card a few minutes later after remonstrating with a linesman leaving Mazarron reduced to ten men.

Within five minutes Lorca had joined Chema for an early bath after receiving his second yellow card and Mazarron’s position now seemed hopeless. However, their fighting spirit was never more evident and they spend the last 10 minutes of the game bombarding the Juvenia goal and were rewarded by two goals from Diego in the 85th and 89th minutes to earn a famous victory and keep Mazarron in fifth place in the league.

MAZARRON FC 2 A.D. PLIEGO 2  12/10/2014


In a game they were expected to win comfortably, Mazarron had to overcome a two-goal half time deficit to fight back in the second half and eventually equalise with two Tolo penalties.


The first half saw Mazarron relying on the through ball to Tolo while Pliego attacked in numbers with sometimes three or four forwards in support, Tolo had Mazarron’s best early chance with a left foot shot wide of the post but, at the other end, Conejo had to be at his best on two occasions to keep out the Pliego attack.


Pliego took the lead after 30 minutes when a corner was cleared by the Mazarron defence but only as far as the Pliego No 21 whose shot looped over Conejo and into the Mazarron net. Worse was to follow two minutes later when a Pliego left wing cross escaped all the defenders and was turned it at the far post to make it 2-0.


Mazarron’s hopes seemed to have disappeared totally when captain Alfonso was sent off in the 44th minute having received two yellow cards in as many minutes.


However, two penalties were awarded to Mazarron in the first few minutes of the second half and both were successfully despatched by leading scorer Tolo, taking his tally to six for the season so far. There should have been a third penalty for Mazarron when a Pliego defender clearly handled in the penalty area but perhaps the referee had had enough controversy for the day!!!


Despite being down to ten man it was Mazarron who continued to push forward and shots from Tolo, Diego and Enrique went wide of the Pliego goal. At the other end Pliego’s few attacks were comfortably dealt with by the Mazarron defence.


Team: Conejo, Lorca, Dani, Antonio Jose, Said (Chema), Enrique, Alfonso, Israel (Manu), Diego (Mateo), Tolo (Javi), Liders


Man of the Match: Tolo



Enrique’s headed goal in the 80th minute gave Mazarron a hard earned victory against a team which included several players who appear regularly in the Tercera Division, two leagues above Mazarron.
The game kicked off five minutes late following a torrential downpour and thunderstorm which sent the travelling Mazarron supporters scurrying for whatever cover they could find.
Mazarron could have taken the lead after seven minutes when Alfonso’s free kick found Tolo who could only direct his header just wide of the far post. At the other end Fortuna looked dangerous on the break and first Lorca and then goalkeeper Conejo had to be alert to prevent goalscoring opportunities.
Neither side managed a serious attempt on goal for the rest of a disappointing first half which ended when Israel and Tolo combined to set up Alfonso whose shot was wide of the target.
Chema and new-signing Manu replaced Israel and Said at half time and Mazarron began to stamp their authority on the game. A left foot drive from Tolo was just wide after 56 minutes and then Tolo played in Chema whose shot was just blocked by the onrushing Fortuna keeper.
After 70 minutes a flick from Tolo, who worked tirelessly upfront, found Diego whose fierce volley sailed just over the bar. Then Tolo broke through only to be foiled by the keeper at the expense of a corner. Mazarron’s pressure paid off after 80 minutes when Liders’ left wing corner was headed back across goal by Dani and turned in at the far post by Enrique. 
Three minutes later Tolo raced through again but his mishit shot, despite beating the keeper, was cleared off the line for a corner. In the last few minutes Fortuna surged forward in search of an equaliser but the Mazarron defence and especially the excellent Conejo in goal, remained solid to ensure a victory which moved Mazarron up to fourth in the league table.
Mazarron’s next game is at home to A.D. Pliego on Sunday 12th October, kick off 17.30.

 Mazarron FC 2 Fuente Alamo 2  28/9/2014


For the second week running Mazarron FC unnecassarly threw away points in injury time and this time it was also the chance to go joint top.  The game started with the devastating news that one of the brightest prospects Mazarron have had in their team, Cristian, was leaving to ply his trade in Paris, but he promised to score in his final game and he lived up to his pledge and that he would be back in April. This game was played in warm sunshine in front of a good crowd who had high hopes of a game where 3 points were up for grabs. From the kick off Fuente Alamo tried a number of speculative long range shots which were easily dealt with and if this was the best that they could do, well come on down. It was in the 10th minute that Mazarron started to probe the away teams goal with Chema, who would have an excellent game, crossing to Cristian in the box who was denied by a last minute interception. But it wouldn't take long for Mazarron to take the lead, in fact it was just 7 minutes later that the same combination of Chema and Cristian that produce the goods. Chema received the ball on the left wing easily beating the aways team right back and flicked a cross over to Cristian who brought the ball down, controlled it, spinning on the spot and burying the ball into the net. Great goal. Mazarron FC 1 Fuente Alamao 0 Shortly afterwards Mazarron almost doubled their lead when Chema burst through the center only to be hauled down on the edge of the box by the last defender, the crowd was very disappointed that he only received a yellow card. Up steps Captain Alfonso who hammer the ball passed the defensive wall only to see it rebound off the foot of the post. The next action involved a move from the right again from a dead ball situation, again Alfonso was the deliverer in chief and the recipient was Cristian, who was determined to impress on his final outing with Mazarron, the ball cleared the defender aligned in front of the ball straight to Cristian who flashed the ball inches wide of the left hand post. Again following a Mazarron attack resulting in a corner it was Chemas turn to excel when he rose above three defender only to see his header miss to the right of the goal, just. At this stage it was all Mazarron and when Chema intercepted a Fuente Alamo defensive clearance, he bore down on goal and it took a last ditch tackle to deny him a shooting chance. In a rare attack Fuente Alamo's front line found themselves 3 on 2 with a good chance to equalise the score but as a striker was about to pull the trigger Chema took the ball away from him and cleared the danger. In the 39th minute Lady luck then took a hand in the shape of a very iffy penalty award. A coming together of two opposing players on the edge of Mazarrons penalty area which to the attending crowd seemed a 50/50 tackle was deemed as a foul and a penalty was awarded to Fuente Alamo. The penalty was taken and dispatched bringing the scores level. Mazarron FC 1 Fuente Alamo 1 HALF TIME

The second half started with Mazarron substituting the leagues top score, Tolo and Damien with Andreo and Diego the latter playing his first game following being injured in a pre season match. Diego is a striker who has been talked about a lot within the club as having a great amount of potential. The game continued in the same vein as the first half with Mazarron applying pressure and Fuente Alamo unable to make anything of any chances that they created, they sorely need a finisher as they let many a chance go begging. Fuente Alamo were made to pay for their ineptitude in front of goal in the 16th minute of the second half when following a corner and a bit of head tennis it was Diego who got the final and decisive touch to force the ball over the line. Diego had arrived. Mazarron FC 2 Fuente Alamo 1 Shortly afterwards Chema, who had been creating chance after chance was substituted being replaced by Juanillo and in all honesty the match stagnated somewhat for the next period of the game. The match burst into life again when Lider burst through the Fuente defence and was prevented from having a shot on goal when a blatant hand ball prevented the chance. From the free kick Juanillo dove full length in an attempt to head the ball home but just failed to make a connection. Fuente Alamo were now coming more and more into the game as Mazarron defended deeper and deeper and at one stage the ball wizzed around the home teams goal mouth like a pin ball with the ball eventually being cleared. Mazarron were now playing on the break and it was from one of these break aways that Mazarron nearly double their lead. Cristian bursting out his now defensive role he found Diego but the away goal minder just managed to clear the danger at the last second. Following a bad foul Lider left the field of play being replaced by Martin. As full time arrived a Fuente Alamo striker buried a free kick into the side netting of Mazarrons goal, a real let off. now where did he get those 5 minutes from? Shortly afterwards Cristian left the feild of play to a standing ovation being replaced by Javi. And it was in the 3rd minute of extra time disaster struck Mazarron and their excellent goal keeper, Conejo, in particular. A long punt up field by the Fuente defence was easily being covered by Juan Lorca, who hadn't put a foot wrong all day, only to see his goal keeper running out of his area to clear the same ball. Conejo got to the ball first and kicked it straight to a Fuente striker who calmly passed the ball sideways to his partner who side footed the ball into an empty net. Disaster. Mazarron FC 2 Fuente Alamo 2 The whistle for full time was blown almost as Mazarron restarted the game and we looked across to see a distraught Conejo sitting in his goal mouth devastated with what he had done.

FULL TIME Mazarron FC 2 Fuente Alamo 2 A point but it felt like a defeat. Man of the match Juan Lorca who didn't put a foot wrong all afternoon.




A goal in the third minute of injury time denied a hard-working Mazarron a point in this top of the table clash at Beniajan.


Both sides went in to the game with 100% records but it was Beniajan who dominated the early stages with Mazarron goalkeeper Conejo making two excellent saves in the first five minutes. Mazarron without the injured Israel and Enrique in midfield struggled to get to grips with the bouncy artificial surface in the first half.


Twice the speedy Beniajan right winger burst clear, on the first occasion mis-hitting his shot completely and then hitting a firm drive just wide of the far post. Mazarron began to come more into the game and after 30 minutes Cristian’s poor shot rebounded to Tolo who found the net but he was clearly in an offside position. Five minutes later Chema and Cristian combined well on the left and from Chema’s cross Cristian headed just over the bar.


The young Andreo replaced Martin at half time and certainly added some bite into the midfield area, winning numerous tackles and headers. After 52 minutes Cristian’s free kick from 25 yards was just over the bar but five minutes later Lorca made an excellent goal liner clearance following a Beniajan corner.


A left wing free kick from Liders caused panic in the Beniajan defence and evaded everyone before the referee blew for offside. At the other end Beniajan almost took the lead with a fierce drive from 30 yards which sailed just over the bar. Then Cristian combined with substitute Juanillo whose shot was saved by the Beniajan keeper.


The last 15 minutes were played in almost complete darkness. The floodlights at Beniajan are totally inadequate and the use of a dark ball made it virtually impossible for spectators to follow the play. Nevertheless Mazarron continued to play spiritedly with Conejo excellent in goal. However, Beniajan took the points to go top of the league in the 93rd minute when, following two right wing corners, they forced the ball home at the far post.


On the balance of play it could be argued that it was a fair result but Mazarron deserved something out of the game for their hard work and commitment which augurs well for the rest of the season.

A.D.SUCINA 1 MAZARRON FC 3  14/9/2014

 Mazarron came back from behind to defeat a resolute Sucina team and move into second place in the Primera Autonomica.

 The game got off to an explosive start when the Sucina goalkeeper charged out of his goal to deny Tolo a goalscoring opportunity by handling outside the area. He was shown the inevitable red card but Mazarron failed to take advantage of the numerical advantage in a disappointing first half.

 Too often, they overhit the final ball on a sloping and bouncy artificial surface and it was Sucina who took advantage of errors in the Mazarron defence enabling Antonio to give them the lead after 22 minutes. Neither side managed to create any clear-cut chances before the interval and Cristian’s free kick after 32 minutes did not trouble the second string Sucina keeper.

 The second half was a different story as Mazarron started to play the ball on the ground with some excellent passing movements. Chema replaced Lorca at half time and raced down the right wing before producing a dangerous cross which was turned away for a corner with Cristian waiting to pounce.

 After 60 minutes, Mazarron equalised after a spell of intense pressure. A short corner on the right was played to Enrique whose pin point cross was headed powerfully into the roof of the net by Cristian. A few minutes later, Cristian ran on to a through ball and raced clear of the Sucina defence only to be brought down by a late tackle. It was an obvious red card for the Sucina defender but the referee astonishingly showed a yellow card to Cristian for simulation.

 Mazarron took the lead after 75 minutes when Tolo found Chema racing clear down the right and he drove the ball into the corner of the net from a narrow angle. A mistake by Dani almost let in Sucina for an equaliser but fortunately the shot went just over the bar.

 The league’s leading scorer Tolo sealed the three points for Mazarron in the last few minutes when he beat the retreating Sucina defence before rounding the keeper and slotting the ball home.

Mazarron 4 Yeclano Deportivo B 0  - 7/9/14

A youthful Mazarron team started the new season with a fine win against Yeclano who were considered by some to be one of the better teams in the league.

 The first half hour was dominated by Mazarron and in particular Cristian Pineda who had two shots punched clear by the keeper and a good cross wasted by lack of support from the other forwards.

 However Mazarron took the lead in the 38th minute when Tolo found himself in an onside position onside for and ran on to round the onrushing Yeclano keeper before putting the ball into an empty net.

 Just before half time the Yeclano keeper again found himself stranded well outside the area and resorted to handling the ball, surprisingly only receiving a yellow card. However justice was done when Tolo blasted the free kick into the net from around 35 yards and Mazarron went to the interval leading 2 – 0.

 In the early stages of the second half it was the turn of Mazarron’s keeper Conejo to have a touch of nerves. On two occasions fumbled the ball but on each occasion a defender came to his assistance and cleared the danger.

 Mazarron continued to dominate the game and in the 82nd minute Tolo pounced on a poor back header to complete his hat trick by lobbing the stranded keeper.

 The final goal of the game came in the 85th minute with Chema running on to a through ball and scoring with ease.

 Hopefully this performance can be the sign of things to come and a pointer to a successful season for Mazarron.
