Estación 4 - Peña Compadres 2

The team arrived in Cartama Estación in good spirits and ready for a tough match against the league leaders, who haven't lost a single match all season.  A fine first half effort resulted in 1-1 with a great goal by Javi from the centre kick-off just before the whistle.  The second half was exciting with plenty of chances for both teams, but the match was won by the better team on the day.
With some unexpected results from other league matches, these 3 points lost were not quite as important as they could have been. 

Half time : 1-1
Final result : 4-2
Goal scorers : Javi, Jorge

Congratulations to the "Compadres Quartet" chosen by Juan García de la Casa to form part of the Málaga team of first year Alevins, to play in a friendly against a selected team from Axarquía, on Saturday 3rd April.  A lovely day was enjoyed by all those who travelled to Almayate to watch this well contested game.... everyone played well, both as individuals and as part of the team.  Thanks to the organizers who prepared a huge paella to satisfy the appetite of both players and their families.

Well done!

Peña Compadres 5 - Marbella Paraiso 0

A great performance by the Los Compadres team against the visitors from Marbella Paraiso, who put on a good battle, but only had one real shot on goal thanks to some great defending by Yousef, Moreno & Miguel.  This came from a free kick in the second half, which was well executed, but the goal was denied by a fantastic save by Benito.
German opened the scoresheet after just a few minutes, followed by an incredible free kick conversion by Yousef.  John did a great job in the midfield, despite being closely marked throughout and Jorge made some good attacks up front.  Sergio was also marked tightly, but put on a great performance and lined up a couple of great passes in front of the goal, converted by Moreno and Juampe.  Manzano also scored a brilliant goal from a fast ball down the right wing.  The whole team gave it their all from start to finish and definitely deserved to win these important 3 points .....well done! 

Half time : 3-0
Full time : 5-0
Goal scorers : German, Yousef, Moreno, Manzano, Juampe

Full time : 0-3
Goal scorers : Sergio Esteban (2), Antonio
