Eddie's Final Whistle
minute and that is how it stayed until the half time break. The second half was more of the same but the game changed dramatically in the 58th minute when the Teruel goalkeeper, who had already been booked in the 35th minute of the game, brought down an opponent inside his penalty area and was shown a second yellow. The reserve keeper, Juan Manuel, magnificently saved the resulting penalty spot. Alcoyano, now playing with an extra man, did not have things their own way and were fortunate not to concede a second goal. However, on 65 minutes, a diving header from Alcoyano forward Braulio levelled things up. CF Peralada 0 – 1 Villarreal CF B Villarreal B stay in second spot but close the gap on the league leaders, Hercules; to just two points after this away win against CF Peralada, who after this defeat, stay in 19th position with just five points. A 63rd minute goal from Enric was enough to give the visitors all three points although it must be said that they were pit under a lot of pressure from the home side, who even mist a penalty in the first few minutes. Nevertheless, Villarreal waited and played a counter attacking game, which proved fruitful for tham as they took all three points. UB Conquense 1 – 1 Ontinyent CF Ontinyent could only manage a 1-1 draw away from home this week, a result that drops them into fourth position with 12 points. Both goals arrived in the second half with Ontinyent scoring first, after 55 minutes and the home side equalising in the 72nd minute of the game. Conquense, who have started the season very strongly but have wilted somewhat over the weeks, are now down into 14th position with eight points.
