Costa Blanca News (North Edition) - - LOCAL SPORT -

La Vila played a good match last Sun­day de­spite be­ing beaten at the Pepe Rojo pitch in Val­ladolid against Sil­ver­storm El Sal­vador by 36-14 in a match with col­or­ful sketches and un­pre­dictable bursts.

The pow­er­ful Sil­ver­storm El Sal­vador team made La Vila play­ers suf­fer dur­ing the 80 min­utes, but it is true that the men led by Juan Car­los Pérez were faced with a dif­fi­cult op­po­nent play­ing a very solid game.

In the first half it was the Sil­ver­storm who opened the score board tak­ing ad­van­tage of an un­lucky La Vila pass, where Vi­cente Del Hoyo kicked the ball to­wards the touch­down line and Oliver Bryant made the touch­down.

The Vila play­ers were quick to re­act. Ramiro Al­varez kicked a long ball to­wards winger Miguel Lainz, who made a clean catch and scored the first five points for La Vila, Jara then trans­formed the pass and it was an equal 7 score for both teams.

Later the Vila de­fense worked hard to stop the Val­lodolid team's hefty strik­ers led by their New Zealand lad Wal­ter Fi­fita and Samoan cen­tre player, Nuu Ju­nior Nuu, with­out for­get­ting their pow­er­ful for­wards.

Dur­ing the sec­ond half the score re­mained un­changed for 23 min­utes, a sign of the of both teams im­pres­sive stamina, at this stage ei­ther could who have won the game, but Sil­ver­storm man­aged a fi­nal score in favour of 36-14.

With this the Val­ladolid team po­si­tions it­self as leader of the Heineken League ahead of the VRAC Que­sos En­tre­pinares and San­i­tas Al­coben­das by one point.
