Goalkeeper Dani Vaello scored a late equaliser to give Jávea a share of the spoils in a vibrant match against Massanassa CF in which both sides needed to secure points.

Manu's 83rd minute goal for Massanassa seemed to have secured all three points for the relegation-haunted side before Vaello charged up field to thump home the equaliser with seconds remaining on the clock.

CD JAVEA 2-1 ALGEMESÍ · LATE GOALS SECURE WIN
Two goals in four minutes at the end of the game secured all three points for CD Jávea to keep them in touch with the top three. Agemesí had gone ahead after just four minutes through Migui thanks to some woeful defending from the home side. The game turned into an ugly scrap with the home side reduced to nine men and the 'rojiblancos' seeing captain Javi sent off for a second bookable offence. But then substitute Pablo scored one of the goals of the season on 84 minutes, a delightful shot from the edge of the crowded area to equalise, before Puncho secured the win from the spot four minutes later, prompting great protest from the visiting side who were indeed dominant for much of the game.

A goal from Santafé three minutes from time forced a share of the spoils at league leaders UD Canals. Neither team dominated on a water-logged pitch at a busy Quatre Camins ground and the match reached the halfway stage goalless although both sides had chances to take the lead during the opening period. The second half brought a little more action with the hosts taking the lead on 69 minutes through a free-kick from José Manuel. Jávea responded almost immediately with Alex Bertó hitting the crossbar twice before another free-kick was converted, this time by Jávea's Santafé just before full-time to force a share of the spoils.
