CD DENIA 1-1 CD JAVEA ˇ A SHARE OF THE SPOILS IN MARINA ALTA DERBY
So near yet so far! The much-awaited local derby between CD Jávea and CD Dénia produced a 1-1 draw but the points should have travelled back over the bump to Jávea after a determined performance by the 'rojiblancos'. They were reduced to ten men on just 24 minutes when goalkeeper Dani Vaello was shown a straight red for an apparent elbow in the goal area but Jávea played themselves into the lead, Armando hitting home from distance after 38 minutes, and then held on fairly comfortable until four minutes from time when Panucci bundled home the equaliser. The home fans cheered with relief and so they should because Jávea was the far better team which now sits just one point off the top three.
