Jávea recorded their tenth draw of the season
at Alginet to extend their unbeaten start to the season
to sixteen games; just one match and the rojiblancos
will have completed the first half of the season without
a defeat, a terrific achievement. However, despite also
boasting the best defence in the league, conceding just
eight goals in 16 games, it is at the other end of the
pitch that is causing plenty of frustration with just
18 goals scored in favour; only two other teams have
scored less and both are languishing at the wrong end
of the table.
game opened in very windy conditions to which both sides
struggled to adapt and thus neither side dominated during
the opening 45 minutes. Alginet had the first chance
of the game through Tali but his effort was well-claimed
by goalkeeper Andrada, who was replacing Edu between
the sticks to make a rare start for Jávea. At
the other end Lucas Bou went close with a fierce shot
that flew just inches over the crossbar whilst Andrada
had to be on hand once again to stop a decent free-kick
from Alginet's Borja. And that was just about it for
the first half.
the break the stalemate continued until Jávea
finally broke the deadlock with a goal on 64 minutes
from Cristian de Luis. The strike lifted the game and
tempers frayed. On 68 minutes Alginet's Caseta was dismissed
after receiving two yellow cards in barely a minute.
But once again Jávea struggled to make the most
of the numerical advantage and allowed the home side
to equalise just a few minutes later through Borja.
The final few minutes saw chances for Jávea's
Roberto and subsitute Faye whilst the last word
went to Alginet's Veses whose strike was well-cleared
