Jávea claimed their first points of the season
in the most delicious of ways, crushing fierce rivals
CD Dénia on their own turf. Two goals from César
and a strike from Álvarito secured the victory
to lift the rojiblancos into seventh spot after two
games. Coach Juan Carlos Signes, ex-Dénia player
and coach, took advantage of recent turmoil suffered
by the hosts who narrowly missed out on promotion to
the Third Division last season but issues with player
wages unsettled the squad, causing many key players
to depart for other clubs, some of whom followed their
former coach to Jávea. But although they might
not be quite who they once were, victory over arch-rivals
CD Dénia is always a sweet one!
team from the sunny side of the mountain sought
to take control of the game right from the start but
had to fight hard against the hosts who hustled and
squeezed the midfield to try and prevent them from doing
so. But it was a defensive error which Jávea
capitalised on when Álvarito broke free to fire
a powerful shot past the keeper to make it 1-0 after
24 minutes. For the rest of the first half, the Jávea
midfield worked hard to mark Dénia's dangerman
Santafé out of the game, pressuring him every
time he received the ball which meant that the home
striker had few opportunities to cancel out the opener.
the second half, Jávea maintained control of
the game and, after just ten minutes in, it was another
defensive error that allowed César to double
the advantage with a strike that went into the net off
a post. Dénia worked hard with Santafé
starting to cause problems. Navarro hit the crossbar
and then Santafé himself picked up a loose ball
and smashed his measured shot against the post with
the keeper beaten. However it was Jávea who would
score again, three minutes from time, with César
controlling the ball well before sending a fierce shot
into the net about which the keeper could do nothing.
And then, just seconds before the final whistle, the
hosts claimed a consolation from the penalty spot to
make it 3-1 final score to CD Jávea.
