16/11/2014 Sporting Camposol 0 Mazarron FC 1
Mazarron came out on top in the first ever derby between the two local teams watched by a good crowd with an excellent atmosphere.
The game started quite slowly but Mazarron had the first chance in
the 5th minute when Mateo found Alfonso who shot wide. Mazarron’s keeper
Carrasco was then injured following a corner from Sporting Camposol. He played
on for a further 10 minutes but finally had to be replaced in goal by Pablo a
In the 20th minute Sporting Camposol had a free kick which was deflected for a corner followed by a good save by Pablo who came to the rescue again a few minutes later when he raced out of goal to make a further good clearance. Mazarron suffered another blow when Antonio Jose was injured and replaced by crowd favourite Cecilio to great applause.
Mazarron began to take control and had three or four good chances,
most falling to leading scorer Tolo although Camposol did have one chance of
their own. However, two minutes before half time Cecilio opened his account for
the season when he headed Mazarron into the lead.
In the second half Tolo was soon into action again and in the 60th minute saw a long range shot go narrowly over the bar. Five minutes later Sporting Camposol came near to an equalising goal but the game then became fairly open with neither side gaining the upper hand.
In the 80th minute Mazarron’s Manu was shown a straight red card and the game started to get a little out of hand with a number of bookings and the teams were evened up in the 83rd minute when former Mazarron striker Boudia was sent off for Sporting Camposol.The final whistle came with Mazarron taking the three points and moving back into a play off position.
9/11/2014 MAZARRON FC 1 LA HOYA LORCA CF 1
Mazarron earned a creditable draw against high flying La
Hoya Lorca in an entertaining game at the Estadio Municipal. Mazarron were
almost at full strength and welcomed back Cecilio on the substitutes’ bench for
the first time since his return from work commitments in France.
Mazarron started the game brightly with a number of
attacks from free-flowing passing movements, a pleasant change from recent
weeks. Tolo and Cristian were combining well up front and a spectacular overhead
kick by Tolo went just wide. La Hoya were restricted to sporadic attacks and
after 35 minutes another good passing move from Mazarron ended with a great
cross from Manu finding Tolo whose volley from a narrow angle went just wide.
However, in Mazarron’s next attack, Tolo was fouled in
the penalty area and got up to despatch the resultant spot kick into the net to
give Mazarron a 1-0 half time lead.
Mazarron continued to dominate the early stages of the
second half, another excellent move ending with Tolo’s dangerous cross evading
all the onrushing attackers. Then in the 54th minute Liders free kick
was headed just over the bar by Enrique.
Despite Mazarron’s pressure, La Hoya equalised two
minutes later when a right wing cross was headed home by Alcaraz leaving
Carrasco in the Mazarron goal with no chance. Mazarron introduced Chema and
Cecilio in an attempt to get the winning goal and Cecilio immediately had an
impact, forcing a corner from which Tolo shot over the bar.
La Hoya were reduced to ten men in the 69th minute when one of their players received a second yellow card after an altercation with a linesman. Mazarron continued to try to press home their one man advantage with Tolo working tirelessly up front but were unable to create any clear cut chances in the remaining minutes and the game ended in a creditable 1-1 draw.
Team: Carrasco, Lorca, Antonio Jose, Alfonso, Dani,
Liders, Enrique, Manu, Diego (Cecilio), Cristian (Chema), Tolo
Man of the Match: Tolo
2/11/2014 CD ESPARRAGAL 1 MAZARRON FC 0
Mazarron lost for the
second week running losing 1-0 at CD Esparragal who leapfrogged above Mazarron
in the league, leaving the visitors in eighth position but still only one point
off a play-off place.
Without top scorer Tolo, Mazarron welcomed back crowd favourite Cristian after his brief spell in France and gained an early corner which came to nothing. Esparragal had most of the play in the first twenty minutes with Carrasco in the Mazarron goal dealing competently with anything thrown out him.
Team: Carrasco, Alfonso, Antonio Jose, Dani, Mateo, Israel (Chema), Liders, Cristian, Diego, Andreu (Stalin), Juanillo (Esteban)
Man of the Match : Mateo
Mazarron are at home to La Hoya Lorca CF next weekend.
26/10/2014 MAZARRON FC 0 SFC MINERVA 2
Minerva gave a very early warning of why they are second in the league because within two minutes they had two attempts on the Mazarron goal, a shot and a header going just over the bar. Mazarron did manage to get a corner in the fourth minute with the resultant shot just over the Minerva bar, but this turned out to be a fairly rare incident.
In the 12th and 13th minutes Minerva had three corners in quick succession and always seemed to be able to place the ball into areas of danger for Mazarron. In the 20th minute Conejo pulled off an excellent save from an incisive Minerva attack, and this clearly helped him on his way to the Man of the Match award, as he had to come to Mazarron’s assistance on a number of occasions later on.
Mazarron’s first meaningful attack came in the 35th minute from a free kick which came in low and Manu nearly found the net. However, this was followed by some sustained Minerva attacks and in the 38th minute the Mazarron defence was breached by a header from a Minerva attacker which Conejo was unable to reach and Mazarron went in to half time a goal down.
From the kick-off at the start of the second half, Mazarron mounted an attack and Israel was quite clearly fouled either just outside or on the Minerva penalty area boundary; it wasn’t given – this was one where the referee got it wrong!
There followed a number of Minerva attacks resulting in a number of corners but thankfully none that threatened to add to their one goal lead. However, Minerva increased their lead after an hour following the award of a controversial free kick for a back pass by a Mazarron defender. Although the initial free kick was cleared the ball fell invitingly for a Minerva forward to hammer into the net.
Tolo and Alfonso came close to reducing the arrears for Mazarron but, in the end, Minerva ran out deserved winners.
Team: Conejo, Mateo (Martin), Dani, Antonio Jose, Enrique (Israel), Alfonso, Damian, Manu, Liders (Juanillo), Diego (Javi), Tolo
Man of the Match: Conejo
D JUVENIA 1 MAZARRON FC 2 19/10/2014
Mazarron defied all the odds with two goals in the last five minutes to win a game in which they had been reduced to nine men following the sendings off of Chema and Lorca.
The first half was a fairly drab affair with neither side able to impose any authority on the game although Tolo once burst through only to push the ball a little too far forward allowing the Juvenia keeper to run out and gather it safely. Then, after 38 minutes a break down the right wing involving three Mazarron players, found Tolo in a good position but with just too much of an angle to get a good shot away, and the ball ended up in the side netting – when a few of the visiting supporters thought it had gone in.
Apart from a couple of scares, both involving Mazarron keeper Conejo, Juvenia were unable to muster any real efforts in a disappointing first half which ended goalless.
The second half did not start any better with both teams again seeming woefully short of attacking ideas although Diego contrived to balloon the ball over the bar after 52 minutes when a Mazarron free kick was only half cleared by the Juvenia defence. Mazarron were now coming more and more into the game and a shot from Tolo after 60 minutes seemed to hit the arm of a Juvenia defender, only for the referee to award a corner rather than a penalty kick.
However, five minutes later Juvenia took the lead after been awarded a free kick 25 metres from goal. Javier’s free kick nestled in the back of the net before Mazarron keeper Conejo had chance to move. Chema replaced Liders for Mazarron and within two minutes had received a yellow card for an over enthusiatic challenge. To make matters worse he received a second yellow card a few minutes later after remonstrating with a linesman leaving Mazarron reduced to ten men.
Within five minutes Lorca had joined Chema for an early bath after receiving his second yellow card and Mazarron’s position now seemed hopeless. However, their fighting spirit was never more evident and they spend the last 10 minutes of the game bombarding the Juvenia goal and were rewarded by two goals from Diego in the 85th and 89th minutes to earn a famous victory and keep Mazarron in fifth place in the league.

MAZARRON FC 2 A.D. PLIEGO 2 12/10/2014
In a game they were expected to win comfortably, Mazarron had to overcome a two-goal half time deficit to fight back in the second half and eventually equalise with two Tolo penalties.
The first half saw Mazarron relying on the through ball to Tolo while Pliego attacked in numbers with sometimes three or four forwards in support, Tolo had Mazarron’s best early chance with a left foot shot wide of the post but, at the other end, Conejo had to be at his best on two occasions to keep out the Pliego attack.
Pliego took the lead after 30 minutes when a corner was cleared by the Mazarron defence but only as far as the Pliego No 21 whose shot looped over Conejo and into the Mazarron net. Worse was to follow two minutes later when a Pliego left wing cross escaped all the defenders and was turned it at the far post to make it 2-0.
Mazarron’s hopes seemed to have disappeared totally when captain Alfonso was sent off in the 44th minute having received two yellow cards in as many minutes.
However, two penalties were awarded to Mazarron in the first few minutes of the second half and both were successfully despatched by leading scorer Tolo, taking his tally to six for the season so far. There should have been a third penalty for Mazarron when a Pliego defender clearly handled in the penalty area but perhaps the referee had had enough controversy for the day!!!
Despite being down to ten man it was Mazarron who continued to push forward and shots from Tolo, Diego and Enrique went wide of the Pliego goal. At the other end Pliego’s few attacks were comfortably dealt with by the Mazarron defence.

Man of the Match: Tolo
EDECO FORTUNA 0 MAZARRON FC 1 (4.10.2014)Enrique’s headed goal in the 80th minute gave Mazarron a hard earned victory against a team which included several players who appear regularly in the Tercera Division, two leagues above Mazarron.
Mazarron FC 2 Fuente Alamo 2 28/9/2014
MAZARRON FC THROW IT AWAY FOR THE SECOND WEEK RUNNING
For the second week running Mazarron FC unnecassarly threw away points in injury time and this time it was also the chance to go joint top. The game started with the devastating news that one of the brightest prospects Mazarron have had in their team, Cristian, was leaving to ply his trade in Paris, but he promised to score in his final game and he lived up to his pledge and that he would be back in April. This game was played in warm sunshine in front of a good crowd who had high hopes of a game where 3 points were up for grabs. From the kick off Fuente Alamo tried a number of speculative long range shots which were easily dealt with and if this was the best that they could do, well come on down. It was in the 10th minute that Mazarron started to probe the away teams goal with Chema, who would have an excellent game, crossing to Cristian in the box who was denied by a last minute interception. But it wouldn't take long for Mazarron to take the lead, in fact it was just 7 minutes later that the same combination of Chema and Cristian that produce the goods. Chema received the ball on the left wing easily beating the aways team right back and flicked a cross over to Cristian who brought the ball down, controlled it, spinning on the spot and burying the ball into the net. Great goal. Mazarron FC 1 Fuente Alamao 0 Shortly afterwards Mazarron almost doubled their lead when Chema burst through the center only to be hauled down on the edge of the box by the last defender, the crowd was very disappointed that he only received a yellow card. Up steps Captain Alfonso who hammer the ball passed the defensive wall only to see it rebound off the foot of the post. The next action involved a move from the right again from a dead ball situation, again Alfonso was the deliverer in chief and the recipient was Cristian, who was determined to impress on his final outing with Mazarron, the ball cleared the defender aligned in front of the ball straight to Cristian who flashed the ball inches wide of the left hand post. Again following a Mazarron attack resulting in a corner it was Chemas turn to excel when he rose above three defender only to see his header miss to the right of the goal, just. At this stage it was all Mazarron and when Chema intercepted a Fuente Alamo defensive clearance, he bore down on goal and it took a last ditch tackle to deny him a shooting chance. In a rare attack Fuente Alamo's front line found themselves 3 on 2 with a good chance to equalise the score but as a striker was about to pull the trigger Chema took the ball away from him and cleared the danger. In the 39th minute Lady luck then took a hand in the shape of a very iffy penalty award. A coming together of two opposing players on the edge of Mazarrons penalty area which to the attending crowd seemed a 50/50 tackle was deemed as a foul and a penalty was awarded to Fuente Alamo. The penalty was taken and dispatched bringing the scores level. Mazarron FC 1 Fuente Alamo 1 HALF TIME
The second half started with Mazarron substituting the leagues top score, Tolo and Damien with Andreo and Diego the latter playing his first game following being injured in a pre season match. Diego is a striker who has been talked about a lot within the club as having a great amount of potential. The game continued in the same vein as the first half with Mazarron applying pressure and Fuente Alamo unable to make anything of any chances that they created, they sorely need a finisher as they let many a chance go begging. Fuente Alamo were made to pay for their ineptitude in front of goal in the 16th minute of the second half when following a corner and a bit of head tennis it was Diego who got the final and decisive touch to force the ball over the line. Diego had arrived. Mazarron FC 2 Fuente Alamo 1 Shortly afterwards Chema, who had been creating chance after chance was substituted being replaced by Juanillo and in all honesty the match stagnated somewhat for the next period of the game. The match burst into life again when Lider burst through the Fuente defence and was prevented from having a shot on goal when a blatant hand ball prevented the chance. From the free kick Juanillo dove full length in an attempt to head the ball home but just failed to make a connection. Fuente Alamo were now coming more and more into the game as Mazarron defended deeper and deeper and at one stage the ball wizzed around the home teams goal mouth like a pin ball with the ball eventually being cleared. Mazarron were now playing on the break and it was from one of these break aways that Mazarron nearly double their lead. Cristian bursting out his now defensive role he found Diego but the away goal minder just managed to clear the danger at the last second. Following a bad foul Lider left the field of play being replaced by Martin. As full time arrived a Fuente Alamo striker buried a free kick into the side netting of Mazarrons goal, a real let off. now where did he get those 5 minutes from? Shortly afterwards Cristian left the feild of play to a standing ovation being replaced by Javi. And it was in the 3rd minute of extra time disaster struck Mazarron and their excellent goal keeper, Conejo, in particular. A long punt up field by the Fuente defence was easily being covered by Juan Lorca, who hadn't put a foot wrong all day, only to see his goal keeper running out of his area to clear the same ball. Conejo got to the ball first and kicked it straight to a Fuente striker who calmly passed the ball sideways to his partner who side footed the ball into an empty net. Disaster. Mazarron FC 2 Fuente Alamo 2 The whistle for full time was blown almost as Mazarron restarted the game and we looked across to see a distraught Conejo sitting in his goal mouth devastated with what he had done.
FULL TIME Mazarron FC 2 Fuente Alamo 2 A point but it felt like a defeat. Man of the match Juan Lorca who didn't put a foot wrong all afternoon.
BENIAJAN CF 1 MAZARRON FC 0 21/9/2014
A goal in the third minute of injury time denied a hard-working Mazarron a point in this top of the table clash at Beniajan.
Both sides went in to the game with 100% records but it was Beniajan who dominated the early stages with Mazarron goalkeeper Conejo making two excellent saves in the first five minutes. Mazarron without the injured Israel and Enrique in midfield struggled to get to grips with the bouncy artificial surface in the first half.
Twice the speedy Beniajan right winger burst clear, on the first occasion mis-hitting his shot completely and then hitting a firm drive just wide of the far post. Mazarron began to come more into the game and after 30 minutes Cristian’s poor shot rebounded to Tolo who found the net but he was clearly in an offside position. Five minutes later Chema and Cristian combined well on the left and from Chema’s cross Cristian headed just over the bar.
The young Andreo replaced Martin at half time and certainly added some bite into the midfield area, winning numerous tackles and headers. After 52 minutes Cristian’s free kick from 25 yards was just over the bar but five minutes later Lorca made an excellent goal liner clearance following a Beniajan corner.
A left wing free kick from Liders caused panic in the Beniajan defence and evaded everyone before the referee blew for offside. At the other end Beniajan almost took the lead with a fierce drive from 30 yards which sailed just over the bar. Then Cristian combined with substitute Juanillo whose shot was saved by the Beniajan keeper.
The last 15 minutes were played in almost complete darkness. The floodlights at Beniajan are totally inadequate and the use of a dark ball made it virtually impossible for spectators to follow the play. Nevertheless Mazarron continued to play spiritedly with Conejo excellent in goal. However, Beniajan took the points to go top of the league in the 93rd minute when, following two right wing corners, they forced the ball home at the far post.
On the balance of play it could be argued that it was a fair result but Mazarron deserved something out of the game for their hard work and commitment which augurs well for the rest of the season.
Team: Conejo, Lorca (Javi), Antonio Jose, Dani, Said, Alfonso (Juanillo), Martin (Andreo), Liders, Chema (Damian), Cristian, Tolo
