Two killer blows in the opening minute and the last minute of the match sees the Rojillos end their season in defeat but still maintain 11th position in the Tercera Division (Fourth Tier).

It was another disastrous start for Lanzarote. A shot from midfielder Joseph was saved by the Rojillos keeper Agoney but the rebound fell kindly for Héctor who made no mistake firing low and hard to give his side a 1-0 lead. The Rojillos were not happy as they believed Héctor was clearly offside but their discontentment was brushed aside by the dormant official.

Despite this setback Lanzarote were playing some good football and midfielder Rául came close in the 18th minute when his fierce drive was deflected away for a corner. Toñito also came close to levelling the score line but his effort flew inches wide.

The Tenerife side were also showing why they warranted a 7th placed finish and in the 28th min Héctor was put through with a one on one situation with the Lanzarote keeper. With time on his side he struck his effort well clear of the crossbar.

Just before the break the home side had a penalty appeal turned down though a little later so did Lanzarote.

The second half was equally as entertaining with opportunities for both sides that went begging.

British lad Louis Kennedy who seems to play his best football away from home came to the fray. In the 74th minute cut in from the left wing and struck the ball powerfully but his strike drifted narrowly away from the upright. Six minutes later and this time on the right flank the 20 year old let rip with a ferocious effort but the ball thundered off the crossbar and away to safety.

Six minutes from time and with Lanzarote increasing the pressure on the home side Toñito thought he had levelled the score but the Tenerife keeper produced a fine save to deny the Lanzarote winger.

Whilst the Rojillos were going Gung Ho trying to earn a point the home side caught Lanzarote on the break and in the 89th minute secured the win when sub Nauzet fired home to secure all three points in a 2-0 win.
