A hat trick from the 26 year old Argentinian striker Gonzalo Di Renzo sees Lanzarote seal their playoff position going into the Christmas break.

Di Renzo started the ball rolling when he stroked home from close range following a terrific header by Raúl in the 32nd minute.

The Gran Canarian side who had only lost once at home this season prior to today levelled in the 65th minute.

Only three minutes later and Di Renzo restored the lead at 1-2. Fabricio then belted a free kick into the top corner in the 74th minute and the Rojillos had daylight with a 1-3 lead.

To put the icing on the cake Di Renzo scored in the 87th minute to make it a final score of 1-4 and of course claim his first hat trick in a Rojillo shirt.

Lanzarote have moved up to fourth spot but that maybe only for a few hours but one thing is certain is that when they return at home on the Sunday 8th January they will be in a playoff position.

Many thanks to Wendy Chapman (photo) keeping me updated with the score as has Jacci Doherty on various other occasions.
