Huercal-Overa 1 Lorca Deportiva 1
The game of the week in the Tercera Division Group 13 was certainly the visit of Lorca Deportiva to Huercal-Overa in a top of the table clash. With La Union beating Yeclano at home 1-0 and Aguilas entertaining lowly Atletico Pulpileno that same hour a win would keep them in a solid position at the head of the table and 9 points ahead of 4th place.
The game started fantastically for the home side when Alex out paced the Lorca central defence to slide the ball home after only 4 minutes silencing the Lorca drum beating fans, the assist goes to Asensio playing against the side he left earlier this year.
More bad news followed for the Blue and Whites as influential Paco Lorca came off after only 18 minutes with what we believe is a muscle injury that could potentially have him out for a while (to be confirmed), Kuki the replacement.
The home side had control of the game in the most part with sporadic opportunities for Campanas, playing at his old stomping ground and looking to put on a show and Carrasco the leagues top hitter with 20. But it was Huercalense who were having the run of the green with Alex and Carmona showing real passion for the win.
The equaliser came in the 73rd minute from that man Carrasco, a neat whipped cross in from the right by Omar found Carrasco’s boot on the volley and then the back of Isma’s net.
The game drew out with both sides having chances from set pieces but nothing to put either keeper under any stress, with the game finishing level which both sides were good for.
Lorca next welcome Espinardo Atletico while Huercal-Overa travel up the coast to Mar Menor.
