Defeat for the yellows on the afternoon of last Sunday, November 6, at the Municipal José Fernández Amo de Santa Marta. A tough 3-1 gave one of ‘Mone’s most direct rivals, Club Deportivo Santa Marta, the three points that were up for grabs on this seventh day of the league.
A quiet first half, without goals and very even between both teams, was the prelude to a second half that did not stop registering activity on the scoreboard and decided the match.
The first two goals of the afternoon came hand in hand, just five minutes apart and from the same player. The local Ismael Silva surprised in the 48th minute and, once again, punished the yellows’ bad start to the second half in the 53rd minute. The result, a 2-0 that left the Montesterio team out of the game.
However, the yellows knew how to react relatively quickly. In the 66th minute, the boots of striker Rubén Luque managed to make it 2-1, bringing light to the bench and to the fans who had traveled there. But that was not enough. The local Carlos Fernández snatched away all hope and sealed the match with a goal that made the score 3-1 in the 86th minute.
The defeat of this day makes ‘Mone’ descend to the last position in the classification of group 4 of the First Division of Extremadura. Of course, tied at 5 points with CP Usagre. Only one point leads CP Oliva against the yellows, which accumulates 6, and two points ahead of EMD Aceuchal and Higuera CF, both with 7 points. They are the direct rivals of CP Monesterio who must try to overcome in the coming days.
At the moment, he is already preparing for the match next Sunday, November 20, at the Municipal, against Higuera CF. An opportunity not to be missed to climb positions in the ranking. The competition rests this weekend.
