Finally, the word of the banner that presides over the stands every soccer Sunday at the Municipal was fulfilled. Finally the yellows were able to remember the taste of a victory at home. And, finally, ‘Mone’ can breathe a little easier.
The 1-0 achieved by the locals against Higuera CF on the morning of yesterday, Sunday, November 20, served for all that. And for more.
A Municipal Football Stadium full of yellow fans witnessed a victory that the fans had been longing for for several weeks, but that seemed to get out of hand. And on the eighth – league day – it was the charm.
A goal from captain Caliche in the 43rd minute gave pace to a quiet first half, with hardly any shots on goal and a very relaxed game in which the yellows seemed superior. The same thread led the second half, which was a reflection, although goalless, of the first. Of course, with some chances on the part of both teams, which in no case materialized. And with the controversial expulsion of the visiting coach.
The good football of the field players and the masterful save in the last minutes of the match by the yellow goalkeeper, Jesús Neguillo, combined so that the match ended with the premature 1-0 on the scoreboard.
The three points earned this Sunday morning taste like glory for the yellows. From being bottom of group IV of the First Division of Extremadura, Ferro’s team now becomes ninth in the ranking, with 8 points, ahead of CP Oliva -which has accumulated 7-, Higuera CF -which has another 7- and CD Usagre -with 5-. This is how they leave the dangerous position and manage to get into the temperate zone.
