As if it were a pre-established script, Arenas Club thrashed Ardoi in Navarre, exercising control of the match from start to finish and tying fifth place with the right to play in the promotion play-offs. Those of Toño Vadillo have started revolutionized and very soon they have prowled the local area with danger. Before 10 minutes had passed, the game was on their face, when Madariaga -excellent in the match- got the first of the set by beating Itxaso, who shone with so much piecework.
A minute later, Rozas hit the post with a ball. The left winger has turned his band into a stiletto where danger was felt. Rozas was only missing the prize for the goal, which he has been denied. But his was the second chance to launch a shot alone against the goalkeeper who crashed into the post with Pueyo beaten. His subsequent shot to a pass from Rozas, in the 31st minute, was deflected with difficulty by the keeper.
Well after half an hour, in minute 35, Ardoi's first chance came, finishing with a very weak shot from Ugartemendia, which Landeta easily blocked. By then the visiting team liked each other and played at will. The entrances by both bands, the triangulations, the cooperation in the supports to lead the attacks and the courage to face one on one when there was no possible pass have put together the argument of a brilliant Arenas. The only thing missing was the icing on the cake, because even the Getxo coach has added his fourth victory - full since he took the bench.
But so much loitering has served to get fruits. They have been collected thanks to a play by Lizarraga. First, a self-pass has been served to penetrate from the right to the lime line, close to the goal. Later, he coldly served Izeta, who was entering the race, who had nothing to do but clinch. Thus he has achieved his 17th goal as the top scorer in the category along with Nacho, from Burgos Promesas, who has also scored a target on the day.
The 0-2 has been delayed until the 51st minute. And from then on, Toño Vadillo's men have dedicated themselves to exhibiting themselves in many of the cons. They have played with pleasure. In front of the Ardoi of Íñigo Ardanaz, the coach who said goodbye to the bench today, suffocated in each attempt. In the first half, Madariaga has done the unspeakable to get away from his rivals. Alone, isolated, without support, he has tried in every way without luck. In the second half, his deflected shot sealed the first local chance, in minute 58.
The rest has been a red and black recital. So much so that Itxaso has been the most outstanding player for Ardoi with three brilliant saves. The recital could have ended in a blushing win. Murua has sentenced with the 0-3 in a corner that has been an example of ambition, because after crashing his header into a local defender, he has taken the ball out of courage against two rivals to place it at will away from the goalkeeper's reach.
Rozas, Arzalluz on two occasions and Zorrilla, have also had very clear chances to increase the account, but Itxaso and the lack of aim have prevented it. The only one who seemed like a mere spectator on the pitch was Landeta. The visiting goalkeeper hasn't had a job, but he wanted to join the getxotarra carousel. So, in the 83rd minute, he brought out his quality by stopping a point-blank shot from Joel García, who was also very active, trying without luck the entire game. The meeting has been an example of the conviction of an Arenas Club that has gained in strength.
