A lovely tournament in Estepona on 28th February, Día de Andalucía, a very sunny day with lots and lots of football…. the team left Marbella at 10:00h and didn’t get back until more than 12 hours later, when they got together for a pizza in Marbella to celebrate a great day of football and getting to the final.
The 8 competing Alevín teams were divided into two groups:
Group 1: AD Taraguilla, Guadiaro, Villa de los Barrios, Peña los Compadres
Group 2: Atl. Algecireño, Manilva CF, ADC Esteponense y Estepona CF
Guadiaro 1 – 6 Los Compadres (Sergio Esteban (3) David, Alex, Cristián)
Los Barrios 1 – 3 Peña los Compadres (Alex, Cristián, Sergio Esteban)
La Taraguilla 0 – 2 Peña los Compadres
Manilva 3 – 5 Peña los Compadres (Sergio Esteban (4), David)
La Taraguilla 1 – 0 Peña los Compadres
Los Compadres: León, Sergio Muñoz, Adri, John, Javi, Juanjo, Sergio Esteban, Alex, Cristián, David, José y Stefan.
All the team took part in the 5 games played, including Cristian, José and Stefan who joined from the Alevín A/B teams. Everyone contributed to the journey to the final. Strong defense by Javi, and John, and a whole host of goals by Sergio Esteban (8 during the day), but the most noteable performance was put in by León, who protected his goal like never before, especially in the two matches played against La Taraguilla. Despite the tiredness that the lads were no doubt feeling, the final between Peña los Compadres and La Taraguilla was a fantastic spectacle. The Marbellis let a couple of good opportunities get away, and León made a couple of great saves, so the final result was a good reflection of this tightly contested match. Well done to La Taraguilla… see you next time!
