Mazarrón FC continued to maintain a push for a play-off place with further good results from mid-November to mid-December including two excellent victories against teams in the top three. After a hard fought 1-1 draw in the home game against play-off rivals UCAM Murcia, Mazarrón embarked on a run of four successive victories.
First up was a difficult trip to SFC Minerva and goals from Diego and Choky Aril who was making his first full appearance gave them a 2-1 victory. Mazarrón then travelled to third-placed Real Murcia ‘B’ in a midweek game. After a disappointing first half in which Dani Morales missed a penalty and Murcia opened up a one goal lead, coach Junco made an inspired substitution and change of tactics at half time. Masonic was brought on to replace Diego and joined Dani Morales in a two-pronged strike partnership. The move paid off and Masonic was instrumental in two of the three goals which gave Mazarrón a 3-2 victory. The goals were scored by Ascensio, Moans and Nacho.
Four days later Mazarrón entertained second placed Lorca Deportiva who had lost only once in 15 games. It was a difficult game in which Mazarrón struggled to break down a stubborn Lorca team who played for 80 minutes with ten men after their goalkeeper was sent off for bringing down Musoni on the edge of the penalty area. Despite this Lorca took the lead from the penalty spot early in the second half. Musoni equalised for Mazarrón before Dani Morales scored the winner in the first minute of added time. Then Mazarrón beat Muleno CF 2-0 away from home to move into the play-off places in fourth position.
