The Players celebrate their victory at CD Minera

Mazarrón FC’s start to the season improved greatly after losing the first two games. The 4-2 home win against EDMF Churra was followed by wins at home to FC Cartagena ‘B’ and away to CD Minera. The game immediately following the Churra game was postponed due to the effects of the Gota Fria which caused such devastation in the Murcia Region.

Team v Cartagena FC UCAM

FC Cartagena ‘B’ were unbeaten when they came to Mazarrón, but the home team showed great resolve to manufacture a narrow 1-0 victory with a goal by Dani Barrelis from the penalty spot 15 minutes from time. The game at Minera the following week proved to be one of the most exciting seen in recent years. Mazarrón raced into a 4-1 lead at half time with goals from Asensio, Dani Barrelis, Dani Morales and an own goal. Mazarrón supporters were looking forward to a relaxing second half for a change, but Minera scored twice in the first five minutes of the second half and Mazarrón had to defend well until Dani Barrelis made the points safe with his second goal two minutes from the end. There was still time for Minera to pull another goal back to leave the supporters breathless after a nine goal thriller.

Mazarrón, at this stage, had moved up to 6th in the league and with two games to come against teams in the bottom three, there were high hopes that they could break into the play-off places. However, in typical fashion, Mazarrón failed to stamp their superiority on either game, drawing 0-0 at home to bottom of the league CAP Ciudad de Murcia and 1-1 away to Cartagena FC UCAM. Despite these minor setbacks Mazarrón were lying 7th in mid-October.
