Cantoria suffered a 1-0 defeat this Sunday in their visit to the Veracruz stadium in Villacarrillo, Jaén.
Surely the Aurinegro could have brought something more from Jaén, but as they say in football, goals are love. Rafa converted for the home side in the 70th minute and Agustín missed a penalty in the 82nd minute, one of seven that the Almanzora side have missed this season, undoubtedly one of the factors to be improved for next year. Penalties give points and those points secure positions and consolidate aspirations.
With Abdou sent off in the 71st minute, the Ricardo Mora-Juanma Sánchez tandem deserved a little more. Well positioned on the pitch, dominating the game for most of the game, they only lacked a goal.
The team dropped to seventh place, keeping their place in the Copa Andalucía, three points behind Berja, their immediate pursuers.
Next Sunday, match day 36 of Group 2 of the Andalusian Division of Honour, Cantoria will host leaders Estepona at the Campo Municipal Los Olivos.
