First away win

A second Monday in a row with my team at the top of the table.What more can any fan ask for. Game by game the team plan to work hard and achieve all our hopes. In a ground that CD Tenerife haven't lost a game, for 8 years, the players went out with the intention to fight hard and win.

And so it was, Richi Kitoko with his first game this season for the blue and whites scored after 8 minutes from an excelent pass by Ferran Tacon. Ferran had to wait until the second half to score himself. Add to the mix a goal from Perona with a shot at the far post and CD tenerife were leaders. this is too early in the season to matter but just for a moment they were there. Only in the closing minutes of the gane when the Canarians were tired did Sporting B look better. They fought back with a goal from Guerrero to bring the final score to 1-3.
