Quino Brace Earns Thader Bragging Rights in Local Derby


Thader secured a double over their closest rivals in this pulsating local derby against Almoradi. In front of a decent sized crowd at Moi Gomez stadium, Thader extended their unbeaten run to 7 matches, thereby maintaining their hold on 5th position in Preferente division group 5.

It was the visitors who created the better chances in the opening stages of the first half, although both sides were guilty of some slack passing throughout a goalless 45 mins. Quino found himself in space inside the box on 9 mins, but being off balance, his shot flew wide of the mark.

Almoradi celebrations were cut short on 11 mins, for the headed effort by Rulo was correctly disallowed for offside. Apart from a couple of bookings (Dani Lucas plus an opponent), there really was nothing to shout about for the first half hour. Then on 32 mins, from a quickly taken free kick, Saul forced Chema to pull off a worldly save in order to keep Thader´s goal intact.

Quino, last season’s leading scorer, is now on 7 goals

An audacious overhead kick by Dani Lucas just missed the target on 36 mins, then on 43 mins, Chema made a superb diving save to deny Almoradi´s Confi from scoring.

The previous weekend saw me at Fratton Park, where a game that was goalless at half time, finished 4-0 to Pompey. It had all the hall marks of this match, as my prediction for a repeat score line proved to be not a million miles away. It took 8 mins into the new half for Quino to break the deadlock.

Thader´s deadly goal poacher was on hand to head home a rebound from close range. A glorious Javi assist on the hour mark found Quino in acres of space, resulting in him planting a low shot into the far corner of the goal. This goal put last season´s top goal scorer on 7 for the season, once again leading the pack. Pascual had to be alert to get in a last ditch tackle, in order to deny Almoradi scoring a certain goal.

Only the keepers outstretched legs prevented Quino notching a hat trick, before he was taken off to be replaced by Jony. It didn´t take long for Jony to get into the action, for twice in a matter of minutes he should have scored.

Having shot straight at the keeper, his next opportunity arrived via a low cross from fellow substitute Berni, from which he failed to get a touch in front of an open goal. You just knew that these missed chances would be punished, and they were!

Route one from defence found Almoradi substitute Tono unmarked, he then made no mistake by beating Chema at his near post. It was end to end stuff, for no sooner had the dust settled, than Jony popped up to finish off a well worked move to restore the hosts 2 goal advantage.

Even then, Chema saved his team mates blushes, by pulling off yet another top drawer save on 88 mins. In extra time, both Dani Lucas and Javi came close to emulating the 4-goal feast that I´d seen a week earlier on the Hampshire coast.

Next weekend, Thader must travel to Elche where they will play Illicitana Raval, as they attempt to record yet another double. It is highly recommended that CD Thader facebook page is visited, in order to establish details of date and time of this preferente league match.
