Marbella FC Celebrates Olguín’s Last-Minute Goal

In the final second of the first half’s added time, Olguín scored a goal for Marbella FC, leading the team to victory after a stumble in Lebrija. They defeated a well-competing Racing Cartagena Mar Menor, who did not go down without a fight. The victory keeps Marbella FC in third place for another round, marking their 27th time in the promotion phase.

Marbella FC’s Second Consecutive Win

This is Marbella FC’s second consecutive 1-0 win, following their victory two weeks ago against Balona. This demonstrates that winning is not easy, especially by a wide margin. Racing Cartagena Mar Menor arrived at Dama de Noche with only one defeat in the last eight rounds, although many draws prevented them from advancing further in the table.

Marbella FC’s Strategy

Marbella FC fielded Olguín in the midfield alongside Rafa de Vicente and Aitor Puñal on the right. The team had to work hard against an opponent that put strong pressure on the home team’s game start and competed well, creating opportunities that were thwarted by Lejárraga.

Key Moments of the Match

Rafa de Vicente made a shot two minutes into the game, but it was Olguín who had the first clear chance with a shot very close to the post, which was deflected by the visiting goalkeeper. Racing Cartagena had a goal disallowed in the 10th minute due to a previous foul by Montejo. The visitors were looking for their chances.

Marbella FC Takes the Lead

In the 33rd minute, Aitor Puñal had a clear chance with a header, completely alone, but it was very off target. He complained that he had been dazzled by the sun. It could have been 1-0. The referee added four minutes and in the last second, Marcos Olguín, finishing a play between Ohemeng and Hugo, opened the scoring with a good shot.

Second Half of the Match

In the second half, Racing Cartagena stepped up and had their chances, which almost always ended in the hands of Lejárraga. Marbella was not accurate in counterattacks, which kept the uncertainty in the score until the end. The local goalkeeper stopped attempts by Pepe Bernal, Carrascal, and Juanmi in the first quarter of the second half.

Marbella FC’s Final Victory

The match was open and Marbella FC couldn’t find the play that would give them the second goal. They had to work until the end, with only one change introduced by Fran Beltrán until practically the added time. The referee extended the match by six minutes, during which Montejo had a chance to equalize with a header. However, Marbella FC secured three more points at home, remaining in third place, as they prepare for their next match at La Unión’s field, a similar context to Lebrija.
