San Pedro’s Match in Benagalbón Begins with a Draw

The UD San Pedro football team started their match in Benagalbón today, ending the second half of the season on a disappointing note with a draw. This result, coupled with Martos’ victory in Porcuna, leaves the red and black team without a direct promotion to the 3rd RFEF.

San Pedro’s Struggle for Ascension

San Pedro began the match on the back foot, managing to draw level with a goal from Adri Ruiz in the second half. However, Martos’ triumph in Porcuna denied San Pedro’s ascension. The team suffered a major setback in the match they played this afternoon against Benagalbón, which left them without a promotion to the 3rd RFEF.

San Pedro’s Dependence on Self-Performance

The red and black team was dependent on their own performance, but they could not progress beyond a draw, being overtaken on this final day by Martos. After a strong first half of the season, San Pedro faced the second half with doubts following a home defeat against Berja and the dismissal of their coach, Antonio Sánchez Frías.

San Pedro’s Away Game Struggles

Since then, San Pedro has struggled to win away games, making this Sunday’s match against Benagalbón even more challenging. Escobar’s team needed to win away to avoid relying on other results. The match could not have started worse for the red and black team, who were already losing four minutes in.

San Pedro’s Hopes for Ascension

The ascension was becoming complicated, but there was still time to turn things around, while also keeping an eye on other matches. Almost at the same minute that San Pedro conceded, Porcuna took the lead against Martos. Fifteen minutes in, Porcuna scored again to lead 2-0, giving San Pedro some breathing room.

Martos’ Comeback Before Half-Time

However, before half-time, Martos managed to draw level, adding more fuel to the ascension fire. At the start of the second half, Atlético Porcuna took the lead again, but Martos equalized. A few minutes later, San Pedro managed to draw level when Adri Ruiz converted a penalty.

San Pedro’s Struggle to Score

With a draw on both fields, San Pedro was a 3rd RFEF team. However, the red and blacks struggled to score against their opponents, while in Porcuna, it was only a matter of time before Martos scored the winning goal, even after missing two penalties.

Martos’ Last-Minute Victory

In the end, Martos managed to win in the final minutes of the match, securing their direct promotion and leaving San Pedro out after a second half of the season to forget.
