  • The home team were the better side but that wasn't enough for Malaga to win their game against Tenerife

Malaga Femenino played their second game of the season in the women's Second Division (known as Reto Iberdrola) on Saturday at home, facing visitors Tenerife B.

Statistics show that the home side technically dominated the game, but they were unable to get over the damage caused by conceding an early goal 13 minutes after the starting whistle.

Malaga spent the rest of the match chasing an equaliser which seemed as if it would never come despite them being the superior side.

After the break, coach José Herrera brought on Lorena, who was making her debut with the first team. Chances of scoring came and went and the players showed clear signs of tiring as they went through seven minutes of injury time.

Finally though, in the 97th minute of the game, Lorena made sure her debut was noted by scoring the goal her side needed, helped by a cross from Encarni.

"Scoring on my debut is a dream come true, but I think we deserved more," said 18-year-old Lorena after the game.

After last week's defeat this is Malaga's first point of the season but no one hid the fact that they had gone out to win.

"We're not too happy with this point, because we're very demanding; a draw at home isn't enough," said coach Herrera.
