FRIENDLY MATCH: AS PONTES 0 - DEPORTIVO 3

29 Nov 2006
Deportivo continued its series of friendly matches around Galicia. This time Caparr??s' team defeated As Pontes, a club from <i>Regional Preferente</i>. Filipe, Iago and Manuel Pablo scored the goals. The good news was that Duscher returned and played 45 minutes, although Taborda didn't manage to finish due to a new injury.

Caparr??s used this game to test four youngsters from Fabril. Adri??n L??pez and Jos?© Arenas appeared as starters (the latter made his debut in the first squad), while Rub?©n M?©ndez and Juan Dom?­nguez entered during the second half. The best news of the game was the return of Aldo Duscher. The Argentine has been out for the last four weeks with a thigh injury and he played alongside De Guzm??n in the pivote position.

Depor took control of the actions and the Blanquiazul soon had the advantage after Filipe Luis received a cross from Adri??n. Twenty minutes later, Iago doubled the score with an impressive long distance shot. After that, the game lost intensity, especially after As Pontes replaced the entire squad at half-time.

There was nothing exciting at the beginning of the second half, but during the last minutes of the match, Sebasti??n Taborda had to leave the pitch with a new injury.  The Uruguayan replaced the youngster Jos?© Arenas at half-time, and he couldn't finish the match because of a new muscular problem. Minutes later, Manuel Pablo sealed the deal for Deportivo.
