Zeben strike fires Blues

Estrella 0 CD Marino 1 WINNING away is the key to Marino climbing back into the top half of their Tercera Division, and challenging for the promotion play-offs. That’s why the team were delighted to return from Gran Canaria with a tough victory. Yet the balance was tilted in their favour when Juanyi was sent […]

Alex shows his pedigree

CD Tenerife 3  Real Oviedo 1   WHEN Alex Mula asked his girlfriend to postpone their wedding, in the slim hope of a promotion, play-off extension to his season, he was probably in the dog-house for a few days. Two quality goals in the exciting win over Real Oviedo backed his confidence… and smoothed the […]

A fourmidable success

Women’s football Granadilla Tenerife 4  Athletic Bilbao 1 SIMPLY beating Athletic Bilbao would have been pleasing, but Egatesa Granadilla Tenerife surpassed that ambition with a scoreline that reflected their domination. It was a game packed with goals of the highest calibre, and the outcome lifted Granadilla to third in Spain’s Premier League – their highest-ever […]

Frampton’s peak fitness

Boxing RUNNING up to Mount Teide National Park would exhaust most people, but it was just one round in a 10-day training trip to Tenerife for Belfast boxer Carl Frampton. The 31-year-old, in Tenerife with a few other fighters, put himself through a punishing schedule, ahead of his 21st April fight against Nonito Donair, in […]

Speared, but what fun!

DESPITE having just four players, Dennis and his intrepid Palms Pool Bar team, who made the long trip to Spear Chuckers, were rewarded handsomely with a brilliant night of banter. Okay, they lost 8-0, but the evening was all about enjoyment, as it should be, and they had no complaints. Phoenix Bar welcomed Picasso’s Pool […]

Top four stay put!

THE top four in Division One all won their games convincingly this week, especially Legends B, who beat Britannia Inn 9-3 to retain their third place. They are level on points with Scruffy Macs A, who won their derby game against Scruffy Boys 8-4. Tony Ashurst, showing why he is second in the stats, won […]

Too hot to handle

Women’s volleyball CHARACTER is often shown by how teams react to disappointments, and Arona Tenerife Sur showed their mettle to  put their Queen’s Cup Final choker behind them. They blitzed their way to another 3-0 away win in the league, as CV San Cugat of Madrid felt the full force. A close 25-23 first set […]

Pedros at the double, …for a point apiece!

CD Marino 2 CD El Cotillo 2 MARINO were flying, with a two-goal lead that hinted at more in the second half, but they were brought down to earth as El Cotillo clawed their way back for a share of the spoils. The all-blues will be wondering how they failed to capitalise on an opening […]

Iberostar’s rusty return

Basketball THE two-week break for international games played its part in a slow return to action for Iberostar Tenerife. Sunday’s home league defeat by Andorra caught them in particularly sluggish form, as they went down 78-69. But Wednesday night’s 71-66 win at UCAM Murcia, in the European Champions League, at least left hope for the […]


ALL the Pas O Nadas A players were in top form after travelling to Emerald Lounge, resulting in a resounding, 7-1 victory for the side. Wattie hit a 180 and Daddy Cool a sensational, 14-dart leg, while  Andy and Gualty both finished on the bull. But Emerald put up a good show, nevertheless. Palms Pool […]
