Terrorist fanatics hit rock-bottom!

ISIS fanatics have, horrifically, threatened to behead Spain’s superstar footballers Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo at next month’s World Cup in Russia. They have used a series of distressing posters, and one photo-shopped image shows the Barcelona and Real Madrid stars being pinned down by jihadists, armed with knives, on a packed stadium’s pitch. The […]

Ponitka makes a point

Basketball Iberostar Tenerife 73  Obradoiro 69 IBEROSTAR are looking good for eighth place in the league, and the La Laguna-based side can just about count on their place in the play-off championship thanks to this home win. After losing the first quarter 20-18, Tenerife fought back well to take the other quarters 11-7, 25-24, and […]

Andy and Luc are tucking in

A BIG thanks to all those who turned out for the Charity Darts Night, at El Ritual, Los Abrigos, last Friday. The format was 501, double in, double out, with partners changing in every round. The experience of Andy and Luc shone through as they won the prize: dinner for two at The Rockin’ Horse […]

Champ Chloe’s home date 

MORE than 40 water-based sports and activities will be on offer at the annual Fenautica event, in Marina del Sur, Las Galletas, next weekend (2nd-3rd June). World surfski champion Chloe Bunnett will be taking part to explain this lesser-known sport. Surskis, narrow, speedy, and more manoeuvrable than kayaks, were used, originally, for life-saving at sea […]

Closer to where they B-long

TENERIFE B, disciplined and confident, brought back a goal-less draw from Inter Madrid in the away leg of their promotion final. The home leg, on Sunday at 11am, was scheduled originally for the Javier Perez training complex, near the north airport. But it soon became clear that interest would outstrip the 2,000 crowd limit. Now, […]

Steadying the ship

CD Tenerife 1 Sporting Gijon 0 VICTORY against third-placed Sporting Gijon, overdue but most welcome, had plenty of positives. And it should help dispel doubts about offering short-term coach Etxeberria the reins for next season. Players looked as though they were trying to impress the boss, and the 8,123 fans, and Tenerife actually made promotion-chasing […]

Heads they win, in quest for Cup

DRAMA, controversy, and finally salvation saw Egatesa Granadilla Tenerife through to the Queen’s Cup semi-final after Wednesday night’s 2-1 home win. But they were mighty glad to have the cushion of the 1-0 away leg win in Real Betis. That came, courtesy of a 78th-minute header by Ana Gonzalez, and all was set fair for […]

Switched off… dropped out!

Reus 1 CD Tenerife 1 TORRENTIAL rain wasn’t the only thing going down the drain as CD Tenerife failed to beat 10-man Reus. The legs were willing, but, mentally, Tenerife had switched off a couple of weeks ago. Yet it just didn’t make sense, because the promotion play-off door was still ajar for them. Coach […]

A Greek bearing gifts

Basketball Iberostar Tenerife 86 FC Barcelona 81 WHAT a confidence-booster and statement of intent for Iberostar Tenerife, who beat third-placed Barcelona in front of a 5,044, sell-out, La Laguna crowd. It reinforced Tenerife’s eighth-place league standing, and their final play-off Championship spot, with two regular league games still to play. Star of the match was […]

Signing off, on a high

CD Marino 3  Las Palmas C 2 COMFORTABLY safe, with no promotion or relegation issues to chase, both teams could have cruised through their final game. Instead, they served up a keenly-contested goal feast. Kevin Castro showed early initiative, with a delicate chip through to Yassine, before away defender Dani robbed him as he teed […]
