Villanovense needed 45 minutes to make up for several weeks without victory. The victim was a frugal Tamaraceite in the game who came in search of his first victory away from home, but at no time did he have a real chance of taking even something positive from his visit to Villanueva. Juanma Pavón’s men, almost at half throttle, finished the first half with a comfortable 3-0 lead with goals from Seth and Isra Cano, the two most inspired of Serona’s offensive line along with Viñuela.
A Villanovense who arrived more depleted than previously thought and who had to resort to Oussama, a youth player from La Cruz, to cover the left-back due to Escudero’s last-minute absence and Tapia’s withdrawal due to suspension. In midfield, without Clausí’s option, Lolo Garrido accompanied Pajuelo. Without changes in the rest of the eleven, Juanma Pavón’s men took a long time to enter the game, time in which they conceded the first of the game to the canaries through Carlos González who, with time to control the ball, shot forcing De la Calzada to send to corner
At the end of the first quarter of an hour, Viñuela had the first for the locals, but goalkeeper Javi Sánchez blocked well and, minutes later, he also caught Seth’s first attempt. A Javi Sánchez who then began to have work, in minute 25, avoided Viñuela’s goal after a good action by Seth.
However, the visiting goalkeeper could do little in the corner kick that came shortly after, in minute 27. Isra Cano raised his hand inside the area, although the rehearsed play did not look for the illiterate, but the ball ended up reaching him in a messy play inside the area to which he put clarity to make it 1-0.

Already with the advantage on the scoreboard, the serones took almost total control of the ball, Isra forgave the first one he had to make the second shortly before half an hour of play, but it was Seth who took advantage of a defensive error to overcome in the one-on-one with Javi Sánchez and, somewhat from a heel, shoot into the back of the net making the score 2-0 in the 33rd minute.
The serones continued with their foot on the accelerator to extend that income and leave it at a 3-0 that gave peace of mind. The person in charge of scoring the third was again Isra Cano who signed a brace after a good move by Viñuela down the right wing that he crossed into the area for the Andalusian’s shot (3-0).
The advantage could have been even greater in these first 45 minutes with a new arrival from Seth to the baseline, but this time Javi Sánchez read the canary’s intentions well and intercepted the pass to the small area.
Things were going to get even more complicated for Tamaraceite who in minute 39 were left with one less due to the expulsion of Dani Zizu who saw a direct red card for an ugly tackle on Samu Hurtado.
The second half was almost literally storyless. Just four clear actions, all on the Serón side, with a more participatory Oussama in attack in this second half and a Seth who carried all the danger until match time. Lolo Garrido was able to score the fourth with a measured shot that went wide and Samu Hurtado also had it with a shot that went off the crossbar.
The highlight, perhaps, is David Sánchez’s debut, which seems to overcome the ordeal of injuries that had prevented him from wearing the Serona shirt since his arrival this summer.
