Izeta signs a brace in a match to dream of Iban Fagoaga’s men
There are matches for some to dream of and others to suffer from their worst nightmares. That has happened to Arenas, who have scored a resounding and unappealable 6-0 in Gobela at the expense of Peña Sport sunk in the abyss. Iban Fagoaga’s men have made history by sentencing with such a result a rival who did not deserve to take such a load either, after closing the first period of tuteo with 1-0, in which they defended successfully.
Aritz, Grande (Escobar, m. 60), Jonma, Murua, Celihueta (Zorrilla, m. 77), Ibargoien, Estrada, Cortezón, Izeta (Arzalluz, m. 68), Garro and Lazka (Rozas, m. 68).
Recarte, Sádaba, Aguirrebeña, Mikel González, Orcariz (Uriz, m. 18), Gorka Jiménez (Almandoz, m. 70), Vania Adot, Rubio (Lizarraga, m. 67), Aitor Aguirre (Satrustegi, m. 76), Albes (Cubillo, m. 46) and Lintxeta.

Albert Sanchez. He showed yellow cards to local Celihueta (74′), and to visitors Ocariz (6′), Mikel González (57′) and Sádaba (59′).
But the debacle opened after half an hour. Izeta turned his privileges to open the account and reinforce his image as a scorer. There was little else in the first half in which Cortezón tried without luck on a couple of occasions as soon as the game started. Arenas had come out on top in their attempt to score three points to get closer to the positions with the right to play the play-offs, but the Navarrese defended themselves with order, although their offensive attempts ended in a ride by Albes that Murua aborted, in the 24th minute.
But Unai Jauregi’s team added another couple of setbacks. The first with Ozcariz’s injury, in minute 18, replaced by Uriz, and after Albes -already in minute 45-, who suffered a severe blow to the head. After the resumption, the festival of red and black goals arrived that took the public in flight.
As if that were not enough, the second goal came as soon as the second period started. Lazka received a measured pass to beat Recarte low. And if in minute 47 the scoreboard reflected a 2-0, just four minutes later, Urko Izeta converted a direct free kick to score his tenth goal of the season.
The rest of the goals came in the final stretch of the game, with the Tafalla team psychologically sunk by such harsh punishment and a local team ready to enjoy. Gonzalo Zorrilla dribbled to his marker to score at will and increase the crater of the scoreboard.
In ’85, Gonzalo Zorrilla was once again in charge of converting a killer pass. And already in the discount, Arzalluz served Mikel Escobar, who entered from behind, so that he could place a shot for the top corner at will. A feast of goals that Peña Sport choked on.
