Terrassa are the first team to be promoted to the second division A after winning their fourth match in a row, this time 1-3 at Barakaldo. It was comfortable win, with Besora giving them the lead and Gibanel getting a second after the break from the halfway line. Keko made it three before Sendoa pulled one back from the penalty spot. Ceuta were the only team who could catch them, and they lost 3-1 to Hércules. Parrado gave the team from Alicante the lead, with Hércules scoring twice in the second half after Jonathan had hit an equaliser.
Real Madrid B kept their hopes alive with a 3-1 victory over group D leaders Almería. The locals took a two goal lead, and although Armindo pulled one back after the break, Luis García made sure in the last minute. It may be one short though, as they lost by a difference of three in Almería and have the head to head goal average against them. In the other group D game, Pontevedra stayed level with Real Madrid B after defeating Espanyol B 0-1. Capi got the only goal just before the break. Pontevedra are two points behind Almería, who they play in a double header over the next two weeks.
Getafe are close to promotion after defeating Hospitalet 1-2, the Catalans' first defeat on their artificial pitch all season. Barila gave the team from Madrid the lead on the stroke of half time, and Mora added a second after the break. However Hospitalet pulled one back from a dubious penalty, and the visitors had to hold on with ten men for the last ten minutes when Barila got a second booking for encroaching the area as the kick was being taken. In the other group match, Cultural Leonesa lost 1-4 to Motril. The visitors scored twice through Ortíz and Arenaza, with Angel Luis pulling one back before half time. The visitors score two more late in the second half.
Compostela moved four points clear at the top of group B pending Barça B's game with Valencia B on Sunday after defeating Mérida Promesas 1-0. Juanito scored for the Gallicians midway through the first half. (15.06.02)
