Second Division B - play-offs, day 4

Cádiz made it through to the play-off finals on the away goal rule after a 1-0 victory over Hércules on Sunday lunchtime. The only goal came on the stroke of half time, Jona converting a controversial penalty after the referee ruled that Atienza had fouled Servando in the area. Villar had a second goal disallowed though for a non-existent offside after the break, and the match ended in disarray, visiting midfielder Chechu getting himself sent off for insulting the officials. The result means that both of the teams who lost in the group champions play-offs are through, and as Huesca and Bilbao Athletic are both from the same regional group, the former will meet Huracán, and the latter will face Cádiz, with the return legs in Huesca and Cádiz respectively.

Huesca completed the formalities on Saturday evening, a 2-0 victory over Racing Ferrol ensuring them a place in one of the play-off finals. After the 0-4 victory in the first leg the result was never in doubt, but Tyronne set up Mainz to add to the scoreline shortly before the break, and Pallarés wrapped things up soon after the restart. Athletic Bilbao’s B team Bilbao Athletic will join Huesca in the finals after they drew 1-1 at UCAM Murcia, although the two sides will avoid each other in the draw as both played in same regional group this season.César Remón intercepted a bad back pass to level the tie in the twentieth minute, and the locals wasted several chances to add to the lead after that. However Iturraspe scored a vital away goal with six minutes to go, and the hosts were never going to score the two goals they needed after that. Meanwhile Huracán are through to their first ever play-off final after beating Guadalajara 2-0 in a rainy Valencia. Peris put the locals in front in the tenth minute after Rubio’s shot was blocked, but the result was in doubt until Loro scored the second on a quick counter-attack with the game already in time added on.

Oviedo have been proclaimed honorary champions of the second division B after beating Nàstic 3-0 in the second leg of their group champions final play-off. The Catalans had a one goal advantage from the first leg of this decider between the two promoted teams, but Linares got on the end of a return Dioni cross to open the scoring in the tenth minute, and the striker made it 31 for the season when he ran on to another Dioni assist to beat Tomeu early on in the second half. And with six minutes to go substitute Cervero wrapped things up with an angled shot to put an end to twelve years in the wilderness for the Asturians. (10.06.15)
