Soccer-Rayo climb out of drop zone with surprise win at Alaves


Soccer-Rayo climb out of drop zone with surprise win at Alaves
Rayo Vallecano's Raul de Tomas scored with a 47th minute header for a surprise 1-0 win at Alaves and drag his side out of La Liga's relegation zone for the first time this season. The striker, on loan from Real Madrid, nodded home his ninth league goal of the season from close range to earn Rayo their fourth win from five matches.

Rayo's surge in form has helped them rise to 17th place, two points clear of Galician side Celta Vigo. Fifth-placed Alaves were far below their best and fell to their first defeat at Mendizorroza all season, with Abelardo's side winning just two of their last nine in all competitions.
