The match began intense with both teams trying to find the rival goal. At 4 minutes, Alianza had the first approach with a free kick on the edge of the area that was deflected by the Pampero rear.

Alianza immediately took advantage of a counterattack with Michell Mercado on the left side and served at ground level for Marvin Monterroza to get to define without any mark and beat Joel Almeida who launched himself to his left side but could not stop the shot of the midfielder from National selection.

The emotional blow was noticed in the Usluteco team and the albos were able to increase the count two minutes later after Ezequiel Rivas won the baseline and sent a center that Juan Carlos Portillo did not take advantage of by closing on the far post. The left winger sent his shot to the side of the goal of Almeida, who had remained static before the appearance of the ‘cabrita’.

For the complementary stage, Gamarra sent Luis Canales and Edgar Cruz to the field seeking to react in the match. In the first few minutes, Wilson Rugama had the opportunity to even things out with a shot from ground level but Mario González dressed as a hero by stretching and sending the ball to the corner.

Firpo began to look for the aerial game and each time they began to win individual duels in the capital area.

So much momentum brought its reward and Luis Canales managed to score in minute 57. Firpo generated an option with Jomal Williams who sent a deep pass to Edgar Cruz and when he was in front of González he chose to assist and Canales defined an empty goal.

The Gamarra team began to tilt the game in their favor and was clearly dominating it. On minute 67 ‘, the pampero team went up on the scoreboard after Jomal Williams sent a powerful shot outside the area that stayed on the right side of the Alba goal and left Mario with no chances.

For the last 15 minutes, Mrléndez commanded all the artillery with Riascos and Arboleda in search of a tie. Precisely, the top scorer of the contest had his chance to have a hand in hand with Almeida and sent his shot to the side of the rival post drowning out the goal cry among the white supporters.
