This time there was football in Azogues. After the surprising suspension of soccer seven days ago, when the players of Gualaceo and orense They were minutes away from leaving the field of play after warming up, this Friday the ball rolled again: Super Guala beat the Bananeros 2-1 and, with one more match, reached The National at the top of the position table of Phase 1 of the LigaPro 2023.
Despite the cold night at Jorge Andrade Cantos, which forced the teacher Leonardo Vanegas to wrap up very well, the homeowners came out on fire… It took just seven minutes to get ahead: Joaquín Verges, the person in charge of set pieces, took a corner that Olmes García brought down, who assisted Tomson Minda.
