Alajuelense scored the goals and another win in a real party against Puntarenas

Another win for Alajuelense

Joy returned to the Alejandro Morera Soto Stadium with a total buzz in the stands and Alajuelense responded with another win, this time 2-0 against Puntarenas FC, with goals from Doryan Rodríguez and Giancarlo González.

The Rojinegros are defending their four-point lead as leaders of the 2023 Apertura tournament.

Taking into account the national championship games, the Concacaf Central American Cup and the cup tournament, the league achieved 11 consecutive wins. This means that this Andrés Carevic League equalized Alajuelense’s streak of most consecutive wins dating back to 2002, when the team was managed by Jorge Luis Pinto.

Before the first goal, Alajuelense had tried to reach the goal through various means and the one who came closest to breaking the zeros on the scoreboard in the first half was Aarón Suárez, who, after a series of passes, fired a powerful shot the stick crashed into the goal.

The corners taken by Michael Barrantes all proved dangerous, the mischief of Joel Campbell and the magic of Carlos Mora were present in the game, as were the strikes of Alex López. In addition, the attacks on the sides of Ian Lawrence and Carlos Martínez were successful.

But Puntarenas was well placed, forming a defensive block that turned into a five-man wall, leaving up to six players behind at times. But that didn’t mean that the Chuchequeros gave up the attack, because they reached the goal when they could.

Although that wasn’t his priority either. The Orange knew that a mistake could cost them dearly against such an offensive team.

The last action of the first half was missing before the protagonists went to rest and Alajuelense showed an increasingly pronounced characteristic, which is not to stop fighting until the final whistle.

This offensive action was missing, another attack in which Joel Campbell hit the ball from his chest and Doryan Rodríguez, who came from behind without thinking twice, fired a powerful shot that shook the nets of the locker room guarded by Chuchequero goalkeeper Luis Torres .

It was such a tough game that the players on the pitch celebrated with complete euphoria, on the bench the same thing happened with Andrés Carevic, while the call for a goal echoed across the Morera Soto stands.

It was this tumult that the red and black fans needed when they were back in the stadium after scrapping the sanction of a behind-closed-doors game because they were paying for the sinners due to the bad behavior of a few.

The league once again had the joy of its people in the stands and the atmosphere that was also brought by a significant number of Puntarenas fans who came to Morera Soto to support a team that had undergone a very tough test and left the impression that he will be the protagonist with Diego Vásquez on the bench, because it is a completely different Puerto.

The second half remained an intense game that changed completely after Doryan Rodríguez’s goal.

The game became more open and the Chuchequeros devoted more attention to attack, but so did the league. It seemed like another goal would be scored on both sides.

As Puntarenas attacked with greater persistence, the Red-Blacks’ second goal came from a corner from Alex López and a shot from Giancarlo González.

There was a moment of controversy as Puntarenas called for a penalty from Carlos Martínez. However, central referee Pablo Camacho, who tried to be close to the action, didn’t see it that way. And he’s the one in charge.

There was a real party in the stands with the Acosta Municipal Band, which got the porteños and rojinegros singing and gave the game a completely different atmosphere.

And as hosts, the league was the team that celebrated the most, with another three points in an extremely complicated game.
