Antigua GFC beat a crestfallen Iztapa 5-2, who after six games without winning falls to the relegation places.

Antigua GFC continues scoring dynamics at home and this Saturday they did not fail against an Iztapa in low hours. The Colonials had no mercy on the Sailfish and with a score of 5-2 they sent the team from the port to the relegation places of the National League.

Antigua, which once again showed off its verdiblanco color before its people, is consolidated in the seventh position of the table with 23 units, which allows it to be closer and closer to sealing its ticket to the league, despite the irregular tournament that they have disputed.

For the Sailfish, the result is adverse and not only in view of the 2023 Clausura Tournament and its league, but also because they are now in relegation places in the accumulated. With Achuapa’s victory and the loss at Pensativo, Iztapa is eleventh in the fight for relegation on goal difference against Mixco. The Chicharroneros could take advantage of the accumulated in case they tie or defeat Cobán Imperial this Sunday.

The goal festival in Antigua

The king of soccer, the goal, did not take long to appear in the Colonial City and at minute 6′ Cristian Hernández opened the scoring after a subtle pass from Carlos Mejía. The colonial advantage was extended after 22 minutes at the feet of Óscar Castellanos, ‘Coca’ surprised the rival goalkeeper with a long-distance shot.

When everything seemed that the road would lead to a local win, Iztapa put on his best clothes and just one minute after ‘Coca’ scored, Jonathan Diéguez beat Braulio Linares with a low shot. The first part would not have enough goals and at 41′ Romario Da Silva extended the local victory to 3-1, a result with which they went to rest.

In the second half it was the Sailfish who struck first. At 56′ a pass into space was taken advantage of by Cristian Albirzures and with a shot to the furthest stick from Linares, he tightened the score making it 3-2. All chances of a comeback were snuffed out by Carlos Mejía, who after a series of rebounds found a cross from Óscar Castellanos and volleyed to make it 4-2.

As every story has its end, the first scorer of the match was also the one who sealed the win. Cristian Hernández at 74′ finished off from the edge of the area and, despite Javier Irazún’s stretch, scored with a great goal, which hit the post, the final 5-2. The defeat was a hard blow for the visit, which is getting closer to relegation.
