Atlante finally beat Guillermo Allison at 16', in a play in which Mauro Brazil mistimed the ball, therefore that came to Edson Partida, who, within the area, controlled and yielded to 'Hobbit' Bermúdez, a footballer who ended up pushing the round into the nets.
Defensive errors continued in Celaya, who was once again threatened by Atlante at 25′, but once again Guillermo Allison appeared to cover the shot by Juan Domínguez, who had beaten the defenders of the local team, same situation which was repeated at 44', but the goalkeeper launched himself to send the ball into a corner kick.
Los Cajeteros, who had finished the first half with Guillermo Allison as a star, tied the score at 47' with a long-distance shot from Carlos Acosta, who beat 'Gansito' Hernández with a left-footed shot that slipped into the bottom corner.< /p>

With the tie on the scoreboard, the process of the match was held largely in the center of the pitch, so there were no dangerous actions in the two goals, which were again perforated, so the final came until overtime.
The script of the match did not change, both squads, afraid of receiving a score, had a cautious stance, except for individual actions, such as that of Juan Domínguez, who eluded rivals to face Guillermo Allison, but before taking the shot , the Atlante footballer stumbled and was unable to define before the goalkeeper bailed out, who kept the ball in his hands without any setback.
Given how closed the game became after 1-1, Atlante seeked to do damage with long-distance shots, as happened at 111′, with a shot by Rolando González, which was saved for Guillermo Allison, but he left the rebound to Maximiliano García, who finished off with a header and the goalkeeper appeared again to save his goal. However, the ball crashed into the post and later hit the heel of the goalkeeper who sent the ball into the net of his cabin.
This is how we narrate @Atlante's third goal for @TudnRadio
