Modagua were not at their best when they visited Olancho, but Colts’ error was enough for the Eagles to win 1-0 and stay in contention at the top of the Apertura competition.
The locals started to look better and more organized in attack, but they didn’t look very strong when facing Marlon Ligona’s frame.
Unfortunately, the only time the Colts did that, they were fouled by Nelson Salgado, who ruled the action offside. 22 minutes passed when Eric Andino received a deep ball, controlled it and crossed for Ovidio Lanza to set up the first.
Mario Martínez showed his best version since arriving at Olancho and despite finding the target, the left-hander was responsible for creating the football and causing great danger from free kicks.
Hernán “La Dota” Medina improved his version with a rematch in the second 45 minutes, where a score from Eddie Hernández was enough to secure victory.
Aquan Slugger appeared in the 55th minute and took advantage of a mistake by the Colts defense. The goalkeeper goes wrong, runs into the defender and hits the ball. This made Juan Ramon Brave Vargas mad.
Olancho FC tried to equalize until the end, but they could not do well, thus adding a new defeat in the current Apertura competition.
