Pachuca win in classic final 3-2 over Hurricanes FC
January 28, 2019
The TPSL final lived up to the hype and with a sold out crowd the fans were not disappointed. The Canes started strong and scored the opening goal after just 4 minutes, Juan Nava with a cut inside to shoot it home from 20 yards with the left foot drive into the corner.
Pachuca responded with a goal from Mauricio Betancour just 3 minutes later with a fine goal a chip over the keepers head who came out of his line. The game was played at a fast pace with some great football been played from both teams. Pachuca looked the more likely to score the next goal and they did although it came from a terrible mistake by Canes keeper Garner. The ball came across and it was an easy one for Garner to bring in but he slapped at it and it fell to Alejandro to tap in home from close range. Pachuca continued to have the better of the first half but Garner stepped up his game for the rest of the half.
The Canes made some changes in 2nd half and brought in Ramon, Marco and Diaz. It seemed to change the game for them and Canes started out strong again second half. Like the first half started Hurricanes kept up the pressure and had some great chances to equalise but some poor finishing and good goalkeeping kept them at bay. That was until Canes got a free kick which Diaz took and played a perfect cross for the leaping Jared Nauck to head home a great goal to make it 2-2 on 62nd minute and game on.
The Canes had momentum and it looked like they would go on and win it. However with no goals to come they would pay the price for all them misses as Pachuca drove forward with only a few mins to go played a through ball in with Hurricanes defender Jerson making a howler of it and left his keeper in no mans land for that man again Mauricio to grab his second but all important winner to break Hurricanes hearts. Mauricio was the difference on the night he got two chances and he scored them both.
Congrats to Pachuca and MVP Mauricio Betancour with the brace.
