Ferro Carril Oeste beat tonight by 3-1 a San Martin de Tucumán, as a visitor, which took a huge step to get into the semifinals of the Reduced for the second ascent to First division. Caballito’s team, which has not visited the local football elite for more than 20 seasons, was very well placed in the face of the rematch of the quarter key.
In the framework of a hectic first period, Ferro knew how to take advantage of his effectiveness and placed himself at the advantage, when he had done very little in offense. Thus, at 17 minutes, a header from Molina, after a corner kick from the right sector, allowed the eleven visitor to go ahead on the board.
The goal ‘moved the jaw’ of a cast from Tucumán, which lost the fluidity and determination that it had exhibited at the start. In this way, those led by the Orsi-Gómez duo accommodated themselves better to the field and remained crouched to score a lethal counter.
And protected by the terrible setback of the defenders of ‘Ciruja’, Caballito’s team applied a blow that seemed like a knockout, when Molina dressed as an assistant for a Brian Fernández, who showed all his hierarchy in the definition. 0-2 at minute 42, with what La Ciudadela looked like a wake.
However, the indecision of the ‘Verde’ coaching staff, by keeping an injured Gabriel Díaz (later Sebastián Olivarez entered), allowed San Martín to recover his vital signs, when Diarte took the ball ahead and reduced the figures.
At the beginning of the second half, the ‘rojiblanco’ team bet to get ahead on the field, with the income of Chaves and Daniel González. The initial clean and jerk allowed San Martín to roam Marcelo Miño’s area, but he lacked fairness and determination to unbalance in the final meters.
The most favorable situation for equality was had by Nicolás Sansotre, who broke away on the right and tried a shot that went next to the post (9m.). The visiting team did not go through shocks but neither decided to put the fifth gear to try to finish the game.
Until, at 39m., In a free kick at the gates of the area, on the right side, Mosca’s hierarchy (a former San Martín, by the way) appeared to place the ball at an angle. The rematch will be played next Monday, at 9:10 p.m., in Caballito, where Ferro will seek to sentence this advantage that he obtained in someone else’s rodeo.
