The goals: Adriana and Portilho. The goals came at 9 and 41 minutes as two strokes with a mallet, because until then the Lionesses had exposed themselves with an offensive game that gave them a shot on the crossbar at the start and another action that could have fixed the provisional tie.
The game could well do without the second half, although the Blanquirrojo team from Bogotá was very close to cutting differences against a rival who preferred to delay the lines and manage the income.
