Galindo, of the visiting team, failed in the first instance on the second pitch, but the contest was equalized after the failure of Kevin López. After the mistake of Juan Pablo Montes and Motagua, Gerardo Gordillo, from Communications, could have finished the batch, but ended up wasting the occasion.
After eighteen penalties in a row scored, both teams failed again on their 17th shots. However, in the next turn, Kevin Grivalja could not respond to Motagua’s hit and ended giving victory to the Hondurans.
