Huayrapungo's goal-fest in Ecuador

And so to the second week of the football tournament and an historic display of guts and determination from our Huayrapungo team….after the early morning low cloud and mist cleared the brave 7, coached and cajoled as always by Jaime, with volunteers Graham and Sam adding technical expertise, took to the field and proceeded to play their hearts out in a stunning 9-0 victory.

The goal-fest saw Jose Luis shoot home 4 confident goals, a delighted Alex got 1, Robinson slotted 2 and our lion hearted defender Darwin scored 2 – from just outside his own goal area – leaving the supporters ecstatic.

This victory, plus their performance in the previous week, earned them a playoff match for 3rd place – they were unable to repeat their earlier victory and lost 1-0 though took 4th place out of the 10 teams overall. What an amazing day for Huayrapungo!!
