"We have concluded that today will be Craig Harrington's last day with the team. It is a decision that was made based on the results, it was not what we expected".
The match that the Águilas lost against the Tuzas was a hard-fought match in which Club América went out onto the field to try to turn the score around, as they also lost the first leg with a score of 2-1.
However, the Tuzas was well positioned on the field and took advantage of the spaces that the Azulcremas gave them and in the 9th minute, they made their presence felt on the scoreboard.
Club América Women's loss to Pachuca Women's reflected the Eagles in a mess
In that minute, forward Charlyn Corral got into the box and sent in a cross, but defender Janelly Farías was unable to control the ball and ended up scoring an own goal, giving the Tuzas a 1-0 lead.
With the clock ticking down, the Azulcremas decided to go forward but this only left them more vulnerable to the Tuzas' attacks and in the 67th minute, Charlyn Corral received the ball just outside the opponent's box and fired a strong shot across the face of goal to make it 2-0 and 4-1 on aggregate.
But Club América did not give up and a few moments later, Daniela Espinosa, who beat her marker to the ball and with an accurate header, closed the gap between the two clubs.
In the 80th minute, the Azulcremas had a valuable opportunity to score when a penalty kick was awarded, but Katty Martinez, who was in charge of taking it, put the ball into the stands, wasting the opportunity.
