Chronicle: Tondela wins three points against a Boavista reduced to nine


Today, Mario González and Salvador Agra led Tondela’s three winning goals (3-1), in the reception to Boavista of the 14th round of the 1st League of football, with the ‘chess players’ playing an hour reduced to nine.

Mario González (40) and Salvador Agra’s ‘bis’ (56 and 85) left Tondela today in the middle of the league table, beating a Boavista reduced to 10 in the 11th minute, with the expulsion of Devenish, who fought an opponent who was still isolated, and nine at 30, when Chidozie was expelled for the same reason, but this time, committing a penalty, which the Tondelense Enzo Martinez wasted.

The first half started balanced, with the two teams organized and in good pace, with Jhon Murillo leading the first dangerous shot of the game, when he crossed close to Léo Jardim’s right post.

In the seventh minute, Angel Gomes shot Babacar Niasse’s cross from the cross, but with no danger with the ball passing the left post.

After 11 minutes, the game started to be more unbalanced, after the expulsion of Cristian Devenish with direct red, which fouled Mario González when he was isolated.

In the 30th minute, another direct red, this time for Chidozie Awaziem, in a play in which Jhon Murillo entered the great area of ​​the isolated Boavista and the central ‘checkered’ would have held the opponent’s jersey.

The Tondelenses also celebrated the penalty converted by Enzo Martinez, but the move was invalid, with the referee pointing out the host player’s fault for two touches on the ball.

However, the scorer was not long in coming and, in the 40th minute, Mario González received the ball from Bebeto and headed it into the ‘checkered’ goal, allowing the home team to take the break in advantage.

Tondela’s numerical advantage continued to facilitate the ‘beirão’ game and, in the 56th minute, Salvador Agra shot wide, close to the goal, expanding the score.

Despite being reduced numerically, Boavista did not lower his arms and, three minutes later, reacted to the opponent’s second goal, with Ricardo Mangas deflecting a ball crossed by Elis and directing it into the goal.

Until the end of the game, the nine players on the field of Boavista continued to fight and form a defensive barrier to Tondela in the various approaches made by the goal of Léo Jardim, who avoided the third goal to Tondela, by holding a shot by Jhon Murillo, at 68 minutes.

The pressure of Tondela returned to bear fruit and, in the 85th minute, Salvador Agra ‘scored twice’ and increased the difference in the scoreboard.

With today’s victory, Tondela took a ‘leap’ from the table, placing himself provisionally in ninth, with 15 points, while Boavista remains in the relegation zone, in 18th and last place, with 11 points.
