            Latin American Round Up Sep. 20

            HONDURAS

            In an act reminiscent of an incident involving Diego Maradona in 1994, Motagua goalkeeper Donaldo Morales shot at reporter Saul Carranza with an air gun over criticism of his performances in the sports daily Diez.

            Carranza was interviewing midfielder Jorge Claros after a practice at the Estadio Nacional in Tegucigalpa when Morales appeared with a gun and shot at them, hitting the reporter twice and the player once, according to a weekend report in Diez.

            The paper said that Morales later asked Carranza to forgive him but the reporter refused. It said Motagua president Pedro Atala would sanction Morales.

            Maradona also shot at reporters with an air rifle when they were staking him out.

            COLOMBIA

            La Equidad’s coach, former Colombia midfielder Alexis Garcia, began a suspension of one month and one week for fighting the previous weekend.

            Having been sent to the stands during a 1-1 draw at home to Boyaca Chico, he came to blows with the visiting team’s owner Eduardo Pimentel. The match was suspended six minutes early and the score stood. Both men were fined, Garcia 3.35 million Colombian pesos ($1,862) and Pimentel 3.6 million.

            Leaders Independiente Santa Fe went five points clear in the Apertura championship after a 2-0 win in the Bogota derby against once great arch-rivals Millonarios, who are in danger of relegation.

            Second-placed Atletico Huila came from two goals down in the final 10 minutes to draw 2-2 with Atletico Nacional.

            Title holders Atletico Junior were 3-1 up at Cucuta Deportivo after 37 minutes but they had Cesar Fawcett sent off in the 39th and ended up conceding two more goals for a 3-3 draw.

            URUGUAY

            Nacional notched their first win in four matches, 1-0 against Bella Vista, after having newly-signed Argentine-born former Spain left back Mariano Pernia sent off four minutes before halftime with a straight red card for a studs-up tackle on an opponent.

            Their 34-year-old former Argentina midfielder Marcelo Gallardo damaged a knee ligament after only nine minutes and will be out for two months, and Uruguay defender Sebastian Coates followed him off in the 51st with a cut above the eye.

            But luck went Nacional’s way in the 57th minute when Santiago “Morro” Garcia scored. Video replays showed he helped control the ball with his hand but the referee missed it.

            BOLIVIA

            The Bolivian government has agreed a plan for the football federation (FBF) to pay off its debts of more than $2 million after tax authorities seized FBF headquarters and other assets.

            Aurora took over the lead in the Clausura championship with a victory over Blooming while The Strongest, having been docked three points last week for fielding one too many foreign players in a recent match, toppled previous leaders Real Potosi 4-2.

            VENEZUELA

            Colombian Cesar Alzate scored both goals as Trujillanos beat champions Caracas FC 2-0 to leave them three points off the pace in the Apertura championship.

            Deportivo Tachira lead with 16 points from six matches after a 4-1 win over Deportivo Venezuela.

            Real Esppor, under former Caracas coach Noel Sanvicente, are second, one point behind and with a game in hand after winning all their five games.

            CHILE

            Audax Italiano, unbeaten in 11 matches under Argentine coach Omar Labruna, beat Deportes La Serena 2-1 despite playing from the 20th minute a man short after defender Boris Rieloff was sent off.

            With leaders Universidad de Chile playing in midweek, Universidad Catolica could have gone top but they were held 2-2 at Universidad de Concepcion and are a point behind.

            PARAGUAY

            Libertad and Cerro Porteno remain neck and neck in the Clausura championship race eight points ahead of third-placed Rubio Nu after 10 matches. Libertad beat Sol de America 1-0 and Cerro Porteno won 2-1 against title holders Guarani.

            ECUADOR

            Leaders LDU Quito, five points clear in the second phase of the championship, won 1-0 away to Espoli. Second-placed Deportivo Cuenca upset Barcelona 2-1 away at the Monumental in Guayaquil.

            PERU

            Group A leaders San Martin beat Jose Galvez 3-0 with a Hebert Arriola hat-trick and are 11 points ahead of second-placed Alianza Lima.

            Cesar Vallejo and Leon de Huanuco are top in Group B with 58 points apiece although Cesar Vallejo have a game in hand.

            Teams carry their points over from the first phase of the championship to the second in which they are divided into two groups. The group winners play off for the title.

              Battered Crew wins on late Mendoza goal

              Peruvian forward Andres Mendoza scored the first meaningful goal of his Major League Soccer career last night in Crew Stadium, propelling the Crew to a 1-0 victory over visiting Santos Laguna.

              The victory gave the Crew (3-1, nine points) the lead in Group B of the CONCACAF Champions League. More important might have been the confidence restored after a 4-0 loss to the Seattle Sounders on Saturday.

              "This was big," Crew midfielder Eddie Gaven said. "It definitely felt good. We didn't give them a lot of time to play. We were able to create turnovers. We were able to take the game to them."

              Mendoza struck in the 87th minute, placing a low, rolling shot from the top of the penalty arc into the corner of the net.

              Mendoza, who was not made available after the game, crumpled to the turf after the shot went in.

                  South American Round Up Sep. 27

                  CHILE

                  Ten-man Colo Colo caught Universidad de Chile at the top of the standings when substitute Cristobal Jorquera scored five minutes into stoppage time from a free kick to give them a 2-1 victory away to Deportes La Serena.

                  Colo Colo's Chile defender Roberto Cereceda was sent off a quarter of an hour from time.

                  "La U" lost their second match in less than a week, going down 2-1 to Palestino.

                  Audax Italiano continued their remarkable unbeaten run under Argentine coach Omar Labruna into a 12th match with a 3-2 away win over Universidad Catolica despite having their two forwards sent off.

                  Argentine Mauro Olivi was shown a straight red card after half an hour for a foul on central defender David Henriquez and Bryan Carrasco was dismissed with 15 minutes remaining after a second booking for time wasting.

                  Universidad de Chile and Colo Colo have 51 points apiece, Catolica 50 and Audax 46.

                  ECUADOR

                  Barcelona, Ecuador's most popular club and one of the most successful, are in danger of missing out on the championship final after a 1-0 loss to second-placed Deportivo Cuenca left them 10 points behind leaders LDU Quito in third.

                  The club decided in the early hours of Monday to sack their Argentine coach Juan Manuel Llop. His compatriot Ruben Dario Insua, formerly with rivals Deportivo Quito from the capital, is a favourite to replace him.

                  PERU

                  Group A leaders San Martin are a massive 13 points clear of Alianza Lima after a 1-0 win away to CNI in the Amazonian city of Iquitos. Alianza and champions Universitario, who are 17 points adrift, drew the big Lima derby 0-0.

                  Leon de Huanuco lead Group B with 61 points after a 2-1 away win over Cienciano in the Andean city of Cusco. They are three points ahead Cesar Vallejo, who went down 3-0 at Juan Aurich.

                  Teams carry their points over from the first phase of the championship to the second in which they are divided into two groups. The group winners play off for the title.

                  COLOMBIA

                  Independiente Santa Fe increased their lead in the Clausura to six points after 11 matches when they beat Atletico Nacional 1-0 away in Medellin.

                  Venezuelan midfielder Luis Manuel Seijas headed the only goal from a free kick after team mate Yulian Anchico had missed a penalty.

                  Coach Walter Aristizabal resigned from his job with Deportivo Pereira after a 1-1 home draw with Envigado in a match between the two bottom teams.

                  BOLIVIA

                  Real Potosi crushed Guabira 4-0 and lead the Clausura standings, level on points with Bolivar.

                  Title holders Wilstermann, bottom of the table, squandered a two-goal lead, conceding a last-minute equaliser to draw the Cochabamba derby 2-2 with Aurora.

                  PARAGUAY

                  Cerro Porteno, held 0-0 at home by Sport Colombia, opened a one-point lead in the Clausura after Libertad lost 2-1 away to 3 de Febrero.

                  Olimpia, improving under Uruguayan coach Luis Cubilla, beat Trinidense 2-1 to move within seven points of Cerro Porteno in third place.

                  URUGUAY

                  Champions Penarol joined Danubio at the top of the Apertura standings after five rounds with a 2-1 win over Bella Vista at the Centenario. Danubio were held 1-1 by Liverpool.

                        Thanks dude for the recognition

                        We didn't make it because we had a horrible coach, Jose Chemo del Solar, he is an former player who thought he could be an NT's coach, but failed miserably.

                        Pizarro, Guerrero and Farfan haven't been called to play since 2007, we had an incident were several players went out to party one day before a match against Brazil (which we drew 1-1), since then the players I mentioned and Acasiete (Peru's finest CB) haven't played for Peru.

                        We ended up last place in the WC 2010 qualifiers, a complete disgrace. Our football has been in a constant descent for the past 20 years due to corruption in our federation and poor management.

                        But we have faith that it will improve, now our NT has a new coach, Markarian, and he has called Acasiete, Farfan, Guerrero and Pizarro.

                        And hell yeah we r better than Chile! Peru will do great in Copa America 2011, mark my words

                              Give Peru 10 years of constant development in football and a government that fully supports the football federation and we will see how far Peru goes

                              Chile has a good squad and so does Peru, the difference is that we haven't been able to count with 4 of our best players in the last 3 years (Pizarro, Farfan, Guerrero and Acasiete) and that our federation is still very corrupt.

                              It also has to do with the kind of leadership, we tried a "Klinsmann experiment" with Chemo del Solar and we ended up last in the WC qualificatifyers. Chile on the other hand have al "Loco Bielsa", a coach with experience and character, who took them very far.

                              Things will change now for Peru, we have "El Mago Markarian" and he seems to be what we were missing, that and having our 4 best players back
