At minute 60, a free kick again by Torres found the right foot of Gilberto Hernández, to dislodge Arnedo and make it 1-1 on the table.

Cox had the clearest chance of extending the score at minute 64, but his shot was covered by goalkeeper Samudio, drowning out the goal cry of the university team.

At minute 68, Mario Carmona could not head the goal with distance, after a center by David Álvarez.

At minute 75, Arnedo covered a powerful shot by Jorge Serrano, the university students were saved.

CAI had the last goal play in the 93rd minute, in a shot by Víctor Ávila, Arnedo saved his goal again.

With the tie at one, the Panamanian soccer champion in the Clausura 2022 in Panama was defined in overtime.
