Álex Pérez dismantles Portugalete

Leioa couldn’t ask for a better start to the year. The Barça team visited one of the most demanding fields in the Basque Third Federation group, La Florida, and enjoyed a resounding victory against a Portugalete team that did not measure up. The squad led by Jon Castrillo beat the Jarrilleros 3-0, thanks to the clarity in front of the goal of Álex Pérez, who converted the three chances he had, signing a hat-trick that will not be easily forgotten. It was his determination that ended up deciding a more balanced match than what the final score reflected. In this way, the leadership held by Vitoria slips away by nine points from Portugalete and Leioa continues to climb, establishing itself in eighth place.

INCIDENTS 900 spectators in Florida.

In the first moments of the match, Leioa pulverized a Portugalete who seemed to enter the pitch very off-center. The blaugranas were able to endanger the pitchers very easily, without having to break their heads too much, and they took advantage of it, showing great effectiveness in the first two opportunities he had to score. Álex Pérez was the proper name of the meeting. The young 20-year-old forward opened the scoring four minutes into the game, taking advantage of a rebound and scored the second seven minutes later, finishing perfectly against Ibon González starting from the right.

The local team reacted around half an hour into the match, when they had three good chances to close the gap through the boots of Okolo, Iñigo Martín and Aitor Villar. However, it turned out to be a mere mirage. Portugalete was the clear dominator for the rest of the first half, but could not threaten the rival goal against an opponent who took a step back and protected their area with more troops, seeking to preserve their advantage without the risk of carelessness. The second half began with the same tone, with Portugalete taking the lead, but without enough fang to get into the match.

In fact, Leioa continued to be accurate in front of goal and surprised the Portuguese again in the next opportunity he had to score. The protagonist was, once again, Álex Pérez, who received with many meters ahead, without opposition and once again beat Ibon González, scoring a hat-trick that represents his fifth goal in the league this season. With less than a quarter of an hour left in the duel, the referee annulled a goal by Marcos Jimeno due to a controversial offside, much discussed by the stands and the local players. Although the jarrilleros did not give up and tried to reduce the gap until the end, they did not succeed and suffered a tough defeat that they must overcome immediately to be able to compete for the leadership.
