Huachipato cut a streak of 11 games without winning the National Championship by defeating by the minimum account an Italian Audax that came high and winning nine consecutive games.
The italics suffered with the absence of the suspended Sergio Santos, who had been the great figure in the last matches, and could not make the good game they had been showing when they had the Brazilian on court.
Thus, taking advantage of the fact that Audax did not have his main figure, Huachipato showed a good game and took advantage in the 25th minute, after the Panamanian Gabriel Torres appeared at the far post to take a pivoting from Valber Huerta and puncture the ball in the mouth of the goal to mark the first and only goal of the game.
After the goal, the game lowered a bit the intensity and just turned on again in the second half, when Torres could score his second staff, but the debutant goalkeeper of the colony, Eryin Sanhueza, was remarkable to avoid the goal. It was there when the italics reacted and could reach the tie with a header from Fabián Torres that Carlos Lampe deflected with the right and was helped by the crossbar to avoid a goal that seemed to be sung.
Then came the lost chances of those led by Nicolás Larcamón. First it was Javier Urzúa who had a shot in the vertical and, later, it was the Panamanian striker who had a shot in the wood, who, in addition, missed a goal alone and in an incredible way before the goalkeeper. On the end, if it was not enough, it was Javier Parraguez who crashed the ball on the crossbar.
Thus, with a triumph by 1 to 0 that could be even greater, Huachipato climbed to ninth place with 22 points, the same as Palestino but with better goal difference, and is four to enter the qualifying zone for international tournaments . On the other hand, those of Juan José Ribera stopped a streak of nine consecutive wins and were 13th with 18 points, still complicated with the relegation zone.
