UES clinch the last available place in the semi-finals
The group stage of the Women’s Americas Winners Cup El Salvador 2023 is done and dusted with the four semi-finals positions defined. The final decisions were taken: São Pedro finished top of the group, while UES took the last spot in the semi-finals, thus joining Barra de Santiago and Corral de Mulas.
Corral’s win sends UES through
With one spot in the semi-finals up for grabs, Cali knew they had to beat Corral de Mulas, otherwise it would be UES the team to qualify.
A brace by Arseneault countered Cindy’s opener to put Cali 2-1 up, but in the second period Marissa equalised the match.
The Salvadoran team would go ahead again with a goal from Katty, but Ali Hall’s determined shot put all things level and the match went to extra-time, where the result didn’t suffer any changes.
Cali were then playing their qualification in the penalty shootout, but not only did Corral de Mulas’s goalkeeper save a penalty, all the takers found the back of the net, inflicting a 5-3 defeat to Cali on penalties.
São Pedro round up a perfect group stage
Four games, four wins for the Brazilians. In the match that decided the first place of the group, São Pedro beat Barra de Santiago 6-3.
Taii put on a show and scored four of her team’s six goals and thus finishing the group stage as the competition’s top scorer.
