Santa Fe Suffers Worst Defeat in Women’s League History Against Atlético Nacional

Santa Fe premiered its third Women’s League champion title in a sad way: the Leonas had a game to forget and Atlético Nacional beat them without mitigation, on the second date of the championship.

It is Santa Fe’s worst defeat in the history of the women’s championship and only the second time it has conceded four goals in a match: the first was on September 7, 2021, when it lost 1-4 against Deportivo Cali.

The great figure in the triumph of Nacional, a team that had rested on the first day, was Yoreli Rincón, who continues to show signs of her great talent and is filled with reasons to ask again for a place in the Colombian National Team, from which she was deleted since 2018.

A free kick from Yoreli, who hung the ball in a corner of Yessica Velásquez’s goal, opened the way to victory for Nacional, in the 19th minute. With that score the first stage ended.

The local team, led by the Venezuelan Ómar Ramírez, felt the losses a lot: the permanent ones, like those of Liana Salazar and Daniela Garavito, who went to Millonarios and Gabriela Huertas, who went to Chile: and the temporary ones, like the of María Camila Reyes, who is with the National Team in the Gold Cup.

Of the starting eleven that won the final against América last year, only two players remained, one starter, goalkeeper Velásquez, and one who was a substitute that day, Lucero Robayo. And it was noted that the team is just finding its way.

Nacional took advantage of its speed and also of the errors, such as the second goal, scored by Sara Córdoba in the 60th after a ball that Santa Fe lost in its field and a bad start by Velásquez.

A new free kick goal from Yoreli Rincón, at 68, and Paraguay’s María de los Ángeles Portillo’s debut scorer, at 90+3, sealed the painful defeat for the Lionesses.
