Ecuador Primera A Wrap: Five-star Emelec back on track, Independiente march on

6 April 2014 22:01

Primera A leaders Emelec gained revenge over El Nacional by hammering them 5-1 at Estadio George Capwell 5-1 on Sunday.

Emelec slumped to a 2-0 defeat against Carlos Sevilla's side last weekend and were then beaten 2-1 by Brazilian side Flamengo in the Copa Libertadores on Thursday.

But Gustavo Quinteros' charges ended a poor week on a high note as they swept aside fourth-placed El Nacional with a clinical performance.

Cristian Nasuti set them on their way with a goal after 27 minutes, then Miller Bolanos stunned the visitors with a second goal two minutes later.

Jorge Valencia halved the deficit 13 minutes after the break, but Marcos Caicedo added a third goal from the penalty spot 10 minutes from time before further strikes from Angel Mena and Javier Charcopa added insult to injury.

That victory ensured Emelec maintained their one-point advantage over Independiente Del Valle, who had taken over at the summit with a 2-1 win over struggling Mushuc Runa on Friday.

Maximiliano Barreiro gave Runa a sixth-minute lead and they looked set to pull off a shock win before Junior Sornoza kept his nerve to equalise from the spot seven minutes from time and Gabriel Cortez won it a minute later.

Third-placed LDU Loja slipped up on Saturday as they were consigned to a 4-2 defeat at Manta, who were indebted to two goals from Jorge Palacios Avila.

There was more misery for bottom-of-the-table Deportivo Cuenca, who have only won one league victory to their name this season after they were beaten 1-0 at home by Deportivo Quito.

In the other games to be played on Sunday, Armando Wila scored both goals in Universidad Catolica's home victory over Barcelona and Olmedo were 1-0 winners of LDU Quito.
