Santos win first leg

Atlante got a road goal but Santos got the win in a 2-1 triumph over los Potros in Torreon on Wednesday.

Santos' Darwin Quintero, who has made his presence felt at different times this tournament, scored both goals. The second goal was a thing of beauty. With the game tied 1-1 in the second half, Quintero dribbled towards the penalty area on a quick counter. With Atlante's Federico Vilar well off his line, Quintero chipped the ball from about 22 yards out over Vilar's head and into the back of the net.

From the start of the tournament, Santos had stated their desire to win the tournament. The team has been dominant at home, having won all five of their home games during the tournament.

Darwin Quintero looked great against Montreal. Another young high level Colombian player.
