In the following minutes the university students suffered from the poor aim of Malcorra. In 36 he fired from outside and in 58 he executed a penalty, stopped by goalkeeper Ivan Vazquez Mellado, in one of his best afternoons of the season.

In 65, Esquivel converted an elegant long-distance goal and rescued the tie for Juarez, who planted well and endured the cascading offense that the university undertook in the finals.
Vazquez Mellado a ball almost from the net, shot by Martin Barragan and was left with one of Mora who was going for goal, to which added shots to the crossbar of Barragan and Kevin Escamilla.
Recovered from the attacks, Juarez was close to winning in 96 when Brazilian Leandro Carrijo received a pass and finished off right to the post.
