Limon, Costa Rica.
Alex López was dispatched this Saturday with a tremendous goal with the Alajuelense Sports League that debuted in an overwhelming way beating Santos de Guápiles 1-5 at home on the first day of the 2022 Clausura Tournament in Costa Rica.
The manudos overwhelmed their rival in the Ebal Rodríguez stadium, where the Honduran midfielder demonstrated his punching power with a brutal long-distance whiplash that was impossible for goalkeeper Daniel Cambronero in the 48th minute.

It was difficult for Alajuelense to open the account and they managed it on the brink of half-time through winger Carlos Mora who defined from the right in the area after a good cross from Freddy Góndola.
Then came the great goal from Alex López, when the second part of the match began. The local defense cleared a cross short, Aarón Suárez left it to the catracho who first hit it with a lot of power and nailed it into the bottom of the rival goal.
“How did you hit Alex López, what a piece of goal you scored,” said the game announcer for the spectacular score by the 30-year-old player. “What a goal poem,” he added.
The red and black team put land in the middle with the third goal scored by Johan Venegas at 55′, Freddy Góndola with a header signed the fourth at 60′ and Santos de Guápiles discounted at 83′ with an Olympic goal by Starling Matarrita after a lousy start from Leonel Moreira.
The little hand came in the 85th minute with the penalty goal by Tico striker Doryan Rodríguez, thus closing the rout in a great game of the manudos in the visiting field.
Alex López came on as a substitute in the 73rd minute to make way for rookie Argentinian midfielder Dardo Miloc.
The other Honduran Ángel Tejeda, signed a few days ago by Alajuelense, did not enter the call for this commitment.
