It was in Bahía Blanca, where Germinal de Rawson beat Independiente de San Cayetano 3-1. The match was suspended. Look at the video.

There is a tournament that, contrary to the rest of Argentine football, is in full definition... and boiling.


Regional Amateur

, which gives places to the teams from the Interior in

Federal A

(Third Division of AFA) lives an

escalation of violence

that had another episode this Sunday:

a fan of Independiente de San Cayetano entered the field in Bahía Blanca to assaulting the referee

, who was rescued by his assistants, and then fled the field of play while players from the same team chased him.

It was one of the four finals that this Sunday determined the four promotions to the most important tournament organized by the Federal Council, the apex of the AFA that organizes the championships of the Interior of the country.

A couple of weeks ago, in the semifinals of this same championship, chaos broke out in the rematch between Villa Krause de San Juan and San Martín de Mendoza, who qualified on goal difference.

The locals attacked their rivals, attacked the referees with shoves, pineapples and insults while they tried to defend themselves as best they could and ended up facing off with the Police, who tried to protect the arbitration team, where there was a woman


In fact, the linesman

Leila Argañaraz

tried to defend herself by hitting 'shovels' with the flag that is used to penalize advanced positions.

The one who suffered the worst part was

Mauricio Martín

(a soccer player hit him on the neck from behind), while José Ponce and Rodrigo Ballestero, who completed the quartet of judges, also received attacks.

This Sunday, the explosion appeared after Germinal's third goal, since during the celebration, the substitutes of Independiente de San Cayetano, who were warming up on one side, went to reproach him for having dedicated them to their face .

They were 27 minutes into the second half.

The situation escalated, involving teams and technical staff from both institutions, until the focus of the conflict reached the referees.

The Police tried to stop the different points of aggression, until a fan jumped over the fence, entered the field and at full speed was able to reach the judge Lucas Gómez.

The refereeing quartet escaped through the access tunnel while the local players ran them and, obviously, suspended the match.

The Germinal players were left celebrating on the playing field, although we will have to wait for the decision of the Disciplinary Tribunal.

Linqueño de Lincoln (defeated San Martín de Mendoza), Sportivo Atenas de Río Cuarto (beat 9 de Julio de Rafaela) and Sol de América de Formosa (beat Camioneros Argentino del Norte de Salta) are the others promoted to Federal a.
