Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - The young soccer players who are representing Puerto Vallarta in the 2019 Jalisco Cup are doing our city proud, winning their first two matches in the first phase of the most important amateur soccer tournament in the state.
The first phase of the tournament is played by region. Puerto Vallarta is now playing against other teams in the Costa-Sierra region. Each team is making reciprocal visits to their opponents' home field, competing for their spot in the Jalisco Cup's second phase.
In the first regional match, played on June 1, our local athletes challenged the Talpa de Allende team on the Colonia La Mesa field in their adversaries' municipality, and beat the home team with a score of 3-0.
The second regional soccer match, played on June 9 at the Agustín Flores Contreras Municipal Sports Stadium, gave the Puerto Vallarta team a home field advantage over the team from Guachinango, and our boys emerged victorious with a final score of 8-0.
This Saturday, June 15, our local team will once again have home field advantage as they compete against the visiting team from the municipality of San Sebastián del Oeste on soccer field #1 at the Agustín Flores Contreras stadium.
The game begins at 3:30 pm, and the director of Comude Puerto Vallarta, José Amador Hernández Madrigal, invites everyone to come out and support our local team.
In the second phase of the tournament a total of 32 Costa-Sierra teams will face rivals from other regions of Jalisco in their quest to make it to the grand finale, a single game to be played at Estadio Jalisco in Guadalajara on September 22, whose winner will be named the 2019 Jalisco Cup champions.Source: puertovallarta.gob.mx
