San Pedro Suffers Defeat in Loja

San Pedro fell in Loja this round. UD San Pedro concluded a horrific February with their third loss in four matches this Sunday. The red and black team lost during their visit to Loja CD, a match where they started with some opportunities but the goal from Loja halfway through the first half set the game on track for the locals. San Pedro drops to third place.

Third Loss in Four Matches for San Pedro

This is the third loss in four matches for San Pedro in February. Rafael Escobar’s team has failed to recover in a month that began with a home defeat against Berja, followed by a thrashing on the field of Alhaurín de la Torre, and ending with a loss during their visit to Loja CD. The Granada team also didn’t arrive at the match in their best form after a poor defensive display against Mijas Las Lagunas a week ago.

Missed Opportunities for San Pedro

The match didn’t start badly for San Pedro, who had two clear goal opportunities, one from Sumaila and the next for Jesús Díaz. Neither managed to beat the local goalkeeper, who kept his team alive. From there, Loja began to grow in the match, wanting ball possession and starting to create danger on Reina’s goal, who had to prevent the first goal from the locals in the 21st minute.

Loja Takes Control of the Match

However, Loja didn’t slow down and minutes later Diego Gámiz managed to score the 1-0 that began to make the match very uphill for San Pedro. After half an hour of the match, Yépes pulled off a fantastic shot from outside the area to beat Reina and score the second for his team. With a two-goal lead, the red and blacks went to halftime.

San Pedro Struggles in Second Half

San Pedro had to come out with a lot of intensity to try to turn the match around in the second half, but Loja was good in defense, not giving anything to a San Pedro that barely managed to get close with danger. In fact, Reina had to intervene to prevent the third goal from the locals with a good low save.

San Pedro Falls to Third Place

In the final minutes, the third goal could have even arrived from Loja, who finally won 2-0 and caused San Pedro to fall to third place in the standings. It’s time to forget the bad month of February and think about the next match against Casabermeja.
