Stone throwing fans in Chile; Aspirilla sighting in Colombia

CHILE

Protesting Universidad de Chile fans threw stones onto the field, interrupting the game for five minutes, as their team were beaten 2-1 at home to Huachipato on Sunday, their second successive defeat.

Media reports said that a photographer was injured in the protests after being hit by a stone.

Huachipato striker Francisco Hernandez pounced on a blunder by goalkeeper Manuel Pinto to open the scoring in the 11th minute and struck again on the hour.

Nelson Pinto pulled a goal back for the home team but it came too late to spare them the wrath of their supporters.

Champions Cobreloa recovered from last week's shock 4-1 defeat at San Felipe and beat eight-man Wanderers 3-1. Their opponents had Mauricio Rojas, Jorge Ormeno and coach Yuri Fernandez sent off in the second half.

Jaime Gonzalez fired Cobreloa ahead in the 15th minute and Argentine midfielder Jose Luis Diaz gave the Desert Foxes a 2-0 halftime lead after converting a penalty. Elthon Troncoso pulled a goal back before Mauricio Dinamarca grabbed Cobreloa's third.

Uruguayan striker Gustavo Biscayzacu hit a hat-trick as Union Espanola trounced San Felipe 4-1 while the game between Universidad Concepcion and Colo Colo, the country's most popular club, was called off following a row over the kickoff time.

Having rescheduled the game once last week at the request of the home side, the football league announced another change on Friday after Colo Colo protested about the new time, on this occasion switching the fixture to September 7.

COLOMBIA

Veteran strikers Hamilton Ricard and Faustino Asprilla both helped provincial side Tulua beat Quindio 1-0 for their second successive win, having started off with five successive defeats.

Although neither was outstanding, Ricard and Asprilla both troubled the visiting defence with Brazilian Marcio Cruz heading the only goal.

Deportivo Cali stayed top with a goalless draw away to Santa Fe while champions Caldas won 1-0 at financially troubled Centauros with a goal from striker Arnulfo Valentierra.

Villavicencio-based Centauros, who are in the top flight for the first time, have complained of the high costs of competing at the top level and say that income is less than expected.

The problem came to a head last Wednesday when players refused to train for a day because they still had not been paid the previous month's wages.

Atletico Junior gave new coach Jorge Luis Pinto a winning start, beating Medellin 1-0 with a goal by Lincarlos Henry.

ECUADOR

Liga de Quito and Deportivo stayed level on points at the top of the second stage of the championship after playing out a goalless draw in front of 35,000 disappointed supporters.

Third-placed Barcelona failed to take advantage as they were held 1-1 away by police club Espoli after conceding a late equaliser.

Argentine midfielder Ruben Capria put the Bullfighters ahead with an individual goal early in the second half but Isaac Mina replied for Espoli with seven minutes to go. Barcelona's Fricson George and Espoli's Alberto Montano were both sent off.

Emelec climbed to fourth place with a 2-1 win over Deportivo Cuenca with goals by Argentine-born striker Carlos Juarez and midfielder Moises Candelario.

PARAGUAY

Libertad and Cerro Porteno stayed neck and neck at the top of the championship's second stage after both winning. Libertad, the defending champions, beat Sportivo San Lorenzo 2-0 and Cerro Porteno overcame Sol de America 1-0.

Olimpia, last year's South American champions, beat Tacuary 4-1, the goals being shared by Francisco Resteche, Miguel Benitez, Sergio Orteman and Mauro Caballero.
