Izaguirre then joined with a hat-trick and the match was played in one direction from the devastating performance of those led by Capelli.
The only moment the party entered a long silence for Aguada was when, eight minutes into the second quarter, Garcia Morales fell to the ground and pulled his left knee, accusing him of pain that he was not allowed to stand. The player left the field walking with difficulty. He did not return to the stadium until the end of the match.
The first half ended in Aguada 60-28.

Without Leandro, without Pereira and hoping to reach 40 minutes
With the advantage he had achieved in the first minutes, Aguada no longer had problems managing the game as he would like, even with hampered play without García Morales (who retired from the injury in the second half) and Pereiras. He did not enter the latter because he was not in his best physical condition. He was seen training on a physical bike to remain active in case he needed to get in. In the second half, Pereeras got off the bike next to the alternate bench and sat with his teammates to watch his team win as the privileged spectators of the first row.
The third quarter ended with an Agwada 76-49 victory.
The match ended in victory for Agwada 91-72.
