The second half started with Glacis dominating but unable to break down a well organised Angels defence with Juan Villada & Jonathan Arroyal dealing with the Glacis attacks with relative ease. Glacis Utd went down to 10 men in the 62nd minute after Jose Maya received a straight red for his last man challenge on Salvador Delgado.
