The Sfintul Gheorghe defense was its own worst enemy on Friday as Christian Camacho's club fell to league leaders Dacia on Friday afternoon at Stadionul CPTF in Chisinau in Moldovan Divizia Nationala action.
Camacho started at his usual attacking midfielding position and went the full 90 minutes.
The match was of paramount importance for both teams, yet for very different reasons.
Dacia are currently atop the standings with 62 points and have been enagaged in a fierce battle for first all season long with 10-time defending champions Sheriff.
Meanwhile Sfintul came into the match dead last with 14 points but earning a draw meant they could push past fellow bottom feeder Gagauziya and out of the relegation zone.
Alas, the task for Camacho and company was too much and Sfintul's sloppy play on defense was their doom.
Babjide Collins scored forst for the league leaders in the 29th sending a bouncing ball through the Sfintul defense and into goal.
Two minutes later Valeri Bugaichuk gifted Dacia another goal when he headed a cross into his own net much to the chagrin of Sfintul goalkeeper Ustin Cerga who could only look quizzically at his defender afterward.
The defensive follies continued into the second half when Dacia's Alexandru Onica was able to score off of a very poor headed clearance by Victor Culai. Onica swept in when Culai's header went wayward and easily nodded home the third goal.
Camacho and company will hope to climb out of the basement on Tuesday when they host Academia UTM.
