NICK LEYDEN - Monday, April 16, 2012
Diego Chávarri started and played 63 minutes for his new team but could not prevent Cobresol from suffering yet another defeat.
The American earned the start in what was just his second game for Cobresol, who are dead-last in the Peruvian top flight, after completing the move from Sporting Cristal two weeks ago.
The versatile winger was replaced by Israel Tordoya in the 63rd minute with the score still deadlocked at zero, but two late goals by Andy Pando in the 84th and 90th minutes handed Real Garcilaso the victory.
The win moved the hosts to a surprising second place in the Peruvian standings in their first ever season in the top division.
Cobresol, on the other hand, continue to struggle mightily.
Chávarri and crew find themselves in last place in the Peruvian Primera Division, having won just a single game in the season's opening eight weeks.
Cobresol will look to right the ship on Sunday when San Martin visits Moquegua.
