Costa Rica Primera Division wrap: Herediano extend lead

By Football News



Herediano extended their lead atop the Costa Rican Primera Division with victory over San Carlos, while Deportivo Saprissa jumped to third.

Marvin Solano's Herediano side registered a 2-0 win courtesy of first-half goals from Cristian Montero and Ismael Gomez against the league's cellar-dwellers on Saturday.

Herediano are four points clear at the summit following Cartagines' 3-2 defeat to Belen Siglo XXI on Sunday.

Deportivo Saprissa leapfrogged Perez Zeledon into third thanks to their narrow 1-0 victory over Carmelita.

Perez Zeledon slipped to fourth, two points adrift of Saprissa, after they were held to a 1-1 draw by Santos de Guapiles on Saturday.

On Sunday, defending champions Alajuelense accounted for Puntarenas 2-0, while Limon edged Uruguay 2-1 at the Estadio Juan Goban.
