The history and the blessing of Sile Junco were allies this time from Matanzas and after repeatedly stroking the title of Cuba, this year the Crocodiles were crowned champions by beating Camagüey 11 races for 2.
The sixth game of this final of the Cuban ball was the most tense of the play off, because the pressure of each set for the victory was added the presence of the rain in Candido González, which delayed the start of the match.
Miguel Borroto’s Bulls relied again on the arm of Yosimar Cousin, who at the opening of the match received a homer from César Prieto, who placed Matanzas ahead on the scoreboard.
The second of the Crocodiles came in the next chapter with home run by Erisbel Arruebarruena, who in these finals was going through his worst offensive moment and responded to the confidence of Armando Ferrer, refused to remove him from the line- up.
Noelvis Entenza in his best start during the Series, ninth appearance in play off, was an executioner with the locals and only allowed 2 runs to sentence the victory of Matanzas at the height of the 8th inning.
With this victory the Crocodiles give a trophy to their people after 29 years, they also reissue the feat of 1991 when they beat the Agramontino team in the final of the Cuban ball with the name of Henequeneros.
The Matanzas territory immediately echoed the victory with popular demonstrations in the streets and neighborhoods of several municipalities.
This success outside the Victoria de Girón stadium does not obscure the happiness of every fan who has trusted the team until now. Now the vertical bites, the compass of the conga and even the balloons unused last Thursday before an attendance of 25 thousand people become more relevant.
Our Crocodiles were not second, as years ago, they took the claw at the right time. All debts are forgiven, because Matanzas again feels Champion in the biggest sports show in Cuba.
