The new coach of Farense, Jorge Costa, debuted today with a tie in the reception to Santa Clara (1-1), in the opening game of the 17th round of the First League of Football, which marks the closing of the first round.
After two balls in the "irons", each one to the side, in the opening minutes, Ryan Gauld opened the asset for the Algarve, in the 40th minute, with a fantastic heel deviation in the small area, after crossing Mansilla.
In the second half, the Azores improved and came to a draw, by Carlos Júnior, who suffered a penalty and converted the "maximum punishment", at 63.
Farense came close to winning the game on two clear opportunities, but Marco, goalkeeper for Santa Clara, stopped the shots by Licá and Pedro Henrique.
The Algarvians close the first lap in the 17th and penultimate place, on condition, with 13 points, receiving Moreirense next Monday, at the start of the second round of the I League.
