They scored with the injured rival goalkeeper and gave the opponent a goal to make up for what happened. In addition, the communion between city and club is total. At the parties, Bingo revenues were allocated to the entity's growth. and the club itself organized a popular lunch for the locals in collaboration with the city hall.
