Referee Jorge Baliño was the star of the show as Newell’s fell to defeat away to Huracán on Saturday night.
The winning goal, a spot kick, was the reward given by Baliño to the home side for a foul that was possibly committed on Francisco González, not on Huracán player Guillermo Benítez who fell to the ground after initiating contact with Panchito.
Matías Cóccaro tucked it away to put El Globo ahead but it wasn’t the only flashpoint in the match. Guillermo Balzi suffered a kick to the face that went unpunished and although Huracán were reduced to 10 men by Baliño in injury-time, it was nowhere near the justice that Newell’s deserved for being persecuted by the officials in this close game.
