Gustavo Alfaro’s, Arsenal got their first win of the season over newly promoted Olimpo in Sarandi last night. A quick-fire double before half time took advantage of Olimpo’s defensive frailties and set Arsenal on the way to victory. First, Ramiro Carrera finished off a fine move and then minutes later, Julio Furch smashed home a rebound to give a two goal cushion at the break. Olimpo looked to set up a lively ending as pressure from a set piece forced a Ivan Marcone own goal but Damian Perez ensured victory in stoppage time with a superb run and curling shot from 30 yards. Olimpo are still waiting for their first win and will need to get up and running soon enough if they are to avoid being caught in the relegation tussle. Later, Colon also got their first win of the season thanks to a second half penalty from Ruben Ramirez. The 1-0 win over Quilmes was not a classic but comes as a relief for Colon.
