Wild finish to the Segunda season as Cordoba are promoted

After a scoreless first leg, Las Palmas carried a 1-0 lead into the 92nd minute at home. At that point fans invaded the pitch, the ref held up play for seven minutes, and after the restart.....Cordoba scored to earn the promotion. Wow.

Congratulations to Cordoba, who managed somehow to draw 1-1 with Las Palmas and go to the Primera, promoted on away goals.

Las Palmas led through a 48th minute goal from Apoño, and missed two fine chances to finish the game off with a second goal.  In the second minute (of three added on) supporters invaded the pitch, and the referee called a halt to the proceedings.

The match began again seven minutes later, with some Las Palmas supporters on the running track around the pitch--their joy turned to sorrow when the islanders' defense fell apart and Ulises Davila prodded home a ball sitting practically on the goal-line, after Mario Barbosa had stopped it with his glove as he was falling away.

Congratulations to Cordoba, who were last in the Primera in 1971-72.
