Barca attack picking up steam

El Nacional's title overshadowed by brawl

QUITO, Dec 17 (Reuters) - El Nacional won the Ecuadorean championship for the second time in a row on Sunday but an ugly brawl at the end of another match overshadowed the celebrations.

Barcelona midfielder Leonardo Soledispa was taken to hospital after being injured during the melee which followed his team's 1-1 draw at LDU, a result which ended LDU's title hopes.

The Ecuadorean Football Federation (FEF) said on its Web site that Soledispa was kicked while he was on the ground during the brawl, which it described as a 'true sporting disgrace'.

Media reports said that trouble started with an incident involving two players just before the end and escalated as soon as the final whistle sounded.

LDU pair Carlos Espinola and Agustin Delgado were reported to be at the centre of the trouble.

LDU went ahead through Paul Ambrossi but Barcelona equalised through Nicolas Ascencio 12 minutes from time despite having Alexis Bolano sent off nine minutes earlier.

LDU finished third in the final stage of the marathon championship with 16 points from 10 games, three behind army club El Nacional who clinched the title with a 0-0 draw at Olmedo.

El Nacional won the title for the 13th time, equalling the record held by Barcelona.

Argentine forward Luis Miguel Escalada, the championship's top scorer, took his final tally to 29 goals by scoring twice in Emelec's 4-0 win over Deportivo Quito.

Jorge Ladines and Cristian Noboa shared the other goals for the Electrics, who moved ahead of LDU to finish second with 17 points.
