America claim Colombian title

America de Cali claimed their 13th domestic title after defeating Independiente Medellin 3-1 in the second leg of the final for a 4-1 aggregate triumph.

Diego Umana's side held the upper hand after winning the first leg 1-0 with a goal scored by Victor Cortes but Medellin got back on level terms in the tie when Diego Alvarez turned in a John Cordoba cross in the 17th minute.

However Gustavo Ramos fired home a powerful effort eight minutes later to restore America's advantage and the lead was extended on the hour when Jose Velez's cross was deflected in off Medellin defender Jamell Ramos.

Jaime Cordoba sealed the result for America with a minute remaining and Medellin's misery was compounded when Omar Perez was sent off in stoppage time.

America's victory means that the Cali side are now tied with Millonarios for the most Colombian championships.
