Alajuelense earned a national title Sunday after defeating Herediano, 4-3, on penalty kicks in the final of the 2010 winter season at Alajuelense’s Alejandro Morera Soto Stadium.
The home needed a goal in the 89th minute to tie the game and send it to overtime. Herediano took the lead three minutes into extra time in the first half. However, the team could not hold on to win its first title in 17 years.
