Four minutes from the half-time break, the hosts doubled the lead in the contest courtesy of Jennifer Santiago Luengo’s effort.

After the restart, the visitors started the bid for a comeback when Okene rose to the moment to pull one back for Jose Antonio Contreras Gonzalez’s side in the 62nd minute.
