    PANAMA CITY, Panama – Panama international Felipe Baloy scored in the second minute of second-half stoppage time to give host Tauro (4W-2D-0L, 14 points) a 1-1 draw with Alianza FC in the 2017 Panamanian Clausura on Sunday at the Estadio Rommel Fernandez.

    It was the defender’s second goal in three game since returning to his native country to continue his club career. Cesar Medina put the visitor ahead in the 71st minute with his 128th career goal in Panamanian football.

    The draw kept first-place Tauro unbeaten after six rounds of play, giving it a three-point advantage over second-place Sporting San Miguelito (3-2-1, 11, GD+4) and Atletico Veraguense (3-2-1, 11, GD+1).

    Baloy, 35, also netted in a 3-1 win over Chorrillo FC on February 4.
