Santa Fe won their first league title in 37 years after a 1-0 victory over Deportivo Pasto in the Liga Postobon play-off final.
Jonathan Copete nodded home the game’s only goal to hand the Colombian championship to the Bogota side for the time since 1975.
The crucial strike 20 minutes from time sent the home side’s long-suffering fans wild and added a seventh championship star to the Santa Fe badge.
And it was wing wizard Copete who was the difference between the two sides.
In what was probably the 24-year-old’s final game in red before he departs for Argentine side Velez Sarsfield, the speed merchant put in a masterful performance to finally unlock a stubborn Pasto defence.
With the tie drifting to penalties and with frustration building around the El Campin stadium, Copete lost his marker at the back post to connect with an Omar Perez free kick and find the bottom corner of the goal.
After the midweek first-leg in Pasto had ended level, the goal swung the tie in Santa Fe’s favour and delivered a memorable championship victory for Wilson Gutierrez’s side.
