This time of year, it is rainy season in Mogotes.
Every afternoon around 3pm after a bright and sunny morning, the clouds roll in from behind the mountains. Thunder rumbles. Lightning crashes. At any moment, a downpour will begin.

Wilfredo scored the first goal. Here are some photos from the game:
