Players on Juventud Unida thought they had an easy empty-net goal after Defensores de Belgrano's goalie failed to clear the ball. The goalie was far from his net and tried to kick the ball down the field.
Instead, the ball hit a player on Juventud Unida who was standing in front of the goalie. He quickly kicked the ball toward the net for what he thought would be an easy goal.
But, just before the ball crossed the goal line, a stray dog ran across the field and stopped the shot, leaving the hometown crowd and the players stunned.
In the end, the puppy's miraculous save did not alter the outcome of the game, which Juventud Unida won easily by a score of 3-0.
