Ponte book place in the Paulista finals
The team from Campinas already had a one goal advantage from the first leg and a draw in the estádio Dário Leite would have been enough for Sérgio Guede’s men.
But when Nenê struck for Guaratinguetá, the home side were back in the driving seat.
Moments later Luís Ricardo equalised and the game swung back to Ponte.
Guaratinguetá though had a golden chance to go back in front when Alessandro dived in the area. But former Ponte player, Michael, had his shot stopped by Aranha, who was once again the man of the match.
The second-half started brightly for Ponte until Eduardo Arroz was silly enough to pick up two quick yellows.
With just about his first touch, the 19 year old received the ball inside the area and fired home to ensure Ponte would be in the finals.
Ponte have made it to the final phase on three occasions in their 107 year history but lost all of them.

Ponte’s opponents will be either Palmeiras or São Paulo who meet in the estádio Palestra Itália on Sunday.
