Osorio's hat trick leads San Martin to first win

Buenos Aires, Argentina (Sports Network) - Humberto Osorio scored a hat trick as San Martin claimed its first victory of the season, a 6-1 thrashing of Boca Juniors.

After opening the campaign on a winless run of seven games, San Martin hammered Boca behind three goals from Osorio, while Jorge Luna, Lucas Landa and Sebastian Penco each chipped in a goal apiece.

The lone reply from Boca came through Santiago Silva, who converted a penalty kick in the 38th minute.

Osorio opened the scoring just two minutes into the contest, and with his team leading 3-1, he tallied his second goal just before the break to stretch the lead to three goals.

Osorio then completed his hat trick nine minutes after the break, extending Boca's winless streak to eight games.

Lanus remained on top of the league and unbeaten as Silvio Romero scored in the 90th minute of a 2-1 win over All Boys, while Newell's kept pace with a 3-1 home victory over Tigre, leaving the club two points adrift of Lanus.

River Plate and Arsenal played out a 1-1 draw in a battle of top-four sides after trading goals in the first 20 minutes, Bruno Urribarri and Facundo Curuchet scored second-half goals in a 2-1 Colon win over Velez Sarsfield and Estudiantes finished in a 0-0 draw with Godoy Cruz in Sunday's other contest.

The two games on Friday both finished in draws as Argentinos Juniors and Atletico Rafaela ended 0-0, while Union got a goal from Brahian Aleman 10 minutes from time to salvage a 1-1 draw at Independiente.

Racing toppled San Lorenzo, 4-1, on Saturday behind two goals from Bruno Zuculini, and on Monday, Belgrano earned a 3-0 victory over Quilmes to see the two sides go level in the table on 13 points apiece.
