A 3-1 away victory over Universidad de Concepción saw Everton return to Chile’s top flight, finishing 4-1 on aggregate.

COLLAO — After taking the championship in 2008, the ruleteros dropped of the pace and fell to the Primera B. The convincing victory saw Everton return to the Primera Divsion after falling at the same hurdle in 2011.

Everton took a 1-0 lead in the opening encounter at Estadio Sausalito and built on their lead, assist by some poor finishing by their opposition. Gabriel Vargas missed a penalty which could have turned the game. A double from José Luis Muñoz helped the oro y cielo to a convincing victory.

The team was given an official welcome in front of the Viña del Mar municipality on Monday.

The club, founded in 1909 and named after the English variety of Everton, received a message of congratulations from their English namesakes.

In the other promotion clash, Cobresal managed to reverse a 3-1 away loss, overcoming Barnehcea 3-0 at home. After beating O’Higgins in the last round of the regular season to avoid direct descent into the Primera B, the mineros managed to hold on once again. The 4-3 aggregate meant Barnechea, who were promoted from the Tercera Division at the end of 2011, would not be able to complete an incredible rise.
