The midfielder calmly knocked the ball over goalkeeper Alfredo Aguilar for the opening goal.
Paraguayan clubs have been instructed to field at least one player younger than 19 to build experience in the country’s top league.
Deportivo Capiata player Kevin Pereira is also 14 and has already debuted in Paraguay’s top league.
