Gringo Report: Ponce's Chivas fall at home

Mexican Primera División

Estudiantes 2, Pumas UNAM 2

Estudiantes scored an 85th-minute goal to earn a home tie and climb out of last place and into fifth in Group 1.

Pumas had turned around a one-goal deficit and took the 2-1 lead late into the second half. However, they were reduced to 10 men after a red card and Estudiantes didn’t waste the advantage given to press for the equalizer.

Estudiantes striker Samuel Ochoa came on as a second half substitute for the final seven minutes of play.

San Luis 1, Pachuca 0

Pachuca’s troubled season continues as they dropped yet another match to reach a seven-game winless streak. San Luis, on the other hand, nabbed their third straight win.

Los Gladiadores went ahead in the ninth minute and stifled los Tuzos’ attack to hold the lead.

Marco Vidal played the entire match for Pachuca, while teammates Hérculez Gómez and José Francisco Torres came on as subs in the 46th and 71st minutes, respectively.

San Luis’ Edgar Castillo didn’t dress for the game.

Chivas 0, Jaguares 3

Jaguares added two injury-time goals in the second half to down Chivas and grab their second win of the season.

Chivas were completely outplayed and the attack suffered, especially after having a forward and a midfielder ejected in the first and second halves, respectively.

Miguel Ángel Ponce played the entire match at left back for Guadalajara, while fellow American and Jaguares midfielder Francisco Javier Torres wasn’t in his club’s 18-man roster.

Atlante 2, Morelia 0

Midfielder Sonny Guadarrama didn’t make Atlante’s bench as they got a surprising and important win against Morelia.

Toluca 2, América 1

América pulled even early in the second half but couldn’t keep los Diablos Rojos’ superior play from shining through for the victory. Azulcrema midfielder Isaac Acuña didn’t dress.

Mexican Liga de Ascenso

León 3, Dorados 0

Midway through the campaign, los Panzas Verdes routed Dorados to get their first win. Unfortunately for forward Víctor Sánchez García, he wasn’t in Léon’s roster.

Tijuana 1, Lobos BUAP 1

Tijuana, with American midfielder Joe Benny Corona in the starting lineup, completely dominated Lobos before the visitors got a lucky break and, in second half injury time, equalized via a free kick.

Corona nearly gave Tijuana a 2-0 lead in the first, but his shot was stopped by the opposing 'keeper.

Nevertheless, the draw was good enough to make Tijuana the sole leader of the 18-team table.

Indios 1, Correcaminos 2

Juárez failed to keep pace with the top teams of the campaign, suffering their second consecutive defeat as 17th-place Correcaminos rendered the surprise. Indios’ Joaquín Alonso didn’t dress for the match.

Argentine Primera División

All Boys 2, Estudiantes de La Plata 1

Los Pincharratas lost their unbeaten status as All Boys put in a full effort at home to knock the kings off their throne. Estudiantes midfielder Michael Hoyos wasn’t considered for the match.
