Make up games

Hmm seems that I forgot there were only three scheduled games for this week. If you can remember from my previous post I had said that in the third Jornada a few teams were unable to play each other because they were participating in a different tournament. Well it turned out that they were scheduled to play this weekend and I completely forgot about it. But luckily I was able to watch the first two games that occurred on Friday.

First off we have Tijuana vs Chivas. Now this was going to be an interesting game since Tijuana is currently at risk of getting sent back to the second division due to their lack of wins. So they can into this match determined to win, however Chivas was not going to have that. To start off  Chivas tried to take the lead and around the 39th minute Hector Reynoso scored an incredibly header after receiving a cross from their corner kick. Though his header was meant to be a pass to the far post, it ended up being a goal.  After that goal Chivas seemed to relax a bit and Tijuana  tried to  take advantage of that but were unable to produce much. Tijuana tried and tried but to no avail and Chivas ended up winning 1-0.

The second game was between Jaguares vs Santos. Though i was rooting for Santos to win, I got to admit it turned into a very interesting game. The first half turned out to be a game played in midfield with both teams having few attempts to on goal but with Santos taking the lead with a goal by Jose Cardendas at the 13th minute. But then came the second half, and boy did the game turn up. Jaguares game back ready to take back the game and that's exactly what they did. At the 53rd minute Franco Arizala scored the first goal bringing the game 1-1. After that they scored again at the 56th minute but his time it was Luis Rey who scored. Now that Jaguares was winning they also started to dominate the midfield and keep control of the ball while Santos tried to get themselves together. But Jaguars was not done yet. At the  74th minute Luis Rey scored his second goal bringing the game 3-1 and giving Jaguares an incredibly lead, though this really pissed off Santos and lead them to scoring their second goal thanks to Juan Enriquez. But this was not enough for Santos to take back the game and the when the whistle was blown to signal the end of the game, Jaguares ended up winning 3-2 and giving Jaguares their well deserved three points.

Now there is only one game left for this week but I will be unable to watch it because it is at noon, though I will be sure to post the results of the game between San Luis vs Monarcas. Till tomorrow.
