Chivas 3-1 Coras FC

The Apertura 2014 edition of Copa MX kicked off this week. The Mexican cup competition offered some first division teams like Chivas, Monterrey and Tigres UANL the opportunity to build winning streaks; while other top flight clubs like Veracruz, Queretaro, and Leones Negros continued their struggles. 


Chivas 3-1 Coras Tepic 


Chivas of Guadalajara forgot that they had goal scoring problems against the second division club from the state of Nayarit. The Rebaño Sagrado held a 2-0 lead that the halftime break and improved it to 3-0 off of a Carlos Fierro golazo. With the three points already in their opponent's bag, the Ascenso MX side were able to pick up a goal for honor making the score 3-1. 


Tijuana Xolos 3-1 Zacatepec 


Club Tijuana managed their firs win of the season. Manager Cesar Farias sent out a strong starting XI leaving a clear message that Xolos would be taking the competition seriously. The team's lone goal of season came via a penalty kick, but Tijuana was able to get their offensive weapons firing. Dayro Moreno set up Benedetto for the first goal of the night. Joe Corona and Martin Henry added one each to give Xolos the win. 


Correcaminos 1-5 Monterrey 


Monterrey continued their perfect march in all competitions with a commanding five goal performance. Dorlan Pabon - who scored the game winning goal against Pachuca last weekend - once again found the back of the net. The Cup competition has only allowed Monterrey the opportunity to continue to build up momentum early on in the season.
