Mexico City, Mexico (Sports Network) – After draws in its first three games to
start the league campaign, Jaguares found its way into the win column on
Saturday as Carlos Ochoa scored twice in a 4-2 home victory over Puebla.

All six goals in the match were scored in the final 40 minutes with Ochoa
starting the binge in the 50th minute.

An own goal from Puebla’s Diego de Buen four minutes later doubled the lead
for the hosts before Alfredo Moreno pulled a goal back in the 56th.

Ochoa found the net for the second time on the hour mark and Lucas Viatri
converted a penalty kick to make it 4-1 to Jaguares before Moreno scored a
consolation goal for his side one minute later.

Veracruz continued its strong start to the season with a 3-2 triumph over Cruz
Azul behind two goals from Angel Reyna, who has already scored six times in
the opening four games.

The win keeps Veracruz on top of the league with 10 points, while Morelia sits
in second place with nine points after a 2-1 win against Tijuana. Hector
Mancilla scored both goals for Morelia, which had to play the final 35 minutes
with 10 men after Rodrigo Dorantes was sent off.
