León 1, Querétaro 1: Querétaro’s Melissa Arredondo scored off of a header in the 22nd minute but Michelle González scored a header of her own off of a corner kick in the 36th as León and Querétaro drew at the Nou Camp in León.

Atlas 1, Tigres UANL 1: Tigres’ Christian Jaramillo gave Tigres the lead in the second minute on a close range shot, but Atlas’ Fátima Delgado’s arcing looper beat Alejandra Gutierrez to salvage a 1-1 draw for Atlas, who are currently in the fourth and final Liguilla spot in Group 2.

Monterrey 5, Monarcas Morelia 0: Diana Evangelista scored her seventh goal of the season giving her sole possession of the Liga MX Femenil lead as Monterrey crushed Monarcas 5-0 at El Barrial. Alicia Cervantes had a brace and Mónica Monsiváis got her fourth of the season, while Monarcas’ Eleisa Santos had the misfortune of an own goal. You can watch the entire game here, or check out the highlights below.

Lobos BUAP 0, Puebla 2: Puebla came out on top of the latest Clásico Poblano thanks to a penalty panenka by Nayeli Pérez and a header in stoppage time by Mariela Jiménez. Karla Morales made one save in her fifth shutout in eleven matches.

Club América 3, Cruz Azul 0: Goals from Marylin Díaz, Lucero Cuevas, and Betzy Cuevas saw Club América win the Clásico Joven match against Cruz Azul. Maricruz González made one save to retain the clean sheet in her first game of the season. Lucero Cuevas however suffered a serious injury from a blow to the head at the end of the match, although no replays of the incident are readily available. Cuevas tweeted out that she was ok, a CT scan revealing that there weren’t any “anomalies”. We wish Lucero a speedy recovery.

Veracruz 0, Pumas UNAM 3: Karime Abud had a pair of headers and Diana Gómez scored her first goal of the season as Pumas downed Veracruz 3-0. Goalkeeper Melany Villeda recorded her fifth shutout in nine games. Pumas are currently fourth in Group 1 with a game in hand against Toluca and América and two games in hand on Pachuca.

Pachuca 1, Club Tijuana 0: Cynthia Rodríguez’ first goal of the season was all it took for Pachuca to down Xolos Femenil 1-0. Alejandria Godínez got her fifth shutout in ten games, needing just one save on the evening.

Santos Laguna 1, Chivas 3: Kristal Soto’s brace and Arlett Tovar’s third goal of the season saw Chivas down Santos Laguna 3-1 in Torreón. Yahaira Flores scored Santos’ lone goal on a penalty.

Next week:

While the clubs have a week off thanks to the international break, the UNAM Pumas vs. Puebla match that was postponed due to severe weather in Week 9 will be continued on October 6. The match will pick up in the 33rd minute where the last match left off, with Puebla having used a sub and re-starting the match with a throw-in.
