Here’s how the final week of the 2018 Apertura played out in Liga MX Femenil play.

Cruz Azul 2, Veracruz 1: Martha Enciso and Itzel Cruz scored for Cruz Azul, who ended their season winning two of their final three games. Veracruz’ Roxana Torres drew one back for Tiburones Rojos, however it was too little, too late as Veracruz lost their third straight.

Necaxa 0, Atlas 4: Adriana Iturbide and Mayra Santana each had a brace as Atlas thrashed Necaxa 4-0. Ana Paz had her seventh shutout of the season as Atlas went unbeaten in their final six games. Necaxa on the other hand have a lot of work to do going into the 2019 Clausura, as they tied for the worst record (1W 4D 11L) and held the worst goal differential (-28) in Liga MX Femenil, scoring just five goals all season.

Monterrey 2, Santos Laguna 0: Mónica Monsiváis took the goalscoring title with her thirteenth goal of the season and Diana Evangelista scored her eighth as Monterrey downed Santos Laguna 2-0. Claudia Lozoya got her sixth shutout of the season as Santos tied Necaxa with the worst record in Liga MX Femenil.

Chivas 1, Querétaro 1: Rebeca Villuendas’ goal in the 59th for Querétaro looked to be the winner for the visitors, but Arlett Tovar converted a late penalty as Chivas salvaged a draw. Chivas limps into the Liguilla having won only one of their final five games, while Querétaro misses out the Liguilla having won once in their final nine.

Toluca 0, Pachuca 1: Estefany Hernández’ goal in the 86th minute to give Pachuca their sixth straight win. Alejandría Godínez’ eighth shutout of the season saw Toluca lose their third of their last four matches at Estadio Nemesio Díez.

Club América 2, Lobos BUAP 1: Goals from Vannya García and Daniela Espinosa in the second and third minutes respectively paved the way for Club América’s 2-1 win over Lobos BUAP. Abagail De Jesús drew one back for the visitors, as their inaugural season ends with a record of 4W 2D 10L.

Puebla 1, UNAM Pumas 1: Mirelle Arciniega put Puebla on the board in the 21st minute when she converted a penalty, however Diana Gómez would get Pumas a draw in the 79th minute.

Monarcas Morelia 1, León 3: A brace from Sanjuana Muñoz and Perla Navarrete’s third goal of the season powered León past Monarcas. Dalia Molina got Morelia’s lone goal as Monarcas lose their third straight at Estadio José María Morelos y Pavón.
