Another fun week in the books for Liga MX Femenil, with some teams starting to stand out from the pack.

León 1, Tigres 3: María Elizondo scored her league leading third goal of the season to lead Tigres to the 3-1 victory over León.

Alison González and Jazmín Enrigue also scored for Tigres while Sanjuana Muñoz got the consolation goal for the hosts deep in stoppage time.

Atlas 0, Chivas 2: Chivas extended their dominance of the Clásico Tapatío thanks to goals by Kristal Soto and Brenda Viramontes.

La Rebaño Sagrado is 2W 1D 0L all time against Atlas.

Monterrey 4, Necaxa 0: Rayadas scored four in the first half and cruised to a 4-0 victory over Necaxa. Norali Armenta, Diana Evangelista, Daniela Solís, and Alicia Cervantes all tallied for Monterrey in their first match of the season. Necaxa has yet to score in the 2018 Apertura.

Lobos BUAP 4, Cruz Azul 3: A wild one in Puebla as hosts Lobos BUAP hang on to down Cruz Azul. Brenda León got the scoring started for Lobos BUAP on a fluky goal that hit off of a defender. Gloria Narváez would double the lead in the 23rd minute off of a header. Flor Rodríguez would put Cruz Azul on the board in the 40th when she pounced on a rebound that Reyna Pozo could not control. Abigail De Jesús would get Lobos’ third of the afternoon in the 51st off of a fantastic cross by Narváez.

Narváez would get her second of the afternoon in the 85th minute on a hard hit shot from 10 yards out to give Lobos BUAP the 4-1 lead. Cruz Azul would mount a charge, with Liliana Godoy getting one off of a rebound in the 90th and Flor Rodríguez hitting a rocket from the top corner of the box to get within one of the hosts, but time would run out with debutantes Lobos BUAP picking up their first ever win.

Veracruz 1, Tijuana 1: Xolos lead for most of the game on an Inglis Hernández goal in the sixth minute, but a Wendy Morales golazo in the 85th minute would tie it up for Tiburones Rojos. Xolos goalkeeper Itzel González made several key saves to keep Xolos Femenil in the game.

Pachuca 2, Puebla 1: Yaritzi Rodríguez had a golazo in the 20th minute as Pachuca defeated Puebla 2-1. Lizbeth Ángeles also scored for Pachuca, while Mirelle Arciniega drew one back for Puebla in the 84th minute.

Club América 2, Toluca 1: Diana González scored from almost the halfway line as América downed Toluca 2-1 at the Estadio Azteca. Betzy Cuevas scored early for América while Alejandra Zaragoza got the late tally for Las Diablas Rojos.

Club Santos 2, Monarcas Morelia 1: Brenda Guevara got Santos on the board in the third minute, but a second yellow card to Yahaira Flores in the 90th minute lead to the tying goal by Maria Cruzaley - a fantastic chilena at the death.
