RECAP: WEEKEND MEXICAN ACTION
RECAPS
EXTRA TIME
WOODY BAUM - Sunday, October 24, 2010
Jose Francisco Torres was a second half sub for Pachuca whose loss to Jaguares seemingly puts their playoff hopes appear out of reach, while Sammy Ochoa was unable to lift Estudiantes past Queretaro.

Queretaro 1 0 Estudiantes

Estudiantes fell to Queretaro on Saturday in a game that has few implications for the Guadalajaran team, as they are neither fighting relegation nor looking for a playoff spot.

Sammy Ochoa was not in the starting lineup but entered the game in the 46th minute.

He was unable to provide the spark necessary to give his team the tying goal.

Queretaro scored in the 67th minute, when after a turnover in the midfield, Jose Aceves passed the ball to a streaking Sergio Blanco behind the defensive line who calmly lofted the ball over the keeper.

Estudiantes was unable to generate much offense afterward and had to settle for the loss.

Estudiantes will host Necaxa next Saturday.

Jaguares 2 0 Pachuca

Pachuca's playoff hopes suffered a huge blow when they fell to Jaguares in Chiapas on Saturday.

Jaguares scored first in the 34th minute, when Danilinho, after receiving a through pass, managed to cross the ball to the far post, where a streaking and unmarked Jorge Rodriguez only had to tap the ball into an open net to score.

Jose Francisco Torres entered the game in the 61st minute, but to no avail as Jaguares scored again in the 75th minute.

It was Danilinho again with the assist as he received a pass in the area and passed back to an unmarked Jackson Martinez who shot on the first touch past Pachuca goalkeeper Carlos Velasquez.

Both Marco Vidal and Herculez Gomez did not play.

With the loss, Pachuca's playoff possibilities are in doubt.

They will host Tigres next Friday in Hidalgo.

Notes

Edgar Castillo did not play in San Luis' win over Necaxa.

A big question for U.S. fans heading into the World Cup is surely on Jozy Altidore and just what is plaguing the young striker at Sunderland.
