Clausura 2017 Round 9 Results: Cruz Azul 2, Jaguares 0

A rather small-looking crows at Estadio Azul saw a rare occurrence this tournament, a Cruz Azul win as the hosts used a quick scoring duo to take a 2-0 win over Jaguares. Angel Mena scored in the 64th minute on a very long-range shot from at least 1/3 range beyond the box, then only a minute later Joao Rojas scored on a shot from the left side of the goal, which was at a very ridiculous angle-almost parallel to the back line and he somehow put it just inside the right goal post! Unfortunately for Rojas he lived up to his last name in a bad way in the 84th minute, drawing a Rojas! HE GONE! He picked up his second of 2 Amarillas meaning he cost himself a game next week.
