A couple weeks ago I said Leon was dead and out of the playoff picture for this half. I spoke too soon-don’t look now but they have their first winning streak of the tournament with a 4-0 blowout of Veracruz. All the scoring came in the last 20 minutes-Mauro Boselli, back from a 1-game suspension, started the outburst with a 71st minute header, then Elias Hernandez scored in the 81st minute. Right after 3 minutes of second half extra time were announced, Hernandez scored again, then German Cano scored in the second minute of extra time. Leon is still 5 points out of the playoffs but they are finally out of last place for the time being.Veracruz, meanwhile, blew a chance to pull even with Morelia in the demotion race.
