Apertura 2017 Week 2 Results: Puebla 1, Morelia 1

Week 2 kicked off tonight with Morelia visiting Puebla, and it was a game where the hosts taketh and the hosts giveth away as Puebla played themselves out of a potential win and into a 1-1 tie. Brayan Angulo gave Puebla the lead with a 9th-minute header goal, but right before halftime gave it away with an OWN GOAL! On a Morelia corner kick in the 45th minute, the ball was kicked in and it hit a standing-still Angulo in the shin and took the unlucky deflection into Puebla’s net. That’s how it ended, making both teams winless through their first 2 games (Puebla has a loss and tie now, Morelia has 2 ties). And on a maybe expected side note, Morelia’s Gabriel Achiller is on pace for, including the accumulation suspension, 16 Amarillas over the 17-game tournament after picking up his 2nd in 2 games. I don’t think even Anselmo Junior could do that.
