Pachuca Wins Liga MX Femenil Cup

Pachuca won the inaugural Liga MX Femenil cup competition with a comprehensive 9-1 thrashing of Tijuana. The scoreline is especially impressive given that the Torneo de Copa featured shorter games, with 35- rather than 45-minute halves.

The Xolas had not conceded a single goal during the three-game group stage, but it took the Tuzas just two minutes to find the breakthrough here. Berenice Muñoz scored almost as soon as the game began by tapping in a low cross, and Pachuca added to their lead just minutes later when Yamile Franco converted a penalty kick to make it 2-0 in the 6th minute.

The onslaught continued, with Diana García finishing off a cross in the 17th minute before Muñoz scored her second of the afternoon in the 20th.

Moments before halftime, Inglis Hernández pulled a goal back for Tijuana to make it 4-1 going into the break.

But Pachuca couldn’t be stopped. Mónica Ocampo scored direct from a free kick in the 36th minute, just one minute after play resumed, and then she scored a second in the 40th to make it 6-1.

Yamile Franco then scored her second in the 43rd before Berenice Muñoz completed her hat-trick in in the 50th minute. Lizbeth Ángeles wrapped up the scoring in the 65th to make the final score Pachuca 9, Tijuana 1.
