Lobos BUAP earned their first victory in the first division in style with a comprehensive 0-4 away win against Querétaro. The win keeps the licántropos unbeaten in the Apertura season, while the Gallos Blancos have now suffered their first loss.
After a few chances at either end, Lobos opened the scoring in the 27th minute as Julian Quiñones headed home his second goal of the season to make it 0-1 for the visitors.
Querétaro made two halftime substitutions in reaction to the adverse scoreline, but the changes didn’t help them on the field as Lobos began to run up the score.
In the 59th minute, Francisco Rodríguez finished off a free kick from Juan Carlos Medina to make it 0-2; five minutes after that, Medina himself got on the scoreboard with his shot from inside the box to make it 0-3.
Querétaro had a golden opportunity to reduce the deficit in the 72nd minute after Lucero Álvarez was called for a foul on Camilo Sanvezzo in the box, giving the hosts a penalty kick. However, Álvarez atoned for giving up the foul by saving Sanvezzo’s spot kick to maintain Lobos’ three-goal lead.
The goalkeeper suffered an injury late on after a collision with Everaldo Stum, and he had to leave the game with what could be a broken cheekbone. Lobos had used all of their subs at that point, so Julian Quiñones took the gloves and finished the game in goal.
Despite playing a man down and with a makeshift goalkeeper, Lobos were still able to add to their lead with Diego Jiménez scoring late in stoppage time to make it 0-4.
With the 0-4 win, Lobos reach four points while Querétaro still has three.
