Tijuana took the lead but couldn’t hold it as Querétaro came back for a 1-1 draw. The result keeps the Xolos winless in two, but unbeaten at home this season, while the Gallos Blancos remain winless in four.
The hosts took the lead early on. In the 12th minute, Miler Bolaños sent a pinpoint cross into the box for Fabián Castillo, whose header beat Tiago Volpi to make it 1-0 for the Xolos.
Tijuana had a good chance to add to their lead in the 21st minute, when disorder in Querétaro’s defense gave them a clear opportunity, but Bolaños and Erick Torres couldn’t capitalize on the chance.
Then Volpi made a great save on José Rivero as Tijuana continued to press for a second goal. Tested throughout the half, the netminder was able to keep Tijuana’s lead to just one, and in doing so, keep Querétaro in the game.
In the second half, the Gallos Blancos earned a penalty kick and Camilo Sanvezzo stepped up and buried it to tie the game 1-1 in the 62nd minute.
With the scoreline level, the game became a back-and-forth affair as both teams looked for a winner, but in the end neither one was able to break the deadlock as Tijuana and Querétaro had to settle for a share of the spoils.
With the 1-1 draw, Tijuana and Querétaro both reach 16 points.
