Lobos BUAP got back to winning ways with a 3-1 victory against 10-man Querétaro. The result snaps a four-game winless streak for the Licántropos, while the Gallos Blancos suffered their seventh straight loss as they remain the only team not to register a single point in the Clausura 2019.
The game started off well for the visitors before going rather precipitously downhill. Querétaro took the lead in the 10th minute when Ayron del Valle’s shot from outside the box beat Toño Rodríguez to make it 0-1.
But Lobos soon responded, with Michaell Chirinos also scoring a goal from distance to tie the game 1-1 in the 24th minute.
A minute after that, Querétaro defender Luis Romo had to be subbed out with an injury; then, in the 38th minute, they went down to 10 men as Víctor Milke was given a straight red card for dangerous play after kicking Chirinos in the face as he attempted to contest the ball.
Lobos dominated with the extra man and Querétaro’s waning confidence, and in the 52nd minute they took the lead. Leonardo Ramos got between the defense and headed home a long cross to make it 2-1 for the hosts.
Querétaro had a golden opportunity to tie the game in the 73rd minute, after VAR review awarded them a penalty kick when Del Valle was taken down in the box. But Del Valle failed to convert the spot kick, with Rodríguez making the save to keep it 2-1.
Lobos then put the game away in the 87th minute, when Yago da Silva went on a long run down the wing and scored from just inside the box to make it 3-1.
With the 3-1 win, Lobos reach 10 points while Querétaro still has zero.
