Villa's treble dismantles Jaguares

6 January 2013-PA Sport

Emanuel Villa scored a hat-trick as Tigres Monterrey got its Clausura campaign under away with a 3-0 win over Jaguares.

The game was goalless at half-time, but Villa netted five minutes after the restart then again in the 68th and 86th minutes to seal an emphatic win.

Apertura semi-finalist Club America also opened with a win, Rubens Sambueza sealing a 2-1 comeback victory over Monterrey with a 90th-minute penalty.

Monterrey opened the scoring through Walter Ayovi's spot-kick in the 15th minute, but Jesus Molina levelled six minutes before the break and Sambueza intervened in the dying seconds.

Leon was held to a 2-2 draw as substitute Amaury Escoto snatched a late point for Queretaro.

Edwin Hernandez put the host, knocked out of the Apertura play-offs by eventual winner Tijuana in the last four, ahead after 24 minutes but Edson Vasquez levelled 12 minutes later.

Matias Britos re-established the lead five minutes after the break, but Escoto ensured the points were shared a minute before the end.

Second-half goals from Abraham Carreno and Hector Herrera gave Pachuca a 2-0 win over Atlante, while San Luis and Santos Laguna drew 1-1.

Herculez Gomez scored for visitors Santos in the 26th minute, but substitute Guillermo Rojas (66) levelled for the host, which had Javier Munoz sent off in the 79th minute.
