Belen Cruz opened the scoring for Tigres in the 13th minute by following up on a rebound. 21-year-old Lizbeth Ovalle then made it 2-0 in the 16th with the first screamer of the match.

With Monterrey Refusing To Pay Up, Corona Foots Bill For Las Rayadas’ Championship Bonus

Monterrey Femenil claimed the 2019 Liga MX Femenil Apertura title with a 2-1 aggregate win over UANL in front of 38,251 fans on Saturday. Las Rayadas had lost in the 2018 and 2019 Clausura finals before finally earning their first-ever title.
