Dorlan Pabon y Urretaviscaya intentaron disparos pero Gudiño logra detener el esférico para evitar el gol albiazul.

Luego de un tiro de esquina, fue César Montes quien de cabeza conecta el balón, pero pasa apenas arriba del travesaño y el marcador no se movió.

Nuevamente por lesión, ahora Jonathan Urretaviscaya sale del terreno de juego luego de lastimarse la rodilla con el terreno de juego, en su lugar entra Leonel Vangioni.

Un zurdazo de Celso Ortíz pone la última jugada de peligro del primer tiempo, sin embargo, el balón pasa encima del travesaño.

Al 43′ cae el primero de las  Chivas.

La segunda mitad arranca con gran intensidad, tras una gran jugada de Jesús Gallardo, Dorlan Pabon aprovecha un rebote del portero rival y anota el primero de los del Cerro de la Silla al 49′.

Un par de tiros de esquina a nuestro favor siguieron la tónica ofensiva, pero el balón no encontraba dirección de portería, César Montes y Stefan Medina hacen un par de cortes defensivos para evitar el ataque rival.

En un tiro de esquina al 65′, Stefan Medina ponía la ventaja para Rayados, con un cabezazo firme marcaba el 2-1 para Monterrey.

Tres minutos más tarde, Chivas empata el partido, los dirigidos por Diego Alonso, quien estaba en tribuna por haber sido expulsado ante Puebla, no bajaban los brazos, Jesús Gallardo y Nicolás Sánchez disparan a portería pero no encuentran destino.

Chivas anota el tercero al 76′ y el cuarto al 84′.

Ramirez wins unanimous decision over Orozco

Sep 18, 2018

Ramirez vs. Orozco/Herring vs. Moralde/Flores vs. Gutierrez 

* Ramirez wins unanimous decision over Orozco, retains WBC super lightweight world title
* Herring dominates Moralde, wins USBA junior lightweight belt

FRESNO, Calif (Sept. 14, 2018) —  Jose Ramirez didn’t want the hometown fans to leave unhappy. In front of a crowd of 11,102 at the Save Mart Center on Friday evening, Avenal native Ramirez retained the WBC super lightweight world title with a unanimous decision against fellow unbeaten Antonio Orozco. The scores were 119-107 3X.

Ramirez (23-0, 16 KOs) knocked Orozco down with a crisp right hand in the fourth round and found success with his left hook throughout the bout. In the eighth round, Ramirez scored a knockdown with a left hook to the liver and nearly finished Orozco at the end of the round.

“This was an excellent fight, and Antonio Orozco is a true warrior,” Ramirez said. “We put it out there, and Antonio was a very tough opponent who gave it his all. A special thanks to all the people in Fresno who showed their support tonight.”

Ramirez won the belt with a hard-fought unanimous decision against Amir Imam back in March. For his first title defense, he took on a previously undefeated challenger in Orozco (27-1, 17 KOs), who on paper represented the toughest test of his career. Ramirez and Orozco went toe-to-toe and produced a championship bout for the ages.

Flanked by his Marine comrades on his way to the ring, 2012 U.S. Olympian and Marine Corps veteran Jamel “Semper Fi” Herring (18-2, 10 KOs ) notched the most significant win of his carer, defeating John Vincent Moralde (20-2, 10 KOs) by 10-round unanimous decision (100-90 3X) to win the vacant USBA junior lightweight title.

“I wanted to show that I could not only make 130 pounds, but that I could be strong at the weight as well,” Herring said. “Now, I’m that much closer to a world title shot.”

In his biggest test to date, 18-year-old sensation Gabriel Flores Jr. (10-0, 5 KOs) was undeterred by the big stage and the bright lights. Flores, from Stockton, Calif., survived a first-round knockdown to defeat Roger Gutierrez by unanimous decision in a six-round lightweight bout.

The scores were as followed: 59-54, 59-54, and 58-54.

“I could’ve done better, but I was in there against a tough guy. I have no explanation for it, but my legs locked up in the early rounds. I started moving in the last rounds, and my legs were feeling better. I boxed him and got the victory. All I can do from here is learn from this experience.

“I came back strong. I know l will be better next time out.”

In other action:

Vacant USBA Welterweight Title: Alexander Besputin (11-0, 9 KOs), TKO 9, 1:44, Alan Sanchez (20-4-1, 10 KOs).

Besputin said: “I feel very grateful to be signed by Top Rank, the best promotional company in the world. I now want all of the big names at 135, including the winner of Lomachenko and Pedraza.”

Super Lightweights: Hiroki Okada (19-0, 13 KOs), split decision, 10 rounds, Cristian Cora (27-7-2, 11 KOs). Scores: 95-94 Okada, 95-94 Coria, 95-94 Okada.

Okada knocked down in the 10th round by Coria right hand.

Lightweights: Bryan Vasquez (38-3, 20 KOs), unanimous decision, 10 rounds, Carlos Cardenas (21-15-1, 13 KOs). Scores: 98-92, 96-94, 96-94 .

Vasquez said: “I feel very grateful to be signed by Top Rank, the best promotional company in the world. I now want all of the big names at 135, including the winner of Lomachenko and Pedraza.”

Featherweights: Isidro Ochoa (6-0, 2 KOs), KO 3, 2:14, Elio De Jesus  (2-3, 0 KOs).

Super Bantamweights: Santos Ortega (3-0, 1 KO), unanimous decision, 4 rounds, Sebastian Baltazar (1-2, 0 KOs). Scores: 40-36, 40-36, 40-36.

U.S. MEN’S NATIONAL TEAM TO 1-0 VICTORY IN USA-MEXICO

Sep 14, 2018

TYLER ADAMS’ STRIKE LEADS U.S. MEN’S NATIONAL TEAM TO 1-0 VICTORY IN USA-MEXICO, PRESENTED BY AT&T

Tyler Adams Records First International Goal in 71st Minute;
USA Improves Record Against Mexico to 14-7-6 Since 2000

NASHVILLE (Sept. 11, 2018) – Continuing to test itself against some of the best in the world, the U.S. Men’s National Team was buoyed by a second-half surge and utilized a 71st minute strike from Tyler Adams – his first international goal – to earn a 1-0 victory against regional rivals Mexico in front of 40,194 fans at Nissan Stadium in Nashville. With the victory, the USA improves its all-time mark against Mexico to 19-34-15 and extends its series advantage since 2000 to 14-7-6.

The MNT utilized a high press to break up Mexico’s passing lanes early on, but the visitors carried possession for much of the first half. El Trí forced two important stops out of Zack Steffen, with the USA goalkeeper pushing Edson Alvarez’s snap header off a corner kick over the bar in the 15thminute before smothering Roberto Alvarado’s one-time effort in the 37th.

The USA had its first-half opportunities as well, with Gyasi Zardes earning a free kick just outside the area, before Kellyn Acosta’s take was blocked by the wall in the 28th minute. Later in the half, Zardes laid a pass for Tim Weah, with the 18-year-old taking a low first-time hit that Mexico goalkeeper Hugo Gonzalez got down well to save.

As so many USA-Mexico clashes have been, the second half became a physical affair, which boiled over after the hour mark. It began as Diego Lainez was judged to have fouled Matt MIazga in the U.S. box, with the pair exchanging a healthy dose of words and gestures. Play restarted, but stopped soon again when Angel Zaldivar delivered a two-footed tackle on Wil Trapp at midfield that forced referee Ricardo Montero to show a straight red card in the 67th minute.

Up a man, the USA needed just four minutes to take advantage. Working with more space, Kellyn Acosta sprung Antonee Robinson down the left, allowing the full back to deliver a low cross into the box. Adams met the cross with a late run and one-timed his effort past Hugo Gonzalez in the 71 stminute. The goal was the 19-year-old midfielder’s first for the U.S. MNT.

With Mexico unable to create much in the attack while down a man, the USA weathered the physical play to earn the 1-0 victory over its regional rival.

The MNT will continue to test itself against top international sides with a pair of Kickoff Series matches next month. The USA will host Colombia on Thursday, Oct. 11 at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Fla. (7:30 p.m. ET; FS1, UniMas, UDN), and follow that up with a match against Peru on Tuesday, Oct. 16 at Pratt & Whitney Stadium at Rentschler Field in East Hartford, Conn. (7:30 p.m. ET; ESPN2, UniMas, UDN).

Goal Scoring Rundown:
USA – Tyler Adams (Antonee Robinson) 71st minute: It took the USA just four minutes after the going up a man to find the opening goal. With more space to work with, the USA took advantage, with Kellyn Acosta slotting Antonee Robinson in down the left side. The full back centered a low pass into the box where a late run from Adams allowed him to one-time his effort past Hugo Gonzalez USA 1, MEX 0 [ WATCH ] FINAL.

Key Save and Defensive Plays:
USA – Zack Steffen, 15th minute: The first good chance of the match came from Mexico as Roberto Alvarado’s corner kick from the left picked out Edson Alvarez at the near post. The defender snapped his header towards goal, but Steffen pushed the ball over the bar to force another corner kick. On the ensuing take from the right, Steffen easily claimed the ball at the back post.

USA – Zack Steffen, 37th minute: Catching the U.S. in transition, Mexico broke out with another dangerous attack when Diego Lainez sped down the right before beating Wil Trapp into the penalty area. Once there, Lainez dashed along on the end line and centered for Alvarado, but his first-time effort was smothered a yard off the line by Steffen.

MEX – Hugo Gonzalez, 40th minute: Tim Weah helped the U.S. attack find its footing late in the second half. Minutes after blasting a long-range effort to earn a corner kick, Weah forced El Trí goalkeeper Hugo Gonzalez into action for the first time. Intercepting a pass in midfield, Wil Trapp quickly transitioned to Gyasi Zardes, who switched the ball to the left for Weah. The winger took the pass in stride and one-timed a low effort from outside the box that Gonzalez did well to block.

MEX – Hugo Gonzalez, 62nd minute: The U.S. continued to pressure and came close again thanks to a quick restart from Julian Green. The substitute midfielder played to the left for Antonee Robinson who took some space before whipping in a cross for Zardes that Gonzalez claimed it at the near post.
