CLUB TIJUANA EARNS PRESEASON TIE AT HOME
Xoloitzcuintles 1-1 Herediano, friendly match at Estadio Caliente

TIJUANA (July 7, 2018) –Jesus Angulo scored his first goal with Club Tijuana Xoloitzcuintles Saturday night in a 1-1 tie against CS Herediano of Costa Rica in a preseason friendly.

Angulo, who came from Dorados de Sinaloa this offseason, gave the home side the lead in the 55th minute at Estadio Caliente. The newcomer this season from Dorados de Sinaloa found the back of the net after several standout individual plays earlier in the game. Coach Diego Cocca’s team led 1-0.

But that lead would not last long. Herediano tied the game in the 64th minute when second half substitute Jairo Arrieta fired a shot past Xoloitzcuintles goalkeeper Luis Michel.

Cocca’s team had already moved up its lines and began to create a fluid attack before the goals.

Club Tijuana began to pressure with its attack in the later part of the first half. Martin Lucero and Angulo had a couple of shots on goal. But Herediano goalkeeper Daniel Cambronero was there to block both.

Striker Erick Torres nearly scored in the 41st minute when he flicked a shot a shot over the goalkeeper. The ball sailed wide left.

The Xoloitzcuintles will now travel to Sacramento, Calif. for its fourth preseason match. It is slated to face Monarcas Morelia July 11 at Raley Field. The Xoloitzcuintles will close out the preseason at home with a match against Dorados de Sinaloa July 14.

Club Tijuana was coming off ties against Cruz Azul (0-0) in Irvine, Calif. and against Pumas (1-1) at home last week.
