Arriola scores first goal for Tijuana

On Saturday night, Club Tijuana midfielder Paul Arriola had a moment he will never forget.

Arriving at the top of the box in the 88th minute, Arriola scored his first ever professional goal, calmly placing a ball past Monterrey goalkeeper Jonathan Orozco. The goal was a huge one at that moment for Xolos, who thought they had saved a point against a tough opponent.

Unfortunately for them, Rayados striker Humberto Suazo scored on a flying header just seconds later, giving Monterrey a 2-1 victory. However, Arriola’s debut season with Xolos continues to see him improve and see more playing time.
