    Former NYRB Amando Moreno scored for Tijuana last night in Copa MX play, his second goal in three Copa matches this season. US 17 year old forward Brandon Vazquez saw his first action for Tijuana’s top squad subbing on for Moreno in the 60th minute. Paul Arriola and John Requejo also went 90 minutes for Los Xolos. Unfortunately, Tijuana earned only a draw against Lobos, which means they need a lot of help to advance out of the group stage.

    And former Galaxy midfielder Juninho subbed on in the 78th for Tijuana as well.
