Atlante Send Indios To Second Division; Queretaro Win

Atlante beat Indios by 3-0 to relegate the club to the second division. Indios' two-year run was highlighted by a trip to the Clausura 2009 semifinals.

Atlante 3, Indios 0

Atlante knoced Indios out of the Primera Division with a blowout win in Cancun.

Johan Fano, Jose Joel Gonzalez and Giancarlo Maldonado scored second-half goals to give Atlant the win.

Indios escaped relegation a week ago by beating Queretaro at home by 1-0 but their fate was postponed by just one week.

Fano scored the only goal Atlante needed to seal Indios' fate. Fano reached the top of the box and ripped a shot from long range that easily beat Christian Martinez.

Jaguares 1, Monterrey 1

Jagaures scored early in the second half but could not hold on and were forced to be content with a draw against Monterrey at home.

Martinez scored in the 50th minute when he shook off Hector Morales' mark inside the box and ripped a left-footed shot past Jonathan Orozco.

But Osvaldo Martinez bagged the equalizer in the 69th minute. Martinez let loose a shot from outside the box and was able to beat Oscar Perez.

Monterrey inched up to 8-1-3 and fell behind Chivas in the overall table but are still a good seven points up on Morelia.

Queretaro 2, Atlas 1

Javier Elizondo scored a goal in the 73rd minute to break a 1-1 deadlock as Queretaro beat Atlas at Estadio Corregidora.

Isaac Romo scored in the opening minute of the match. Hector Altamirano found Romo inside the box and Romo let loose a rocket that Damian Barbosa could not handle.

Gonzalo Vargas tied the score in the 42nd minute, though. Just as Queretaro were expecting to go into the break ahead, Vargas scored. Vargas lined up a shot from outside the box. Margarito Gonzalez blocked his initial attempt but on the following chance Vargas beat Guadalupe Martinez.

Gonzalez started the play that led to the match-winner. Gonzalez found Carlos Pinto with a long ball. Pinto immediately slipped the ball to Elizondo, who re-directed the pass into the net.
