Liguilla day one

Chivas lost just twice in the regular season, each by 1-0 scores, en route to finishing atop the table entering the Liguilla.

Monterrey showed Chivas just how little they thought of that accomplishment on Wednesday. Monterrey demolished Chivas by 4-1 and now have a huge advantage heading into Saturday's decisive second leg.

Jared Borgetti had a hat trick as Ricardo Lavolpe won his first Mexican league playoff match since Dec. 1, 2001, when he led Toluca past - as luck would have it - Chivas.

Meanwhile, Jaguares also won their home game as Cruz Azul fell in Chiapas by 1-0. American-born Daniel Hernandez played all 90 minutes in the match and picked up a yellow card in the 50th minute. Itamar Batista scored the game's only goal, in the 85th minute.

Yeah, the flood gates opened after Ramoncito was sent off. It's still an ass kicking whether it was 11-on-11 or 11-on-9. It was already over by the time Pato got sent off too.
