Americans open season in Mexico

While Mexico's national team was celebrating its Gold Cup title at Giants Stadium and Club America was playing Chelsea at the new Dallas Cowboys Stadium, Mexican clubs got down to business in the First Division's Torneo Apertura. Jose Francisco Torres, the lone Mexico-based American on the U.S. Confederations Cup roster, did not suit up for Pachuca on the opening day of the 2009 Torneo Apertura, but four other Americans -- including two who spent most of last season in the minor leagues -- played.

Former U.S. U-20 Sammy Ochoa came on late for Estudiantes Tecos in its 3-2 home loss to Pachuca.

Fellow Californian Jesus Padilla also came on as a sub for Guadalajara in a 4-3 loss to defending Apertura champion Toluca.

Marco Antonio Vidal was back in the starting lineup for surprise 2009 Clausura semifinalist Indios in its 0-0 tie at home with Monterrey.

Loaned to Tigres, his third club of the year, New Mexico product Edgar Castillo started for Tigres in its 1-1 tie with Puebla.

The Puebla goal was scored by former MLS star Carlos Ruiz in Mexico debut.
