MOST COMMENTED

[AMERICANS ABROAD] Tijuana's remarkable run continued as the second-year Mexican first division club beat Toluca, 2-1, in the first leg of Liga MX's Torneo Apertura final. U.S. internationals Edgar Castillo and Joe Corona started for the Xolos, who travel to Toluca for Sunday's second leg.

Ecuadoran Fidel Martinez put Tijuana ahead in the 24th minute, Edgar Benitez equalized two minutes later, but Paraguayan Pablo Aguilar gave the Xolos the win with a goal five minutes before the end of the first half by poking Corona's header into the net.

Castillo played the whole game at left back. Corona, who has started the last three games in midfield, came off in the 73rd minute.

Castillo won the 2008 Torneo Clausura with Santos. Corona won the Torneo de Ascenso that earned Tijuana passage to the top level of Mexican soccer in 2011.
