Cacho leads Pachuca to Mexican league title

Juan Carlos Cacho, whose two goals gave Pachuca a 2-1 victory over Club America on Friday in the first leg of Mexico's Torneo Clausura finals, scored in the 82nd minute of the second leg to give the Tuzos a 1-1 tie and their second straight Clausura title.

Playing his last game for America before joining MLS's Chicago Fire, Cuauhtemoc Blanco scored in the 68th minute to pull America even on aggregate, but Cacho once again came to the rescue and tallied his third goal in two games.

The title is the fourth for Pachuca in the last year. It has also won the Copa Sudamericana and CONCACAF Champions Cup. America's loss in the final of the Torneo Clausura capped a disappoiting week. It had been eliminated from the Copa Libertadores, falling to Santos of Brazil on Wednesday.
