As the Dynamo closed out their preseason campaign on Saturday, CCL foe Santos Laguna continued their trek through the 2013 LigaMX Clausura.
On Friday, Santos upset second-place Club America at Estadio Corona, defeating the Mexico City-based club 1-0 behind a first-half goal from Darwin Quintero. The goal was Quintero's second of the season and his second in as many games.
Friday's match was a chippy affair between the two Mexican clubs, as seven yellow cards were handed out. Former Mexican national team goalkeeper Oswaldo Sanchez made three saves for his fourth clean sheet of the season.
Current men's national team striker Herculez Gomez played 62 minutes for Los Guerreros, while current Mexican national team striker Oribe Peralta played the full 90 minutes and assisted on Quintero's goal.
Following the win, Santos now sits in sixth place in the LigaMX standings. Here is a list of their upcoming fixtures:
