First Leg Of Mexican League Final Ends Scoreless

The first leg of the Apertura gran final between Mexico City's UNAM Pumas and Cancun's Atlante ended in a scoreless draw at Estadio Olimpico last night. The underdog home side dominated most of the run of play and had more--and better--chances but were unable to capitalize. Atlante's goalkeeper Federico Vilar was probably the man of the match, stepping in with several key saves, especially in the second half when Pumas seemed to be cutting off all of Atlante's escape routes. Other times, the host's forwards were unable to capitalize on their chances. The series now moves to Cancun where a winner will be decided Sunday night (7pm EST).
