Kiana Palacios finished off the penalty area with her right leg and made it 2-0 for the visit in the 40th minute.

Captain Andrea ‘La Chata’ Hernandez gave Bravas a light of hope and joy for the fans with his goal in the 73rd minute. Hernandez headed in a cross from the penalty area that was denied by goalkeeper Itzel Gonzalez, but the ball fell back to La Chata. On this occasion he did not miss the opportunity in the counter-strike.
