Estudiantes Tecos Vs. San Luis, 2012 Clausura: Potosinos Grab Deserved Win

San Luis are off to a brilliant start in the 2012 Clausura and look very much like a Liguilla team at present. They defeated a poor Estudiantes Tecos side on Friday night, making the most of their chances in a 2-0 victory. After scoring an early goal, San Luis were more concerned with keeping their shape and keeping the ball than they were with creating chances as they tried to hang on to a lead on the road. They made the most of their chances, however, and their second goal was a thing of beauty.

The first goal featured the Tecos defense falling asleep, as has been customary in recent seasons. At the end of a nice passing move in the 18th minute, Wilmer Aguirre touched the ball into the path of Alfredo Moreno, who ripped a shot on target. Christian Martinez made a save, but directed the ball right into Moreno's path. He finished his second chance, putting his team up 1-0.

Aguirre would get a goal of his own at the end of an even better passing move. Moises Velasco provided the assist, hitting a ball into the feet of Aguirre, who found space around the penalty spot. He controlled well and patiently waited for his opening, slotting a calm finish past Martinez, low and to his left.

Unfortunately, it wasn't all positive for San Luis. Aguirre was unfairly sent off for an accidental step on Jose Castro in the 94th minute. Earlier in the game, starting goalkeeper Oscar Perez had to be removed due to injury and was replaced by Cesar Lozano. It's been a brilliant start to the year for San Luis, but their momentum could shift if they struggle next week without Perez and Aguirre, two of their best players.
