Mendez (ms 83 and 84) scored by the Sharks and Puebla discounted with an own goal by defender Jose Rivas (m.53).

The Chilean Joe Abrigo shot left-footed in the 17th and seconds later Hiber Ruiz let go the possibility of taking advantage in a free kick. Puebla got the ball and in 44 the Uruguayan Cristian Tabó was close to score, but he failed and they arrived in half without annotations.
  Veracruz went out to look for goals in the second half, however it was Puebla who took advantage when Tabó entered the right wing and threw a center topped by the Canadian Lucas Cavallino. The goalkeeper bounced the ball and defender Jose Rivas put it in own door for the 1-0.Ruiz had the equalizer in his boots in 58 and failed for Veracruz and in 67 the Puebla put together a good counterattack, spoiled to last When it seemed like a matter of time for the home team to secure victory, Veracruz turned the game around and in two minutes decided the victory. Cristian Menéndez accepted an Abrigo service on a free kick in the 83rd minute and turned on his head and a minute later he accepted a pass from Carlos Esquivel and again from a header he put the 2-1. With the victory the Veracruz went up to the twelfth place with a triumph, a draw, two losses and four points, one more than the Puebla that continues with three.
