Pumas, Morelia play to scoreless draw in Mexican soccer

Morelia, Mexico, Sep 22 (efe-epa).- Pumas UNAM played to a scoreless draw against host Morelia in Matchday 10 of 17 of the Mexican soccer league's Apertura championship, a contest that ended early due to an electrical storm.

Morelia, Mexico, Sep 22 (efe-epa).- Pumas UNAM played to a scoreless draw against host Morelia in Matchday 10 of 17 of the Mexican soccer league's Apertura championship, a contest that ended early due to an electrical storm.

Pumas (18 points), which could have moved provisionally into first place with win by a three-goal margin, fell to third place behind league-leading Cruz Azul and Club America, both of which have 20 points.

The visitors were superior in the first half of Friday night's match at Morelos Stadium in this western city and came within millimeters of taking the lead in the 33rd minute on a header by Felipe Mora off of Victor Malcorra's outstanding cross.

Morelia goalkeeper Sebastian Sosa got his hand on the shot and then had to dive to bat the ball away as it was about to trickle over the goal line.

The hosts, however, dominated the second half and had at least two good chances to score, the best of them coming in the 77th minute on a shot by Aldo Rocha on a rapid counter-attack that Pumas goalkeeper Alfredo Saldivar did well to save.

Heavy rains then drenched the playing field, followed by lightning that forced the referee to end the match six minutes before second-half stoppage time.

Morelia could have moved into the Apertura's eight-team playoff zone with a win but instead is provisionally in 10th place with 13 points.

Matchday 10 will continue Saturday with four games: Toluca-Necaxa, Leon-Lobos BUAP, Cruz Azul-Atlas and Tijuana-Pachuca.

Three games are on tap for Sunday: Guadalajara-Queretaro, Santos Laguna-Veracruz and Tigres UANL-Monterrey.
