MEXICO CITY — Relegation-threatened Chivas secured a vital point with a 3-3 draw against Tijuana on Sunday in the Mexican first division.

America remains top of the league despite losing 3-2 to Queretaro, while Atlas defeated Puebla 2-1 to move within two points of the lead after the fourteenth round.

In other weekend games, Santos Laguna drew 1-1 with Pumas, Cruz Azul beat Morelia 3-1, Chiapas overcame Veracruz 2-1, Tigres drew 2-2 with Monterrey, Pachuca against Leones Negros ended 0-0, and Leon defeated Toluca 3-2.

Tijuana's Alfedo Moreno opened the scoring in the 24th minute, but Omar Bravo equalized in the 35th and scored again nine minutes later. Moreno struck from close range to level in the 54th and Dario Benedetto headed a goal from a corner ten minutes later. A stoppage time header from Jair Pereira snatched a draw for the home team.

Queretaro's Camilo Sanvezzo opened the scoring in the 25th and William da Silva netted another a minute before half time. America took advantage of Ricardo Osorio's expulsion with goals from Oribe Peralta in the 66th and Luis Mendoza eight minutes later.

Sanvezzo's subtle flick handed Queretaro the victory in the last minute of the game, and made him the league's current leading scorer, with ten goals.
