The team from Baja California Sur overcame Alebrijes de Oaxaca 2-1, coming from behind on the scoreboard. The squad coached by Raúl Rico managed to maintain their undefeated record at Guaycura Stadium; this tournament they have three wins and three ties at home.

The first half was a very tight game with few scoring opportunities. The only real danger came from Josué Arana in the 37th minute. The 22 years old midfielder took two players off his line, made a one-two with Flavio Santos and shot inside the box, but his shot went too high.

In the second half, the visitors came out in force and made it 1-0 in the 46th minute. Josué Gómez made an individual move and unleashed a long-range left-footed shot that was unreachable for Jonathan Estrada.

The Paceños were aware of the need for a comeback and Raúl Rico made changes from the bench. La Paz began to step into the opponent's half until they scored a goal in the 76th minute. "Chapo" Gutiérrez sent in a perfect cross that Luis Pérez headed in. Alebrijes' goalkeeper saved the first shot, but Michelle Benitez pushed the rebound into the back of the net.

The South Californian team kept on attacking with their spirits high and made the comeback in the 83rd minute. Morrison Palma filtered a ball to Michelle Benítez behind the center backs and the Sinaloense player put the goal on a silver platter for Ulises Jaimes to seal the victory.

With this result, The Paceños have 19 points and are in fourth place in the table. Raúl Rico's squad has two more away games to play against Leones Negros and Cimarrones; they will return home to face Venados on the last day of the tournament on Tuesday, April 9.
