Pumas Sub-17 advance to semifinals, will face Pachuca

The only Pumas youth team still in the liguilla race is the U-17s, who advanced to the semifinals last weekend after a tough battle with Queretaro.

Pumas, who came into the playoffs as the number two ranked team, finished their quarterfinal pairing with a 2-2 aggregate scoreline against seventh-seeded Queretaro.

Brian Figueroa scored for Pumas in the opening leg’s 1-1 draw, while Juan Gomez scored from the penalty spot in the second leg’s 1-1 contest.

Next up for the Pumas canteranos is a showdown with Pachuca, one of the strongest youth academies in Mexico. The two sides will face off on Thursday in Hidalgo and finish up on Sunday at the Cantera.
