FRENCH STRIKERS STAR IN LIGA MX CLASH
In a battle of two of Mexico's top teams, a pair of French strikers stood tallest as Club America's Jeremy Menez (69') struck from the penalty spot to offset an Andre-Pierre Gignac (41') goal for Tigres in a 1-1 draw on Saturday.  It was Menez's second goal of the 2018 Clausura, while Gignac now has three.

HEREDIANO ON TARGET IN NINE-GOAL GAME
First-place Herediano (7W-1D-2L, 22 points) rolled to a 6-3 win over Municipal Liberia (1-2-7, 5) in 2018 Costa Rican Clausura action on Saturday.  Elias Aguilar bagged a brace (14', 33'), while Yendrick Ruiz (3'), Jairo Arrieta (7'), Randall Azofeifa (51') and a Felix Montoya own-goal (31') rounded out the Florenses' goal-fest.

RUBILIO CASTILLO CASHES IN FOR MOTAGUA

The 26-year-old forward is level atop the 2018 Honduran Clausura scoring chart with Olimpia's Michael Chirinos on four goals each.

ALIANZA WINNING STREAK ENDS, BUT REMAINS UNBEATEN
First-place Alianza (6-1-0, 19) saw its six-match winning streak to open the 2018 Salvadoran Clausura snapped in Sunday's 0-0 draw with visiting Pasaquina.  The Albos have conceded one goal in their four games, including three straight shutouts.

HERNANDEZ STAYS RED HOT AT WEST HAM
It might be the coldest time of year in England, but Mexico international Javier Hernandez is scorching hot.  Thanks to a header in Wet Ham's 2-0 win over visiting Watford on Saturday, the 29-year-old forward has scored in three of his last four English Premier League matches, giving him seven goals for the 2017/18 season.
