MONTERREY, Mexico -- Monterrey closed out its participation in the 2016/17 Scotiabank CONCACAF Champions League on a winning note with a 3-0 victory over Don Bosco in a Group D match on Wednesday night.
Angel Lopez, Aldo De Nigris and Misael Dominguez scored for the Rayados (2W-0T-2L, 6 points) at Estadio BBVA Bancomer. De Nigris’ goal was the 16th of his SCCL career, equaling him with Humberto Suazo for the most in team history.
The three-time SCCL champion dictated the pace from the opening to the final whistle. It took a 1-0 lead in the 20th minute as Lopez headed home Dominguez's right-wing feed from four yards at the near post.
De Nigris doubled the lead in the 43rd minute, latching onto an Edwin Cardona pass from the left flank and firing a 14-yard drive past goalkeeper Ronald Elusma.
Six minutes into the second half, Dominguez closed out the scoring when he tapped home a rebound of a Cardona shot from four yards.
Don Bosco (0W-0D-3L, 0) will visit group winner Arabe Unido (3-0-0, 9) in Panama City, Panama, on October 18 to complete group play.
