MEXICO CITY - Arturo Gonzalez scored in the 55th minute as Atlas defeated Pumas 1-0 Sunday to remain undefeated after the fourth round of Mexico's first division, while America retained its 100 per cent record and the league lead with a 2-0 victory against Tigres.

William da Silva netted the winner for Queretaro three minutes before the final whistle.

Santos Laguna's Djaniny Tavares opened the scoring before goals, but Camilo Sanvezzo and Emilio Lopez put Queretaro into the lead before Javier Orozco equalized in the 65th.

Edgar Andrade and Daniel Villalba scored in the last 12 minutes, as Veracruz came from behind against Monterrey, which had gone ahead through Dorlan Pabon in the 6th.

Bruno Pires, Emiliano Armenteros and Franco Arizala all scored in the second half for Chiapas, which went in at halftime 2-0 down, with Leon's goals coming via Carlos Pena and Mauro Boselli.

A goal either side in each half for Ariel Nahuelpan put Pachuca 2-0 up against Chivas, with Hirving Lozano netting the third in second half injury time.
