CHAD WINGER - Sunday, March 19, 2006
US U-20 striker Sammy Ochoa opened his first team account with a game winner as UAG Tecos scraped out a road victory over UNAM Pumas.

Ochoa, 19, grabbed the contest's only goal in the eighth minute by powering a header past UNAM keeper Sergio Bernal from a Carlos Casartelli serve.

The Morelia-born American was making just his third first-team appearance for the Guadalajara side and was replaced in the 75th minute by Rubén Rubio.

Ochoa, brother of Chivas USA midfielder Jesus, was a member of the United States' squad at last summer's World Youth Championships in Holland where he made appearances in all four contests, three of which were starts.
