Mexico's Tigres beat Toronto FC 3-1 in Campeones Cup

TORONTO (AP) Jesus Duenas scored twice to help Mexican champion Tigres UANL beat MLS champion Toronto FC 3-1 on Wednesday in the inaugural Campeones Cup.

The result was a measure of revenge for the Mexican squad, ousted by Toronto in March in the CONCACAF Champions League quarterfinals on away goals. Each team earned $240,000 for playing, with $100,000 going to the winner.

"It wasn't easy because TFC has a good team and has good-quality players," Tigres coach Ricardo Ferretti said after the match through a translator.
