Toluca wins it

In what will surely go down as a classic match, Toluca beat Cruz Azul to win the Apertura 2008 title, their first championship since 2005. Cruz Azul showed great heart, though, as they won the match 2-0 and sent the match to PKs.

But Toluca was too much as Hernan Cristante made a save in the sixth round of penalties to give Toluca their ninth title.

I'll have plenty more thoughts - and hopefully highlights - later. The game, though, was fantastic to watch. I can tell you that much right now.
