FULLERTON, Calif. - Juan Franco scored twice to lead Necaxa

of Mexico to a 4-1 rout of the Los Angeles Galaxy in the first game

of their CONCACAF Champions' Cup quarterfinal series Wednesday

night.

Franco's second goal broke a 1-1 tie in the 51st minute. Victor

Ruiz started the counterattack when he collected a turnover at

midfield and passed to Luis Roberto Alves.

Alves sent a crossing pass from the left wing to Franco, who

just beat his defender and headed the ball from 7 yards inside the

left post in front of 3,814 at Cal State Fullerton.

Franco gave Necaxa a 1-0 lead in the 27th minute with a 10-yard

shot inside the right post. The Galaxy's Alex Pineda Chacon tied

the score on a 20-yard free kick in the 36th minute.

Alves, a member of Mexico's 1994 World Cup team, and Miguel

Larrosa ended the scoring with goals in the 81st and 87th minutes.

The final match of the two-game series will take place April 16

in Aguascalientes, Mexico. The team with the most goals in the

series will advance to the semifinals.
