The FCD U-18s bounced back from their day one loss to Monterrey, defeating J. League side Yokohama F. Marinos 3-1 in their second game of the 2014 Copa Chivas.

FCD fell behind early in the match to a Marinos goal, but Miguel Ojeda pulled FCD level just before halftime. In the second half, FCD pushed for the win and found it through two goals from big forward Santiago Agudelo.

After two rounds of play, FCD sits third in their six-team group with tied with Monterrey on three points. Atlas leads the group with six points while Vitoria sits in second with four. FCD has another tough match today as they'll face off with hosts Chivas Guadalajara at noon.

After today, they'll have a much-needed rest day before rounding out the group stage with games against the two teams above them as they look to finish in one of the top two spots and advance to the semifinals.
