San Francisco FC 1, Sounders FC 0
Image
San Francisco FC takes the first leg of the aggregate goal series 1-0 off a 1st half PK. 2nd leg at CenturyLink Field on August 3rd.

Former MLSer Roberto Brown buried a penalty kick in the 27th minute and the San Francisco FC defense did the rest on Tuesday night, as the Panamanian club downed the Seattle Sounders 1-0 in the opening leg of the CONCACAF Champions League preliminary round in Panama City.

The two teams will wrap up the two-game aggregate-goal series in Seattle on Aug. 3, with the winner of the series advancing to the CCL group stage.

CCL Recap: TFC ride Plata brace to 2-1 win over Real Estelí
Image
Second-half sub bags pair as Toronto win first leg of prelim series


TORONTO — Joao Plata scored twice in the second half as Toronto FC defeated Real Estelí 2-1 on Wednesday at BMO Field in their first-leg match of the CONCACAF Champions League preliminary round.

The Reds looked headed for an easy, convincing victory after Plata's brace, but conceded an invaluable away goal to their Nicaraguan visitors off a goalkeeping error by Milos Kocic nine minutes from time that gives Estelí a glimmer of hope heading into the second leg next week.

Jackson strikes late in 2nd half to give FCD valuable 1st-leg win


In a physical, rain-soaked match at Estadio Cuscatlán in San Salvador, El Salvador, FC Dallas defeated Alianza FC 1-0 in the first leg of the CONCACAF Champions League play-in match thanks to Jackson Gonçalves.

After gathering a majority of the second half scoring opportunities, FC Dallas’ Mr. Do-it-all Brazilian made it official in the 70th minute, taking a flick from compatriot Ricardo Villar and driving by defender Edwin Martínez before slotting it by a helpless Jimmy Cuellar for the game's only goal.

A bittersweet victory
PR Islanders out of the CONCACAF Champions League

Image

Posted on Wed, Aug 3, 2011


The Puerto Rico Islanders fought all the way to the dying seconds of Wednesday’s match but in the end failed to advance to the group stage of the CONCACAF Champions League. Salvadorian club Isidro Metapan managed to advance due to the away goals rule on a 3-3 aggregate score.

Nicholas Addlery slotted home a low blast to the far post in the fifth and final minute of added time, making it 3-1 for the Puerto Rico Islanders and evening the two match series. Seconds after the ensuing kickoff, the referee blew the full-time whistle.

History Made

Hungry Kandji has dream return for Rapids
Lanky striker saves Colorado from defeat in 3-2 win vs. Metapán

Image

COMMERCE CITY, Colo. — Although unsatisfied with their performance in their 3-2 win over Isidro Metapán on Wednesday, the Colorado Rapids walked out of the match with two major positives: The return of Macoumba Kandji, and their first three points ever in the CONCACAF Champions League.

“Mac Kandji scores two goals, that’s probably the biggest thing,” said Jeff Larentowicz, who served as captain for the night. “Everybody’s been waiting for him to come back and he’s had nothing but a positive attitude, like he showed tonight. That’s a big positive.”

Toronto Takes Three At Tauro
Reds win Champions League match 2-1, moves atop Group C.

Image

Ryan Johnson and Julian de Guzman each scored a goal in the first half and the Toronto FC defense held on just long enough to finish the job as the Reds posted a 2-1 win over Tauro FC in the CONCACAF Champions League Group C opener for both teams on Thursday night in Panama City, Panama.

Luis Moreno scored the lone goal for Tauro FC from the penalty spot in the 76th minute, but it wasn’t enough to salvage a result against Toronto, who have now won both of their games away from home in this year’s tournament. They also topped Real Estelí in Nicaragua during the second leg of the preliminary round.

The win not only helped Toronto keep pace with three points atop Group C with fellow MLS side FC Dallas, but also gave MLS a perfect 5-0 record during this week’s group play openers.

The victory at Estadio Rommel Fernández in Panama City extended Toronto’s unbeaten run to six games in all competitions (four wins and two ties).

CCL Recap: Seattle hold on for historic win at Monterrey
Image
Fernández's goal helps Sounders make it 2-for-2 for MLS in Mexico


The Seattle Sounders made it two-for-two for MLS teams in Mexico in the CONCACAF Champions League with a massive 1-0 victory at Monterrey on Tuesday night in both teams’ second Group D match.

In the 39th minute, Pat Noonan threaded a beautiful ball through to Álvaro Fernández, who beat two defenders and coolly finished past Jonathan Orozco for a 1-0 lead.

Seattle held down enormous pressure from the defending CCL champions in the second half. Goalkeeper Terry Boss nearly gave Monterrey a gift when he failed to clear the ball cleanly in the 66th minute, giving Aldo de Nigris a golden opportunity on an empty net before losing the ball on the end line.

But the Sounders emerged victorious for the historic win, following up FC Dallas’ victory at Pumas UNAM last week.

CCL Recap: Colorado hold on for 1-1 tie at Real España
Image
First-half goal from Larentowicz gives Rapids a point on the road


The Colorado Rapids coughed up a 1-0 lead, but still came away with a valuable road point with a 1-1 draw in San Pedro Sula against Real España in CONCACAF Champions League Group B action. The Rapids took the lead in first-half stoppage-time through Jeff Larentowicz, but spent much of the second half on the back foot as La Maquina surged forward looking for the equalizer. They eventually got it after a poor clearance from Kosuke Kimura fell to Julio Rodriguez inside the six-yard box in the 86th minute.

Colorado now have four points from the first two Champions League match days.
