CONCACAF Champions League Review: Olimpia, Honduras Progreso claim key wins


Olimpia and Honduras Progreso remained alive in their bids to reach the CONCACAF Champions League quarter-finals.

They had to come from behind, but Olimpia cruised to a 5-1 win over Police United on Thursday.

A brilliant sixth-minute finish by John King put the Belize side ahead in Belmopan, yet they were behind at half-time.

Carlo Costly levelled, Rommel Quioto rifled in a 25-yard effort and Kevin Alvarez tapped in for Olimpia.

Costly volleyed in another before a late Carlos Mejia penalty saw the visitors complete their win.

Olimpia are three points behind Group E leaders Pachuca ahead of a meeting between the teams.

In Group A, Honduras Progreso moved top courtesy of a 1-0 victory against W Connection.

Victor Moncada scored the winner from distance after poor goalkeeping by Julani Archibald.

Honduras Progreso have played all four of their games and sit a point ahead of Pumas UNAM.
