W Connection 2-1 Chivas Guadalajara

Who would have thought a 10-man W Connection would get a result against CD Guadalajara in last night's CONCACAF Champions' Cup match?

The Trinidad & Tobago club was able to stun the Mexicans even after their goalkeeper Jan Michael Williams was red carded in the 19th minute for stopping a shot outside the area.

A man down and a big absence on defense should have been doom, but Connection was able to hold Chivas till the 60th minute when Omar Bravo headed in a goal.

But Connection did not retreat and in the 78th minute, captain Earl Jean headed in the tying goal. Then, in the 86th minute, to everyone's surprise, Connection was able to take the lead on a goal by Jose Luis Seabra.

These two clubs will meet on February 28th in the second leg of the tournament in Guadalajara. Chivas is still the safer bet, but Connection should not be counted out.
