Concacaf Champions League: Seattle Sounders 2 Comunicaciones 2

Seattle mounted a stirring fightback through Osvaldo Alonso who scored a dramatic equalizer in the 89th minute to battle Comunicaciones to a 2-2 draw in Guatemala City. An uncharacteristic mistake by Kasey Keller following a corner allowed Rafael Morales to latch onto a loose ball and give the lead to the Guatemalan side. Alonso had earlier neutralized an early Comunicaciones lead by blasting an open field goal which took a fortuitous deflection off a defender and past goalkeeper Paredes.
Alonso before this had only scored three goals so this was a huge occasion for him and his team.
With this result the Sounders enter the quarterfinals of the Champions League with a match left in hand against defending champions Monterey to be played on October 18th.
