Comunicaciones stun Colorado Rapids in CONCACAF Champions League

Despite playing the final 74 minutes with a man advantage, the Colorado Rapids could manage just a 1-0 win over Guatemalan side Comunicaciones on Wednesday in Commerce City, Colo., and the visitors won a penalty shootout to advance to the quarterfinals of the CONCACAF Champions League.

Comunicaciones won the first leg 1-0 in Guatemala City on Feb. 17, so the two-leg, total-goal series finished tied 1-1.
