Olimpia crowned inaugural Scotiabank CONCACAF League champion

Concacafleague.com, SAN JOSE, Costa Rica, Fri. Oct. 27, 2017–Olimpia earned the inaugural Scotiabank CONCACAF League title Thursday night at a rainy Estadio Nacional, overcoming host Santos de Guapiles in the two-legged final, 4-1 on penalty kicks.

Michael Chirinos scored the second leg’s only goal in the first half, giving the Honduran power a 1-0 win and leveling the series 1-1 on aggregate. The sides went directly to penalty kicks after the final whistle brought the second half to a close.

Olimpia, which lifted its first CONCACAF trophy since the 1988 Champions’ Cup, converted each of its four attempts, while Santos hit the back of the net once in three tries…

With the triumph, Olimpia sealed a spot in next year’s Scotiabank CONCACAF Champions League, becoming the only team to qualify for all 10 editions.
