    GUATEMALA CITY, Guatemala --- Glucosoral was crowned champion of the inaugural CONCACAF Futsal Club Championship on Sunday, overcoming Borussia 5-4 on penalty kicks after their final ended 4-4 in front of 4,682 fans at the Domo Polideportivo.

    In a match pitting Central American rivals against each other, Costa Rica’s Borussia rallied from a two-goal deficit, as Alonso Cordero netted twice in the last 10 minutes to level the score and force overtime.

    Neither team found the back of the net in either of two supplemental periods consisting of three minutes each.

    In the penalty kick shootout, goalkeeper William Ramirez stopped two attempts to give the Guatemalans the title.

    Glucosoral jumped out to a 4-2 lead before halftime thanks to an Edgar Santizo brace, as well as single tallies from José Mansilla and Rafael González.  Marco Lopez and Edwin Cubillo were are target for Borussia in the opening 20 minutes.

    For the tournament-deciding penalties, Borussia head coach Esteban Jimenez changed goalkeepers, inserting Alfred Lowe for Fabian Alvarado.  Lowe made a save on Edgar Santizo, but it wasn’t enough.
