    ESTELI, Nicaragua – Real Esteli captured its eighth straight Nicaraguan title on Saturday, playing visiting Diriangen to a 0-0 draw at the Estadio Independencia in the second leg of the 2014 Clausura final to win the series 2-1 on aggregate.

    “El Tren del Norte” set a new mark for most consecutive league titles by a Central American team, breaking the record it shared with El Salvador’s Hercules (1928-1934).

    On its run to the championship, Esteli completed the season with an 18-match unbeaten streak (12-6-0), posting shutouts in six of its last 10 outings.

    Esteli will also participate in the CONCACAF Champions League for a fifth time.
