    PROVIDENCE, Guyana.-- Alberth Elis struck in the first half to give visiting Olimpia a 1-0 win over Alpha United in the 2014/15 CONCACAF Champions League opener for each on Tuesday at the Guyana National Stadium.

    The Lions are now unbeaten in eight of their last 10 games in the competition.

    The 18-year-old Elis, who scored for Honduras against Panama last month in Central American qualifying for the 2015 CONCACAF Under-20 Championship, netted the game’s only goal in the 17th minute.

    Alpha’s best chance of the game came in the 75th minute, when Aldair Paredes’ drive from 25-yards out was tipped acrobatically over the crossbar by goalkeeper Donis Escober.

    Group 5 play resumes on August 19 as the Portland Timbers make the long trip to Guyana to face Alpha United.
