    Valencia, W Connection qualify for CCL

    KINGSTON, Jamaica - Haiti's Valencia FC qualified for the 2013-14 edition of the CONCACAF Champions League (CCL) after a hard-fought 0-0 draw with nine-man Boys' Town, completing Group Two play on Tuesday with a table-topping seven points.

    In the evening's opener at the Anthony Spaulding Sports Complex, Jamaica's Portmore United defeated Bayamon FC of Puerto Rico 5-0 to finish as runner-up with six points, two ahead of Boys' Town.

    Portmore will enter into a two-legged playoff with Caledonia AIA of Trinidad & Tobago, the Group One second-place side for the Caribbean's third and final CCL berth.

    The marquee match-up between Valencia and Boys' Town may not have produced any goals, but it was full of action. Renae Lloyd (68') and substitute Adrian King (90') were both ejected, leaving the Jamaicans down two players.

    Meanwhile, in the curtain-raiser, Jamaica under-20 midfielder Paul Wilson came off the bench midway through the second half and netted goals in the 81st and 90th minutes to propel Portmore United to victory over Bayamon.

    Sue-Lae McCalla gave Portmore the lead on the stroke of half time before Ricardo Morris doubled the advantage five minutes after the break.

    Jamaican international Ewan Grandison got on the scoresheet in the 84th minute with a powerful strike from just outside the box.


    In Couva, Trinidad, W Connection and Antigua Barracuda FC played to a 0-0 draw at the Ato Boldon Stadium, giving the Trinidadian side four points, the Group One title and a place in the 2013-14 CONCACAF Champions League (CCL). It will be W Connection's second straight appearance in the confederation's annual club championship and third overall.

    Group runner-up Caledonia AIA finished with three points, and will face Portmore United in a two-legged playoff for the Caribbean's last CCL berth.
