    NEW YORK - W Connection of Trinidad beat Bath Estate of Dominica 5-0 on Wednesday, opening its bid for a third Caribbean Club Champions Cup title with an impressive victory away from home.

    In another game Wednesday, Ives Vlijter scored a pair of second-half goals to lift Suriname's Inter Mangoe Tapoe to a 3-1 victory over CSD Barber in the Netherlands Antilles. Edgard Cassiani gave CSD Barber a brief lead in the 34th, but Sirano Amoeferie equalized for Inter three minutes later. The first legs of the three remaining series are set for later this week. On Saturday, Alpha United of Guayana will host Haiti's Tempete FC, and Sevilla FC of Puerto Rico will be at home against the Green Bay Hoppers of Antigua.
