MEXICO CITY – Santa Ana outlasted Comunicaciones 5-4 on penalty kicks to capture the 2016 Scotiabank CONCACAF Under-13 Champions League title after their final ended in a 0-0 draw on Saturday at the Universidad Intercontinental.

Armando Ramos initiated a run of five straight successfully converted penalty kicks, followed by Denys Soriano, Marlon Fabian, Florentin Alvarez and Orssi Rodriguez.

In the match for third place, Alejandro Corrales scored in the 45th minute and Alajuelense earned a 1-0 win over Sporting Kanas City.
