[CONCACAF CHAMPIONS LEAGUE]
In sharp contrast to MLS's troubles in the Concacaf Champions League, the USL enjoyed another banner night when the Puerto Rico Islanders held on for a 2-1 win over Panama's Tauro FC -- the same team that ousted Chivas USA in the qualifying stage -- despite playing the last 21 minutes with 10 players.

Former MetroStar midfielder Petter Villegas and Trinidadian Kendall Jagdeosingh gave the Islanders an early lead. Edwin Aguilar scored for Tauro in the 58th minute.

Eleven minutes later, Puerto Rico lost midfielder James Marcelin with a second yellow card for a foul on Jhoan Melo.

San Francisco, Panama's other entrant in the Champions League, fared better, tying UNAM of Mexico, 1-1.

The USL-1's Montreal Impact opens play on Wednesday when it hosts Joe Public of Trinidad & Tobago.
