[CONCACAF CHAMPIONS LEAGUE] Real Salt Lake became the first MLS team to win a Concacaf Champions League match in the group stage on the road this season when it beat Panama's Arabe Unido, 3-2, and took over first place in Group A. The Seattle Sounders also appeared headed to victory on the road, but Mexico's Monterrey blitzed them for three goals in four minutes and won, 3-2.

After falling behind in the second minute, RSL scored three unanswered goals -- two by Will Johnson and one by Alvaro Saborio -- to take a 3-1 lead at halftime and then held off Arabe Unido to take over first place in Group A with its three win in four games.

The Sounders started a reserve team but were on the verge of becoming the first MLS team to win a Concacaf match in Mexico when they took a 2-0 lead on an own goal in the 27th minute and Michael Fucito's goal just before halftime and held off Monterrey deep into the second half.

But everything went wrong, beginning in the 74th minute when defenderZach Scott played Aldo De Nigris onside, allowing him to head home a rebound after Chilean World Cup star Humberto Suazo's shot was well saved by Terry Boss.

A minute later, Suazo, a second-half substitute, broke free thanks to a back heel from De Negris to the far post.

Boss then took down Suazo in the area, and Luis Perez completed Monterrey's comeback with the winning goal from the penalty spot in the 77th minute.

The loss was the fourth in four games for Seattle.
