[CONCACAF CHAMPIONS LEAGUE] The Seattle Sounders won at Trinidad & Tobago's Caledonia AIA, 3-1, on Thursday night, and the short-handed Houston Dynamo earned a point in Tegucigalpa, Honduras, with a 1-1 tie against Olimpia. After three days of play, the Sounders, Dynamo and Los Angeles are in good shape to advance, while Real Salt Lake and Toronto FC trail in their groups.

Alex Caskey, Sammy Ochoa and Fredy Montero all scored a goal and an assist for the Sounders, who took a five-point lead of Group 4 with just two games to play. Caledonia is eliminated with just one point through three games.
 
The Dynamo trailed on a low, diving header from Douglas Caetano in the 7th minute but equalized in the 57th minute on Adam Moffat's header off Nathan Sturgis' cross.

Sturgis was shortly thereafter sent off for a late challenge.

Olimpia had a chance to win in stoppage time, but Juan Ramon Ramirez hit the post.
