[CONCACAF CHAMPIONS LEAGUE: Week 4] Second-half substitutions made by MLS head coaches helped their teams post important results in Concacaf Champions League play Tuesday night.

Sporting Kansas City pulled out a 1-1 tie with Nicaraguan club Real Esteli with a goal by sub Jacob Peterson; Shea Salinas came on to replace one of the Quakes’ goalscorers, Marvin Chavez, and scored himself to finish off a 3-0 defeat of MLS rival Montreal.

After nearly an hour of dominance by SKC at Sporting Park, it fell behind when Rudel Calero nailed a Samuel Wilson corner kick past keeper Eric Kronberg to net Real Esteli’s first goal in CCL group play and the first conceded by the home team. Peterson replaced Soony Saad in the 74th minute, and four minutes later he arrowed to the near post to re-direct a Graham Zusi corner kick for the equalizer.

Keeper Justo Lorente frustrated several SKC attempt to snag a victory, yet still the result keeps SKC (2-0-1) atop Group 2. It needs only a tie against Olimpia of Honduras in its final group match Oct. 23 to advance, if Olimpia can get at least a point out if its match against Real Esteli next week.

Sept. 17 in Kansas City, Kan.
Sporting Kansas City 1 Real Esteli 1.
RS: Rudel Calero (Samuel Wilson) 54.
SKC: Jacob Peterson (Graham Zusi) 78.

San Jose’s big win kept it alive in Group 5 after it had lost its first two games on the road. The Quakes jumped on top in the 20th minute when Steven Lenhart flicked on Dan Gargan’s throw-in and Wondolowski reacted quickest to steer the ball into the net. Chavez doubled the lead in the 57th minute with a searing shot after intercepting a half-clearance, and Salinas got on the board in the 83rd minute, nine minutes after taking over for Chavez.

Guatemalan club Heredia leads the group with a 2-0-0 record. San Jose and Montreal are tied for second at 1-2-0. Heredia will clinch if it gets at least a tie next Tuesday in Montreal, but if the Impact win, the Quakes could force a three-way tie at the top by beating Heredia in the group finale at Buck Shaw Stadium Oct. 23.

Sept. 17 in Santa Clara, Calif.
San Jose Earthquakes 3 Montreal Impact 0.
SJ: Chris Wondolowski (Steven Lenhart, Dan Gargan) 20.
SJ: Marvin Chavez 56.
SJ: Shea Salinas 83.
