CCL: 'Caps win sets up big Cascadia showdown

A first-half goal from Kianz Froese gave the Vancouver Whitecaps a 1-0 win over Honduran champion Olimpia that moved them into a tie for first place with the Seattle Sounders in their Scotiabank Concacaf Champions League group.



CCL Week 4, Results:
WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 16
W Connection (TRI) 2 Saprissa (CRC) 1
Vancouver Whitecaps 1 Olimpia (HON) 0

The result sets up a big showdown next Wednesday between the Sounders and 'Caps in Seattle. If there is a winner in that game, it will win the group.

If Seattle and Vancouver draw, the result will eliminate the Sounders, but the group finale between Vancouver and Olimpia in Tegucigalpa in October will decide the group winner.
