Alpha pipped by Olympia!
— Local side loses opening game of CONCACAF Champions League by 0-1 scoreline
Alpha United got their CONCACAF Champions League campaign off to the worst possible start, narrowly going down to Club Deportivo Olimpia of Honduras by a 1-0 margin yesterday at the National Stadium Providence.
Albert Elis separated the two sides with a fortuitous 17th minute conversion. Winners of the event twice in the year of 1972 and 1988 respectively, the visitors started the opening half the brighter of the two sides and silenced the partisan crowd through Elis.
