W Connection plays for pride
DirecTV W Connection, although out of the running for a spot in the knockout phase, will be seeking to close off its 2013 Concacaf Champions League campaign on a high when it faces Houston Dynamo at the BBVA Compass Stadium, Houston, from 8 pm tonight. Sitting dead last in the table with one draw and two losses from three matches, the Savonetta Boys will be playing for pride against a Dynamo team, which sits second behind Arabe United of Panama. Only the top team from each of the eight groups will progress to the quarterfinal stage. The last time W Connection met Dynamo was in the first leg encounter at the Hasely Crawford Stadium, Port-of-Spain last month, with both teams taking a share of the spoils with a goalless draw.
The match followed W Connection’s group opener which it lost 3-1, away to Arabe Unido in Panama, and was followed by another loss to Arabe, 2-0, at the Hasely Crawford Stadium. Houston will need a win to see it to the top of the standings ahead of its final match, an away fixture against Arabe, which will decide the lone team to advance to the knockout round. Domestically, W Connection and Houston are in contrasting situations with the T&T club in better shape in its local league standings. Connection is off two consecutive wins since the start of the TT Pro League, 7-0 over St Ann’s Rangers and 1-0 over Police FC, which sees it at the top of the standings. Houston is currently fourth in the Major League Soccer (MLS) Eastern Conference, and has picked up two consecutive wins, most recently a 5-1 thrashing of Chivas USA. The final Group One match between Arabe Union and Houston Dynamo will be played at the Estadio Rommel Fernandez Stadium, in Panama City, on October 24.
