La Liga de Las Americas

Dep. Holanda wins soccer championship

TOLEDO, Oct. 1, 2006: Dep. Holanda won La Liga de Las América’s soccer championship Sunday, defeating Central Arcenal of Adrian, 2 to 1. Dep. Holanda struck early, with a goal by Lalo Alcala, who once played for Chivas. Lalo scored the second goal later in the first half.

El Tri of Bowling Green defeated Toledo Sports Club, 5 to 3 in penalty kicks, giving it third place in this twelve-team, Michigan-Ohio conference. The score was 2 to 2 after regulation play, followed by a 4 to 4 tie after the overtime period.

Toledo Sports Club, which finished fourth, had won the league’s championship for the past three years, defeating Dep. Latinos each year. Dep. Latinos changed its name this season to Dep. Holanda and had the highest goals scored in the league and the least goals scored against it. Its goalkeeper, Billy Stoner, received an award for the fewest goals scored against a team (33 goals).

COLUMBUS (AP): The Columbus Crew were eliminated from Major League Soccer playoff contention despite beating FC Dallas 3-1 Saturday on goals by Joseph Ngwenya, Jacob Thomas and Jason Garey.

Columbus will miss the playoffs for the second straight year as a result of the New York Red Bulls' 1-0 win over the Chicago Fire.
Dallas had already clinched a playoff spot.

In other matches, the New England Revolution clinched its fifth straight playoff sport with a 3-1 win over the Colorado rapids, the Houston Dynamo beat D.C. United 1-0, Real Salt Lake drew 3-3 with the Kansas City Wizards and the Los Angeles Galaxy downed Chivas USA 3-0.

Ngwenya gave Columbus the lead with his fourth goal of the season in the 22nd minute, assisted by Garey and Crew defender Ritchie Kotschau.

Thomas doubled the Crew's lead with his first goal of the season, a low, right-footed shot from 30 yards that Dallas goalkeeper Shaka Hislop put a hand to but was unable to keep out of the back of the net in the 66th minute. Garey sealed the win for Columbus 10 minutes later with his fourth tally of the year.

Chivas USA fell into third place in the Western Conference.

Chivas USA played without three of its top five scorers. Ante Razov, Juan Pablo García and Francisco Palencia all missed the game because of injuries. The three have combined for 26 of Chivas USA’s 43 goals.
