Caledonia AIA Vs. Marathon, 2012 CONCACAF Champions League: Final Score 0-0, Zzzzzzzzz

Well, that wasn't exactly the prettiest game of football ever played. Caledonia AIA played Marathon in a CONCACAF Champions League group stage match in Trinidad and Tobago, and it's fair to say that neither team set the world on fire in their 0-0 draw.

The visitors were by and large the better side early on, creating a number of chances, but to say that they lacked a cutting edge would be doing a grave disservice to blunt objects around the world. Not even Caledonia goalkeeper Glenroy Samuel's ill-judged forays to the outskirts of the pitch resulted in a goal, although they were at least rather funny -- at one point he was booked for a tackle on Mitchell Brown at the corner flag.

The closest Marathon came to scoring turned out to be via the head of Brown, who along with Randy Diamond was one of the brighter players on the pitch. In the second half, Brown stumbled in the box while looking to shoot, but bounced back up onto his feet in time to receive a cross and smack the subsequent header off the goalpost.

The hosts got into the match towards the end of the ninety minutes, taking advantage of Marathon's habit of pushing black shirts upfield and launching several counterattacks. They ended very well, with Conrad Smith and Cornelius Stewart peppering Jose Mendoza's goal in the final few minutes. Ultimately, however, it wasn't enough for the win, and it's Marathon who'll be slightly happier about getting the draw on the road.
