Santos Laguna Shuts Out Rapids In CCL Play; Can Clinch Knockout Phase Berth With Thursday Draw

Aaron Galindo and Jesus Escobaza scored goals 12 minutes apart Wednesday as host Santos Laguna of Mexico played Major League Soccer's defending champion Colorado Rapids to a 2-0 shutout to win Group B in the 2011-12 CONCACAF Champions League tournament with a 4-1-1 record and 13 points and earned a spot in the Knockout Phase, to begin early next year.

The Rapids are in second place in the group pool at 2-3-1 with seven points and, if Isidro Metapan of El Salvador and Spain's Real Espana play to any draw Wednesday, they will move to the Knockout Phase; if not, the game's winner will take over second place.
