Mancilla leads Toluca past D.C. United in CCL

WASHINGTON -- Hector Mancilla scored twice in the final 12 minutes to help Toluca beat D.C. United 3-1 on Wednesday, helping its chances of advancing from the CONCACAF Champions League group stages.

Mancilla broke a 1-all tie in the 79th minute, shaking D.C. defender Marc Burch with three quick, right-footed touches before blasting a 12-yard effort inside the left post. He tapped in his second goal into an empty net 6 minutes later when D.C.'s Julius James failed to clear Nestor Calderon's low cross.

"I just had three dribbles and I turned to shoot it," Mancilla said through a translator. "It was a good shot."

Vladimir Marin also scored early for Toluca (2-0 Group B), which will now play three of its last four group matches at home.

Chris Pontius' header had tied it 2 minutes after halftime for United (0-2). D.C., the 2008 U.S. Open Cup champions, get a rematch with last year's Mexican fall champions on Oct. 20 in Mexico for the final game of group play.

"Obviously it's not a good place to be," said United coach Tom Soehn, whose team must improve drastically to finish first or second in the four-team group and reach March's quarterfinals. "We always talk about making sure you take care of your home games. We sure didn't take care of business tonight."

Toluca led 1-0 in the fifth minute when Marin tapped the ball into an empty net after and earlier United blunder. Goalkeeper Josh Wicks charged to collect Zinha's diagonal ball, only to fumble it off defender David Habaruguira and into Marin's path.

Toluca won this tournament's predecessor, the CONCACAF Champions Cup, in 1968 and 2003. D.C. United, which is now 0-7-3 all-time in the two-year-old Champions League, won the Champions Cup in 1998.
