MANAGUA, Nicaragua – Moravia scored a pair of second-half goals to earn a 2-0 win over UNAN Managua in the 2017 Central American Women’s Inter-Club Championship final on Saturday at the Estadio Nacional.

The Costa Rican side retained the title, also beating Guatemala’s UNIFUT, 1-0, in the first-ever decider last year.

Cristin Granados scored the first goal in the 52nd minute, followed by Yerli Rojas’ insurance tally 15 minutes later.

Moravia completed the competition with an overall record of 3W-0D-1L, while Nicaragua’s UNAN posted a 2-1-1 mark.

NOTES: In the match for third place, Nicaragua’s Aguilas de Leon saw a two-goal lead slip away, but it still managed to defeat UPNFM, 3-2, on Jessenia Flores’ 70th-minute winner.  Ninoska Solis (7’) and Rosa Jimenez (29’) gave Aguilas a 2-0 advantage at halftime, but the Honduran champion stormed back to level through Riccy Hernandez (53’) and Krystal Ortega (64’).
