Haitian side Tempete FC became the third team to reach the semifinals of the Caribbean club championship, outlasting Caledonia AIA of Trinidad on penalties after a 1-0 loss.

Sunday's result in St. Marc, Haiti, left the two sides tied on aggregate 1-1, sending the series to the tiebreaker where Tempete prevailed 3-2. Tempete joins Guyana's Alpha United and Trinidad's Defence Force in the semifinals. Three teams will qualify from the Caribbean Club Champions Cup for next season's CONCACAF Champions League.
The remaining club to reach the semifinals will be either the defending champion Puerto Rico Islanders or Walking Boyz of Suriname. The Islanders needed an injury time strike by Jamie Cunningham on Saturday to earn a 1-1 draw with Walking Boyz in the first leg of their second-round encounter.
The second leg is set for Bayamon, Puerto Rico, on Saturday.
In St. Marc, Haiti, Akim Armstrong's goal in the sixth minute equalized for Caledonia, but Kareem Joseph, Daniel Cyrus and Nuru Muhammad failed convert their penalty shootout chances.
Chedlin Francouer was credited with the winning penalty after Eliphene Cadet and Wisnick Germinor converted their chances.
