Honduras 2 - Jamaica 0

Tegucigalpa and its home support were behind Honduras as last-place Jamaica paid a visit.  Alvas Powell cleared a ball off the line with his head early to spare Jamaica, but the Catrachos had set the tone.  Roger Espinoza received a short corner for Honduras and swung in a cross that was headed back toward where it came by Roger Rojas.  Boniek Garcia (pictured, white) pounced on the ball and put away the opening goal for Honduras ten minutes into the match.  Jamaica goalkeeper Donovan Ricketts was made to parry a low shot by Mario Martinez late in the half. Honduras were up 1-0 going into their locker room.

Ricketts did all he could to keep the flood gates from opening onto the Jamaican goal.  It did not help that defender Adrian Mariappa was sent off for Jamaica due to a second yellow in minute 76.  With two minutes to go, an awful pass intended for Ricketts was played by Daniel Gordon.  Rojas easily picked off the pass and touched around Ricketts before rolling the ball softly into the empty net.  Honduras win 2-0.

Boniek Garcia 10
