Honduras battles back for draw

23 March 2013-PA Sport

Honduras struck twice in the final 14 minutes to salvage a 2-2 draw from its CONCACAF World Cup qualifier against Mexico in San Pedro Sula.

Manchester United forward Javier Hernandez had put the Tri in the driving seat with goals either side of the interval, the first a header from Andres Guardado's long ball and the second a rebound after Carlos Salcido's free-kick had hit the bar.

However, Carlo Costly halved the deficit for the host in the 77th minute when he headed home a corner and, three minutes later, Jerry Bengtson snaffled the rebound after Mexico goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa had saved his penalty.

The result kept Honduras top of the fledgling standings on four points after two games, while for Manuel De la Torre's side it was a second straight draw.

In snowy Denver, Clint Dempsey's 16th-minute strike was enough for the United States to sink Costa Rica 1-0, the Tottenham man seizing on a loose ball and grabbing the game's only goal to give Jurgen Klinsmann's side their first win of the qualifying campaign.

Finally, Jamaica drew 1-1 with Panama in Kingston.

The host took the lead midway through the first half through defender Marvin Elliott's header, but they were pegged back by Luis Henriquez's superb long-range effort in the 65th minute.
