Honduras scored their first goal in the 36'. A Wilmer Crisanto cross was deflected into the air by Antony Lozano. Eddie Hernandez of BK Hacken of the Swedish League was able to get underneath the ball and head it in. This goal all but assured Honduras going through, as a draw would not be enough for Trinidad and Tobago.

The second Honduran goal came in the 69', in a reversal of the first. Eddie Hernandez found Antony Lozano in front of goal and Lozano was able to nudge in a goal that fans at the Home Depot Center were mildly thrilled by. Most in attendance were here for the second match, when Mexico is set to take on Panama.

Baring a miracle, Mexico and Canada will face off in semi-final one, to be held on March 31st. The second match of the evening will feature El Salvador taking on Honduras, ensuring that a Central American team will be represented in the Olympics.
