Honduras -0 Guatemala-0: Gold Cup

The first 35 minutes of the Gold Cup Group B match between Honduras and Guatemala has been full of chances without a goal and the Catrachos just came the closest to tallying through Oscar Garcia. The winger has been a thorn in the Guatemalans’ side from the start and now is abusing the crossbar as much as he is the opposing defense.

Garcia found space 20 yards from goal and with Guatemala refusing to close down on him, he decided to have a go at goal. The result was an almost fantastic goal and he struck the ball with great pace and had the goalkeeper beaten, only to see it hit the cross bar. It bounced back off of the prone goalkeeper on the turf, but not back towards the goal and the Hondurans are forced to deal the match remaining scoreless.

Neither team has shown much defending in the early going and the match is being played at a great pace. The teams are just trading chances in what might not be the most well-played of matches, but certainly one of the more entertaining ones.

    Our Catrachos let this match get away. They had that two man advantage in the second half, but couldn’t score. A draw is better than a loss, but they need to win big against Grenada. If not, then the Jamacia match on the 13th is all for nothing.

    Go Catrachos!
