U.S. U-17s defeat Honduras to top Group A

The U.S. under-17 men's national team defeated Honduras 3-0 to take the top place in Group A of the CONCACAF U-17 Championship. The win gave head coach Wilmer Cabrera's team a perfect three wins from three games.

With a berth to the 2009 FIFA U-17 World Cup in Nigeria already secured, Cabrera changed his lineup and used six new starters against Honduras. Nicholas Palodichuk, who had not played in either of the first two games, scored the first and third goals for the U.S. Jack McInerney added a goal in the 28th minute, bringing his total to a tournament-high five goals in three games.

"It was a pretty match," Cabrera said in a U.S. Soccer Federation news release. "We had six players play who were not starters, and with the other five players, we confronted a Honduran team who knew they had qualified already, and that probably changed their perspective of the game.

"Our first objective was to qualify for the World Cup. Our second objective was to play the greatest number of players possible. We have accomplished our tasks, and we have done it by winning."

Honduras also had sealed its place in Nigeria before taking the field, as Canada's loss to Cuba was enough to give the Central American nation one of the top two places in Group A.

The U.S. improved its record against Honduras at the U-17 level to 6-0-0, dating back to the regional championship in 1983.
