first_img(Michael Wyke / Associated Press) PHOENIX, Arizona, CMC – A controversial extra-time penalty goal was all it took to shatter Haiti’s dreams of advancing to the next round of the CONCACAF Gold Cup as they were defeated 1-0 by Mexico in the first semi-final match on July 2.Regular time at State Farm Stadium ended with the scores still locked at nil-all but the game changed in the third minute of the first period of extra time when Herve Bazile was adjudged to have fouled Raul Jimenez with a high boot in the area.Haiti’s Herve Bazile made contact with a full-fledged kick to Jimenez’s foot. On replay, the contact looked soft causing Haitian and American fans to yell with rage from the stans. Haitian players, too, questioned whether it was a penalty or not.The Wolverhampton Wanderers forward then calmly finished low to the right of goalkeeper Jhony Placide to put Mexico ahead for good in the contest.Minutes later, Jimenez almost doubled his side’s advantage when he curled his drive just over the crossbar from 17 yards out and with the pressure intensifying on the Haitian goal, Placide was forced into a one-handed save at point-blank range to deny Rodolfo Pizarro.In the dying moments, Haiti almost snatched the equaliser but substitute Mikael Cantave smashed his curling long-range volley onto the uprights with goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa beaten.Mexico had earlier had the lion share of chances in regular time, Jimenez firing over from six yards out in the 12th minute and Carlos Salcedo blasting wide in the 56th minute.Captain Andres Guardado then forced Placide into an acrobatic save in the 66th minute with a superb free-kick, as Mexico continued to dominate.Mexico, 10-time Gold Cup champions, will meet the winners of Wednesday’s semi-final between Jamaica and six-time champions United States, in Sunday’s final in at Soldier Field in Chicago.last_img read more

first_imgElliott Wins 200th, Argos Pull Out 3-2 Win Over UAH PENSACOLA, Fla. – It was an eventful homecoming night for the West Florida men’s soccer team, as UWF head coach Bill Elliott secured his 200th career men’s soccer win, and the Argonauts scored a game-winner in the 87th minute to down Alabama-Huntsville 3-2 in Gulf South Conference play.  The Argos led 2-0 with 15 minutes to go and allowed UAH back into the game, but senior Daniel Martini (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil/Penn State) scored the go-ahead goal to give UWF the win.“I’ve been lucky enough to be around talented, hard-working players who have had great attitudes as well,” said Elliott.  “UWF has also had great presidents and athletic directors, giving us great support over the years.”West Florida (7-4-2, 4-0 GSC) stayed undefeated in GSC play with the win, as Alabama-Huntsville dropped to 2-10, 1-2 with the loss.After a slow start, the UWF attack started working well late in the second half, resulting in the game’s first goal in the 38th minute.  Junior Alex Dumond (Delray Beach, Fla./Jefferson) sent in a ball from the left sideline, and freshman Jack Salafrio (Gainesville, Fla./Buchholz HS) volleyed the ball past the keeper for the goal.The Argos led 1-0 at halftime, and they added another in the 57th minute.  Martini fired a shot from outside the box, and after it was saved by UAH goalkeeper Tyler Earley, sophomore Will Henderson (Orange Park, Fla./Orange Park HS) was in position to score on the rebound.UAH did not give up, and with 15 minutes to go the Chargers got on the board for the first time.  Tomokai Matsuo combined with Brandon LeMier on a give-and-go to score the Chargers’ first goal, and UAH found an equalizer at the 86:06 mark on a Rob Eckensweiler goal off a corner kick.Just 31 seconds later, the Argos went ahead for good on Martini’s fourth goal of the season.  The senior entered the game as a substitution after the UAH goal, and after the kickoff he whipped a shot from 30 yards off a UAH defender.  Martini collected the rebound of his own shot, and he put the ball over Earley and into the net for the score.UWF controlled the majority of the match, out-shooting the Chargers 27-9.  Senior Elliott Purdom (Wilmslow, England/Viterbo) stopped five shots in goal for UWF, and Earley finished with 10 saves for the Chargers.Coach Elliott now holds a record of 200-95-27 (.663) in 18 seasons as a men’s soccer coach.  He is 183-81-26 (.676) in 16 years at West Florida after totaling a record of 17-4-1 (.547) in two years at Tennessee Wesleyan.  In his 27 combined seasons as a men’s and women’s head coach at West Florida and Tennessee Wesleyan, Elliott now has 315 career wins.Asked how he felt about picking up his 200th men’s soccer win, Elliott joked “I feel old.  Not as old as (UWF women’s soccer) Coach (Joe) Bartlinski though.”UWF will look to close out GSC play undefeated in a Sunday afternoon match against Delta State at 3 p.m. at home on Oct. 17.  For information on all UWF Athletics, visit www.GoArgos.com.
