FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) -- David Suazo's tiebreaking penalty kick in the 87th minute gave Honduras a 3-2 victory over Guatemala in the first of a two-match set between CONCACAF teams Saturday night.
Suazo's successful conversion landed high inside the right post and culminated a Honduran comeback from a two-goal halftime deficit before a capacity crowd of 19,173 at Lockhart Stadium.
Guatemala's Rigoberto Gomez fouled Emil Martinez inside the penalty area, resulting in Suazo's winning goal.
Honduras began its rally on Milton Nunez's successful penalty conversion in the 52nd minute. Eric Vallecillo was fouled inside the penalty area ending with Nunez's kick.
Julio Leon tied the match when his shot from 35 yards beat Guatemalan goalkeeper Ricardo Trigueno in the 69th minute.
Dwight Pazzarossi scored the game's opening goal in the 27th minute. Pazzarossi received Guillermo Ramirez's crossing pass from Guillermo Ramirez and beat Honduran goalkeeper Noel Valladares with a sliding shot which landed inside the right post.
Guatemala struck again on Marvin Avila's goal in the 32nd minute. An unmarked Avila found a loose ball deep in the left wing area and blasted a shot which landed high inside the far post.
Seeking to reduce the deficit, Honduras' Victor Bernardez unloaded an elevated shot from 40 yards which seemed headed inside the left post but Trigueno jumped to deflect Bernardez's blast in the 39th minute.
Avila had Guatemala's first scoring threat of the match in the ninth minute after Honduras goalkeeper Noel Valladares deflected Avila's arching shot from the left wing before it landed inside the near post.
Leon nearly put Honduras ahead 13 minutes later on a free kick from 30 yards which bounced off the outside netting on the left post.
Both teams will play the second set of the matches Tuesday in Atlanta. The winner of the points total series will be awarded the Central American Cup.
