    MACOYA, Trinidad - Honduras beat St. Vincent & the Grenadines 3-1 on Monday to claim the last berth in the CONCACAF Under-20 Championship, rallying with goals by Roger Rojas, Mario Martinez and Erick Andino in the final 16 minutes.

    The one-game playoff between the third-place finisher in Central America and the Caribbean Championship runner-up completes the eight-team field for the CONCACAF event beginning Friday.

    Honduras will join El Salvador, Jamaica and the United States in Group A. Canada, Costa Rica, Mexico and host Trinidad & Tobago will make up the other group.

    Cornelius Stewart gave St. Vincent the lead in the 23rd minute, converting a penalty. Rojas equalized in the 74th before Martinez scored six minutes later and Andino added the insurance with a minute left in regulation play.

    Rojas' goal came seven minutes after St. Vincent was reduced to 10 men when Stewart received a second yellow card and expulsion.
