    HOUSTON – In a battle of 2014 World Cup qualifiers, Carlo Costly scored two goals and Honduras played Ecuador to a 2-2 friendly draw on Tuesday at BBVA Compass Stadium. 

    The second-half substitute tallied twice during a five-minute stretch to thrust the Catrachos ahead, but Enner Valencia leveled in the 89th minute to complete the scoreline.

    Both sides played the latter portions of the second half with only 10 men.

    Ecuador’s Juan Carlos Paredes was ejected in 76th minute and Wilson Palacios followed with six minutes left in regulation time. 

    Jaime Ayovi gave the South Americans a 1-0 lead in the 15th minute, using his head to redirect Walter Ayovi’s free kick from 23-yards out just inside the right post.

    In the 63rd minute, Jerry Palacios laid off an intelligent pass just inside the box for Costly, who was racing down the middle.  In stride, the Guizhou Zhicheng forward took a touch and then calmly placed the ball into the lower-right corner of the net.

    Four minutes later, the commanding 31-year-old received a long ball on the right side, cut into the box, skillfully froze his defender and curled a sublime shot into upper-left corner from 16 yards.

    Just when it appeared that it Honduras would bounce back from 5-0 loss to Brazil a few days earlier, Valencia beat goalkeeper Noel Valladares from 25-yards out with a right-footed rocket to make it 2-2.
