Skepple leads Antigua past Haiti 1-0

Kerry Skepple scored in the 83rd minute to give Antigua &

Barbuda a vital 1-0 win over Haiti in a World Cup qualifier on

Friday.

The result meant Antigua clinched a spot in the four-team

semifinal group that starts play in June and also includes the

United States, Jamaica and Guatemala. The top two nations from that

group advance to the six-nation final group that begins play in

2013.

Antigua plays Haiti again in Port-Au-Prince on Tuesday.
