Short-handed U.S. rallies past Panama

Sports - Worn down and undermanned, the United States found a way to rally. Now the Americans remain in position to win their third straight CONCACAF Gold Cup. Kenny Cooper converted a penalty kick in the 105th minute, giving the two-time defending champions a 2-1 victory over Panama and a semifinal berth against Honduras, which beat Canada 1-0 in the opener of yesterday's doubleheader in Philadelphia. With just one regular in the starting lineup and down a goal early, U.S. coach Bob Bradley told his team at the first break that it was time to get going and play like defending champions. “Bob told us, 'All right, we're in a tough one,' ” midfielder Kyle Beckerman said. “He told everybody to step up and play better, and we'll get our chances.” Blas Perez put Panama ahead in first-half stoppage time, but Beckerman tied the score in the 49th. In today's quarterfinal doubleheader, Guadeloupe meets Costa Rica and Mexico faces Haiti in the first sporting event at the Dallas Cowboys' new stadium in Arlington, Texas. The semifinals are Thursday in Chicago.
