Men's Olympic soccer kicked off this morning, and Jerry Bengtson was in action with Honduras. Los Catrachos faced off against Morocco in Group D action at Hampden Park and came away with a 2-2 draw, with both Honduras goals scored by our boy Jerry.

After Morocco opened the scoring in the 39th minute with a volley from Abdelaziz Barrada, Honduras took over. Maynor Figueroa made a run down the left and blasted in a shot that Jerry redirected into the net. It was a poacher's goal (at least it sounded like one; I didn't see highlights) that seems typical of the sort of scoring that can be expected from Bengtson in a New England Revolution uniform as well.

Bengtson then put away a penalty in the 65th minute, firing Honduras into the lead and doubling his own tally for the tournament. Morocco equalized, however, and despite going a man up when Zakarya Bergdich was sent off in the 72nd minute, Honduras couldn't find a winner.

Bengtson was removed in the 78th minute. Honduras next plays on Sunday against tournament-favorites Spain in Newcastle. That match should be televised nationally.
