Brad Evans saved the United States from another deflating World Cup qualifier on the road. Leroy Sane Jersey . Jermaine Beckford tied the score in the 89th minute as the American defence again stumbled on a restart. But Evans scored an unlikely goal in the second minute of second-half stoppage time, giving the U.S. a thrilling 2-1 win over Jamaica at Kingston on Friday night that solidified the Americans chances of qualifying for next years World Cup. "It was a totally blind shot," Evans said. "The only thing in my mind was turn and shoot. That was it." Jozy Altidore scored for the second straight game, putting the Americans ahead in the 30th minute with a header off Graham Zusis cross. They had scored the first goal in four of five previous road qualifiers under coach Jurgen Klinsmann but were only 1-2-1 in those matches. It looked as if they would drop points again when an unmarked Beckford beat goalkeeper Tim Howard with a close-range header from Rodolph Austins 40-yard free kick. In wasting an early lead during a semifinal-round loss at Jamaica last September, the U.S. allowed both goals off corner kicks. But just over a minute into four minutes of stoppage time, Michael Bradley quickly played an American corner kick short to Zusi. He gave the ball right back, and Bradley faked around Alvas Powell and slid a left-footed shot to Evans. Evans had his back to the goal with Beckford, OBrian Woodbine and Daniel Gordon about 5 yards from him when he stopped the ball with his left foot. He then turned and kicked the ball with his right foot over goalkeeper Donovan Ricketts from about 8 yards, a shot that may have taken a slight deflection of the sliding Woodbine. "Pure elation after the goal, for sure," said Evans, who received a yellow card for pulling his jersey over his head. "I had no idea it was stoppage time." It was the first goal in 10 international appearances for Evans, a midfielder starting at right back. Evans got the start because Steve Cherundolo is resting after a knee injury sidelined him from December to April, and Timmy Chandler tore a left knee ligament last month. "It makes travelling a little easier," Klinsmann said. "Whats important is that this team now gets more and more the mentality to bounce back and to kind challenge themselves to win here, not to look for a tie. We said that from the beginning, we are ready now to come into a difficult place like Kingston and say we want the three points." Starting a stretch of three qualifiers in 12 days, the U.S. (2-1-1) improved to seven points in the 10-game final round of the North and Central American and Caribbean region, trailing Costa Rica (2-1-1) on goal difference and ahead of Mexico (1-0-4) on goals scored. Costa Rico won 1-0 at home against Honduras on a goal by the New York Red Bulls Roy Miller, and Mexico tied 0-0 at Panama (1-0-3), which has six points. Honduras (1-2-1) has four points and the Reggae Boyz (0-3-2) have two, with little chance of reaching next years tournament in Brazil. "We are obviously disappointed," Jamaica coach Theodore Whitmore said. The Americans host Panama on Tuesday on Evans home field with the Major League Soccers Seattle Sounders, then play Honduras on June 18 at Sandy, Utah. The top three nations qualify for next years 32-nation tournament in Brazil, and the No. 4 team meets New Zealand in a playoff for another berth. "The script couldnt have been better with Brad Evans then, going out to Seattle," Klinsmann said. Coaching his 28th game since taking over from Bob Bradley in July 2011, Klinsmann started the same lineup in consecutive matches for the first time with the U.S. But three in a row wont happen. Jermaine Jones, the tough American midfielder, sustained a concussion when elbowed by Daniel Gordon during a corner-kick scramble early in the 56th minute, and Altidore walked off gingerly in the 83rd minute and pointed to his left hamstring. Zusi was given a caution for his foul 40 yards out that led to Austins free kick and Jamaicas goal, and he will be suspended Tuesday for yellow-card accumulation. Bradley nearly scored in the second minute, sending a 20-yard right-footed shot off the post to the right of Ricketts. Altidores goal came after Zusi streaked down the right side and got by Woodbine. Altidore split Gordon and Powell and beat Ricketts with a header from just inside the 6-yard box. It was the 15th goal in 58 appearances for Altidore, who combined with Zusi on the first goal in Sundays 4-3 exhibition win over Germany at Washington, D.C., Altidores first goal for the national team since November 2011. Austin hit a post to Howards right in the 39th. The U.S. had been 0-4-1 in qualifiers at The Office, as Kingstons stadium is known. "Its a very, very difficult place to come in," Klinsmann said. "They gave us a real fight." Costa Rica beat Honduras 1-0 thanks to a 25th minute goal by New York Red Bulls defender Roy Miller. The result left Honduras in fifth place, two points behind Panama, who secured a creditable home draw against Mexico. Jamaica is last in the group with just two points from five games, leaving the Reggae Boyz a mountain to climb in the remaining five qualifying matches. The next round of games is on Tuesday when Mexico hosts Costa Rica, Honduras is at home against Jamaica and Panama travels to take on the United States. Anthony Martial Jersey . -- Jonathan Drouin gave Halifax the boost it needed to edge host Sherbrooke Phoenix 3-2 in a shootout in Quebec Major Junior Hockey League action. Eliaquim Mangala Jersey . Vettel was 0.168 seconds faster than Red Bull teammate Mark Webber around the Suzuka circuit. Mercedes driver Nico Rosberg was two tenths of a second off Vettel. "The car balance is decent, but I think we can still improve," Vettel said. . -- Gus Malzahn finally had his day in Fayetteville.SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Logan Couture scored on a power play 3:28 into overtime to give the San Jose Sharks a 3-2 win over the Phoenix Coyotes on Saturday night. Coutures winner gave the Sharks their second victory of the preseason just 32 seconds after the Coyotes were called for having too many men on the ice. Oliver Ekman-Larsson gave the Coyotes a 1-0 lead with 9:52 left in the first when he got a wrist shot past Harri Sateri. Just 52 seconds into the second, the Sharks capitalized on a four-minute doublee-minor penalty to Chris Brown and tied it up when Freddie Hamilton quickly scored on a power play. Kelley OHara Jersey. Jason Demers gave San Jose a 2-1 lead when he scored on a power play with 8:23 remaining in the second as he was able to skip the puck past Mike Smith. Phoenix evened the score with 31 seconds left in the second when Andy Miele converted a power play. Sateri is trying to win a spot on San Joses roster as the backup to regular goalie Antti Niemi.
