[GOLD CUP] Former Florida prep star Fabrice Noel and Puerto Rico Islander teammate James Marcelin scored for Haiti in its 2-0 win over Caribbean rival Grenada in Wednesday's other Group B game at the Gold Cup.

Noel sought political asylum in 2002 after playing with Haiti at a Concacaf U-20 tournament in Charleston, S.C., when he learned his two older brothers had been murdered because he refused to leave Racing Club Haitien for a rival club.

He plays for the Puerto Rico Islanders after having been waived by the Colorado Rapids in 2007.

Noel gave Haiti the lead in the 14th minute on a header, and Marcelin added an insurance goal late in the second half.
