[HEXAGONAL: Day 3] Just how quickly things can change in the Hexagonal were evident by Tuesday's results. Panama, which blew a 2-0 lead at home in its opening game against Costa Rica and had to settle for a 2-2 tie, finds itself the surprise leader after a 2-0 win over Honduras. Jamaica opened with a stunning 0-0 tie against Mexico at Azteca Stadium in February but now languishes in the cellar after a 2-0 loss at Costa Rica.

Former MLS player Michael Umana put the Ticos ahead in the 22nd minute and Costa Rica clinched the win over the Reggae Boyz on a goal by Diego Calvo in the 82nd minute.

Luis Tejada and FC Dallas striker Blas Perez scored for Panama, whose coach, Julio Cesar Dely Valdes, was suspended for the game.

Another former MLS player, Carlo Costly, will rue his missed opportunities for the Catrachos. He hit the crossbar in the first half and was stopped by 22-year-old Panamanian keeper Luis Mejia.
