Colombia kept alive their hopes of advancing to the quarterfinals of the CONCACAF Gold Cup with a 2-0 victory over Trinidad and Tobago on Tuesday. Colombia pressed throughout, dominating the first half and continuously testing Trinidad goalkeeper Kelvin Jack. Jack thwarted Colombia repeatedly. He blocked shots from Aldo Leao Ramirez in the 20th and 36th minutes and Martin Arzuaga in the 36th minute. Jaime Castrillon twice missed with efforts in the 17th and 44th minutes. Jack raced off his line to deflect Arzuaga's shot near the six-yard box in the 58th minute. Aguilar finally gave Colombia the lead in the 75th minute. Hector Hurtado secured victory with Colombia's second goal in the 78th minute. Arzuaga crossed to an unmarked Hurtado, who raced to the left of the penalty area and beat Jack just inside the far post. (AP)
