For the third time in two months Honduras put up a fight, but for the third time it wasn't enough.

The U.S. national team scored a goal just before halftime, and held Honduras' in check the rest of the way before a Kenny Cooper insurance goal helped give the United States a 2-0 victory in the Gold Cup semifinals on Thursday night.

The win, coupled with Mexico's penalty kick victory vs. Costa Rica sets up a rematch of the 2007 Gold Cup final, which the United States won, 2-1.

Clarence Goodson's header goal seconds before halftime ultimately proved to be the difference for a U.S. team seeking its third straight Gold Cup title.
