Guatemala Gets Past Canada in World Cup

Associated Press

Canada defeated Guatemala, 3-2, in World Cup soccer qualifying action Saturday, but Guatemala will advance to the next round because of a complicated goals differential rule to break ties.

Canada edged Guatemala, 3-2, but lost the home-and-home series, 1-0, last weekend at Guatemala City. Guatemala advanced because away goals count double if the series is tied.

Dale Mitchell scored twice for Canada.
