KINGSTON, Jamaica, Sept. 7, 2012 - Former James Madison men's soccer player Joel Senior saw playing time in Jamaica's 2-1 win over the U.S. Men's National Team Friday.

The former Dukes midfielder entered the match in the 83rd minute.

The game, played at National Stadium, was part of the Group A Semifinal Round of 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifying.

USA's Clint Dempsey scored the game's first goal in 35 seconds for the fastest World Cup qualifying goal in USA men's national team history, but Jamaica rallied with back-to-back set piece goals.

Jamaica took sole possession of first place in the group with a 2-0-1 record and seven points, while the USA fell to 1-1-1 with four points. The U.S. has never won a World Cup qualifier match in Jamaica, posting four draws in the previous four meetings.

The U.S. and Jamaica resume FIFA World Cup qualifying when the teams meet at 8 p.m. ET on Tuesday, Sept. 11, at a sold-out Columbus Crew Stadium in Columbus, Ohio. The match will be broadcast live on ESPN2, ESPN3 and Galavision.  Fans can also follow the match live on ussoccer.com's MatchTracker and via Twitter @ussoccer.

Senior, a native of Jamaica, was a two-year starter for the Dukes in the 2008 and 2009 seasons. He earned All-Colonial Athletic Association Third Team honors in 2009.
