KINGSTON, Jamaica, Oct. 16, 2012 - Former James Madison men's soccer player Joel Senior played more than a third of the game in Jamaica's 4-1 win over Antigua and Barbuda Tuesday night.
The former Dukes midfielder entered the World Cup qualifying match in the 58th minute at National Stadium.
With the win Jamaica joined the United States, Panama, Honduras, Costa Rica and Mexico in advancing to the fourth and final round of CONCACAF qualifying.
In the fourth round, the three group winners and three group runners-up from the third round compete in a single group of six teams. This stage is often referred to as the "hexagonal" and has been used by CONCACAF to determine its World Cup finals entrants since the 1998 World Cup.
The hexagonal matches are scheduled to be played between Feb. 6 and Oct. 15 of next year. The top three teams will advance to the World Cup finals tournament in Brazil, and the fourth-place team will advance to a play-off against the winner of the Oceania qualifiers.
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.
