World Cup Qualifiers: Usa Shuts Out Jamaica

11 at Sporting Park in Kansas City, Kan. The U.S. victory, combined with Costa Rica’s 1-0 loss to Honduras earlier in the evening, made the USA (6-2-1, 19 pts) top the final CONCACAF qualifying group with one match left to play. Following the USA are Costa Rica (4-2-3, 15 points) and Honduras (4-3-2, 14 points). The USA and Costa Rica have qualified for the 2014 FIFA World Cup and Honduras has at least a spot in a playoff against the Oceania region representative New Zealand. Jamaica has now officially been eliminated from World Cup Qualifying contention. With the victory, the USMNT improved to 26-9-6 under head coach Jurgen Klinsmann and 15-3-2 on the year. The 15 victories are a record for a calendar year, topping the previous mark of 13 wins in 2005 and 2009. Excited to see this group coming along, the personalities slowly come through there,” said Klinsmann. “If you look at this year, 2013, its just a tremendous experience for all of us with the fan support every place we play has been sold out.” After a lackluster first half, the USMNT substitutes made the difference in the second half. Sporting Kansas City midfielder Graham Zusi, a halftime substitute for Landon Donovan, was assisted by Alejandro Bedoyato to score the game-winning goal in the 77th minute.

Markets closed USA Truck Files Breach Of Contract Lawsuit Against Knight Transportation Inc. Related To Misuse Of Confidential Information Lawsuit Alleges Knight Used Confidential Information in Connection with Stock Acquisitions in Violation of Confidentiality Agreement Press Release: USA Truck, Inc. Thu, Oct 10, 2013 6:41 PM EDT 9.02 +0.05 VAN BUREN, Ark., Oct. 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ –USA Truck, Inc. ( USAK ), a leading truckload transportation company, stated today that it has filed a breach of contract lawsuit against Knight Transportation Inc. for, among other things, improperly using USA Truck’s confidential information to begin a creeping hostile acquisition of USA Truck at a price that the Board has unanimously concluded does not reflect the Company’s full intrinsic value. (Logo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20110114/DA30069LOGO ) USA Truck’s Board of Directors is taking this action in order to ensure that it can consider a proposed transaction in light of the recent initiatives undertaken by the Company’s new management team and earnings growth prospects without the threat imposed by Knight Transportation’s share acquisitions. The lawsuit seeks to require Knight Transportation to restore a level playing field by divesting the shares it acquired in violation of the Confidentiality Agreement. USA Truck issued the following statement regarding the lawsuit: USA Truck’s Board of Directors is very disappointed that Knight is doing exactly what it promised not to do: use confidential information that it was provided in the context of friendly and private discussions regarding a negotiated transaction between the companies to initiate a creeping hostile takeover of USA Truck at a price that does not reflect the full intrinsic value of USA Truck. As stated in the Company’s release dated September 26, the Company has previously offered to meet with Knight and remains open to all strategic options that reflect the full intrinsic value of USA Truck, including further discussions with Knight. The action, filed in the Circuit Court of Crawford County, in Van Buren, Arkansas, alleges that Knight Transportation’s actions, including its purchasing shares of USA Truck stock, using USA Truck’s confidential information and its disclosure of the prior discussions with USA Truck, are blatant violations of the Confidentiality Agreement between the parties and have disadvantaged the Company’s other stockholders. According to the lawsuit, Knight Transportation’s recent public statements have made clear that Knight Transportation intends to further violate the Confidentiality Agreement by using such confidential information to pursue a hostile takeover of USA Truck without negotiating with USA Truck’s Board of Directors.
