Jamaica's Reggae Boyz are on a high at the CONCACAF Gold Cup 2011 in the United States after defeating Honduras 1 - 0 in their Group "B" top of the table clash at the Red Bull Arena in Harrison, New Jersey, Monday night .

Ryan Johnson's 36th minute strike, his second of the tournament, proved to be the decider.

The United States-based striker, who also missed a penalty in the 72nd minute, he tried to explain the miss.

"(The) keeper dived early and my head was down so I didn't see him. I'm disappointed in the penalty kick but at the same time, we got the win and I'm happy. We haven't been scored on in three games and that's exactly what we want to do, we want to continue to be a defensively hard team to break down and we're proven to score goals, so that's what we have to do, all the way," Johnson said.

The win means Jamaica tops Group "B" with maximum 9 points and will play their quarter-final fixture on Sunday, against the runner-up from Group "C", which will be decided on Tuesday.
