ATLANTA (AP) - Gabriel Torres scored two goals in the first half to help Panama beat 10-man Cuba 6-1 in the quarterfinals of the Gold Cup on Saturday.
Panama, which has three wins and a tie in four Gold Cup games this year, advanced to the semifinals next week in Dallas.
Torres, whose penalty kick in the 25th minute tied it at 1, gave Panama a 2-1 lead 13 minutes later.
Blas Perez assisted on the goal by heading Gabriel Gomez's crossing pass to Torres, who kept the ball from touching the ground and used his right foot to beat goalkeeper Odelin Molina on the right side from 8 yards out.
Torres has five goals in four Gold Cup games. He scored twice in Panama's 2-1 group stage win over Mexico.
