What Focus Area mode did you use? Auto Area, Single Point or 3D?

I think you should have used 3D, selected the right AF area using the multi-selector and then shot. The 3D would help to follow the any movement in the subject and should hold the focus point on the area you selected.

The OP has already stated his/her focus set-up. I would never use 3D for that shot.
