GEORGE TOWN, Cayman Islands (Jan. 13, 2014) – The U.S. Under-20 Women’s National Team topped Group A at the CONCACAF Women’s U-20 Championship on Monday with a 10-0 victory against Guatemala – the USA’s largest win at this tournament since 2004. The USA will face either Mexico or Trinidad in the semifinals, which kick off Friday, Jan. 17, at 7 p.m. ET on FOX Soccer Plus and FOX Soccer 2GO.
The winner of the two semifinal matches and the third-place match on Jan. 19 qualify for the 2014 FIFA Under-20 Women’s World Cup in Canada.
Forward McKenzie Meehan scored three goals to lead the way for the U.S. – the second hat trick of the tournament for the Americans after Lindsey Horan notched three in the opening match against Costa Rica. She was followed on the score sheet by U-20 WNT debutant Mallory Weber, who scored two second-half goals after coming on as a sub for Savannah Jordan, who scored the USA’s final goal of the first half on a penalty kick.
