USA takes U20 title without conceding one goal

| 20/01/2014

(CNS): As expected the United States U20 ladies team came out on top Sunday with another emphatic win when the ladies beat Mexico 4-0 in the CONCACAF final at the Truman Bodden Sports complex. The team stormed through the tournament to the final without conceding a single goal to gain an easy spot in the World Cup finals in Canada in August. Mexico will also be joining the USA at the finals as the tournament runners up along with Costa Rica which managed to steal a victory over Trinidad and Tobago in extra time in the losers’ play-off on Sunday.

Despite the ease with which the US girls qualified, scoring 29 goals during the competition,  they had to work a little harder Sunday evening in the final against Mexico in a relatively close game.
However, the team which scored three of the four goals in the second half took the CONCACAF Women's Under-20 Championship for a third straight time with a perfect 5-0-0 record.

In the losers playoff however things were a little different Costa Rica rallied from a two-goal deficit in the second half against Trinidad and with the score line at 3-3 at the whistle forcing play into extra. Trinidad had been less than 20 minutes away from becoming the first Caribbean side to qualify for a FIFA Women’s World Cup at any level, when the Central Americans started a rally to recover from the deficit with a final score of 7-4.

    Fabulous event. Everything was great. Thanks to everyone involved.

    Unless I missed it, would have loved to have seen a scoreboard that had time and score showing throughout the matches. Next time for sure.

    Great job to all the teams involved and the supporters!!
