    SAN PEDRO SULA, Honduras – The United States (2W-1D-0L, 7 points, GD+11) will face host and Group A runner-up Honduras in the semifinals of the 2015 CONCACACF Under-20 Women’s Championship after it earned a 6-0 victory over Haiti (1W-0D-2L, 3 points) on Wednesday at the Estadio Internacional Sampedrana. 

    The result lifted the Americans into first place in Group B on goal difference over Mexico (2W-1D-0L, 7 points, GD+7), which defeated Panama (0W-0D-3L, 0 points), 2-0, earlier in the day. A meeting with Group A winner Canada – the only team to go a perfect 3W-0D-0L in the group stage -- awaits the Tricolor in the final four. Both semifinals will be played on Friday. 

    Once again, Mallory Pugh led the way for the three-time defending champion, netting twice to take her first in the tournament scoring chart with five goals. Jessie Scarpa, who had three goals against Panama on Monday, contributed a goal and a pair of assists. 

    Shortly after teammate Sabrina Flores left the game with an apparent knee injury, Savannah De Melo opened the scoring in the 16th minute, collecting a Parker Roberts pass and bursting into the right side of the box to beat goalkeeper Jonie Gabriel from 15-yards out. 

    Pugh then struck for the next two to make it 3-0. The Real Colorado standout rounded Gabriel off a Jessie Scarpa feed in the 35th minute and rolled Ashley Sanchez’s long-distance header into the back of the net from the top of the box nine minutes later. 

    The outstanding Scarpa put the game out of reach for all intents and purposes three minutes after the break. Sanchez found the 19-year-old forward out on the right. Following a neat move to free herself for space, Scarpa fired a right-footer from 19-yards out into the upper net. 

    Two minutes later, Scarpa’s cross along the ground from the right found Tierna Davidson for an easy tap-in at the left post. 

    Ella Stevens punctuated the scoreline, slotting in at the right post as DeMelo’s diagonal cross slipped through the Haitian box.
