    MONTEGO BAY, Jamaica – Canada and the United States will look to secure semifinal places in the 2013 CONCACAF Women’s Under-17 Championship (CWU17) on Saturday, when they face Trinidad & Tobago and Guatemala, respectively, at Catherine Hall Stadium . 

    With victories, the North American powers will join Jamaica in the event’s knockout phase.

    The Canadians opened their campaign on Thursday with an 8-0 win over Guatemala. Emily Borgmann also struck for a hat-trick, while Marie Levasseur and Nadya Gill added two apiece for the second straight game.

    Like Canada, the U.S. started off the competition with an 8-0 triumph.  Trinidad & Tobago held strong until the 32nd minute, when Mallory Pugh struck for the first of her two tallies.  Zoe Morse’s goal fifty minutes later was the Americans’ 100th in tournament history.  Remarkably, the feat was achieved in only 16 games.

    “The involvement of our team over 90 minutes was excellent,” said U.S. head coach B.J. Snow.  “We were able to find spaces to penetrate, whether it was the width or inside to find those pockets. Overall, I was very pleased.”

    Can his team continue with its impressive play?
