    MONTEGO BAY, Jamaica – Though Mexico and Canada secured the confederation’s pair of qualifying berths for the 2014 FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup after surviving semifinal encounters, there is still a matter of the final to contest. 

    The North American sides will vie for the 2013 CONCACAF Women’s Under-17 Championship (CWU17) crown on Saturday in the second of two games at Catherine Hall Stadium.  Host Jamaica and the United States will square-off for third place in the opener.

    It will be the second time that Mexico and Canada have met for regional superiority in this age group.  The Maple Leafs won the 2010 curtain closer, 1-0, thanks to an eighth-minute goal by Kinley McNicholl.

    Earlier in that same tournament, the Mexicans came out on top 1-0 in a group phase match, as Anakaren Llamas netted three minutes before the interval.

    Janae Gonzalez leads the Tricolor with three goals, all against El Salvador in a 7-0 win on November 1.  Her tireless play at forward has been key throughout the competition and was particularly vital in Thursday’s semifinal, where she constantly moved side-to-side to reduce the ability of the United States to initiate its offense from the back.

    Canada successfully relies on an offense that has produced 24 tallies in four games.  Forward Marie-Mychele Metivier has scored the first goal in each of her team’s three wins and has netted a tournament-best six.  Emily Borgmann and Marie Levasseur have struck an impressive five times each.

    Will Mexico lift the trophy a first-ever time or will Canada reclaim the silverware?
