    GEORGE TOWN, Cayman Islands – Mexico’s Tanya Samarzich and McKenzie Meehan of the United States shared the Golden Boot at the 2014 CONCACAF Women’s Under-20 Championship (CWU20) after concluding the tournament as joint-top scorers with six goals each.

    The fantastic forwards achieved their tally totals in two different ways.
