    GEORGE TOWN, Cayman Islands – McKenzie Meehan scored three goals and the United States defeated Guatemala 10-0 on Monday in the CONCACAF Women’s Under-20 Championship at Truman Bodden Sports Complex.

    The Americans completed Group A play with a perfect 3-0-0 record and a first-place finish.  In Friday’s semifinals, they will face either Mexico or Trinidad & Tobago, who square off tomorrow to decide the Group B winner and runner-up.  Costa Rica, which tied Jamaica 1-1 earlier in the evening, will join them in the final four.

    Meehan opened the scoring in the eighth minute after collecting Rachel Hill’s deflected attempt and sweeping a left-footed effort past goalkeeper Yoselin Franco.

    The 19-year-old also added two strikes in the second half.

    In the 57th minute, Meehan put the U.S. ahead 7-0.  After some determined play by the dynamic Stephanie Amack, Mallory Weber slipped a brilliant pass in the box for Meehan to fire in from eight-yards out.

    The Boston College forward completed the scoreline in the 74th minute, executing a beautiful give-and-go with Rachel Hill and slamming home from the left side of the six yard box.

    Weber, a substitute, struck for back-to-back goals in the second half.

    Her first came in the 61st minute off a pass from Hill and she followed it up with an unusual tally seven minutes later.  A goal-bound header by Margaret Purce took a bounce off a Meehan’s back, allowing the Penn State midfielder to find fortuitously the back of the net once again.

    The two-time defending champion took a 4-0 lead into half-time.

    Amack made it 2-0 in the 22nd minute, leaping high to head Morgan Andrews’ right-sided corner inside the right post.

    Left-back Brittany Basinger got her name on the scoresheet in the 31st minute, swooping in at the left post to knock in Hill’s parried attempt.

    Savannah Jordan netted in a third consecutive game six minutes before the break, burying a penalty kick after Purce was taken down in the box.

    Three minutes into the second half, Hill successfully converted on another kick from the spot, while Purce grabbed her first of the tournament in the 54th.

    The Americans’ have now won 13 consecutive games in the tournament, extending their record, and have conceded only one goal in their last nine outings.

    Guatemala returns to Central America with one point.
