MONTEGO BAY, Jamaica – After securing 2013 CONCACAF Women’s Under-17 Championship (CWU17) semifinal places with Saturday wins, Canada and the United States face-off on Monday looking to determine which will enter the knockout phase as Group B champion.

 At Catherine Hall Stadium, a third all-time meeting in the competition between the northern rivals will follow the Guatemala-Trinidad & Tobago encounter, two eliminated teams searching for their first points.

In 2010, Canada advanced to final 5-3 on penalty kicks following a scoreless draw against the Americans.  The result staggeringly excluded the then defending CONCACAF champion from World Cup contention, even though it completed the tournament undefeated (4-1-0) and unscored upon (32-0).

Two years later, the U.S. gained a measure of sporting revenge, defeating the Canadians 1-0 in the championship match. 

The Group B winner will take on Mexico, while the runner-up meets host Jamaica in Thursday’s semifinals.

The eventual finalists qualify for the 2014 FIFA U-17 World Cup, which will be held in Costa Rica.

Thanks to superior goal difference, Canada can win the group with a draw.  Will it be able to do so?
