MIAMI, Florida The United States are champions of League A of the 2022 Concacaf Girls’ Under-15 Championship in Tampa, Florida after downing Canada 4-1 on Sunday in the Final.

The U.S. got off to a strong start and held an early 2-0 lead thanks to goals from Alexandra Pfeiffer and Kennedy Fuller. But Canada would answer with a goal from Isabelle Chukwu to make it a 2-1 affair going into the final minutes.

In the end, though, the U.S. secured the title with late goals from Abby Ballek and Ashlyn Puerta to nail down the 4-1 victory and a third consecutive Concacaf Girls’ Under-15 Championship crown.

 

In the Third-Place Match, Mexico marched to a 5-0 victory against the Dominican Republic, with five different players finding the back of the net for El Tricolor.
