MONTERREY, Mexico – The 2022 Concacaf W Championship in Monterrey has concluded following the 1-0 victory for the United States over Canada in Monday’s Final at the Estadio BBVA in Guadalupe.
There were a number of standout performances over the two weeks at both the individual and collective levels, with the following players and teams earning top distinctions.

Canada have earned the Scotiabank Fair Play Award in recognition of the exemplary behavior that promoted the spirit of fair play and compassion in the 2022 CWC.
Young Player Award, presented by Scotiabank: Melchie Dumornay, Haiti
Dumornay was a headache for opposing defenses during Haiti’s campaign, which included a first ever CWC victory against Mexico (3-0). Dumornay’s playmaking led to a penalty in Haiti’s opener versus the United States, while against Mexico she completed 30 of 31 passes. Dumornay then completed the tournament by twice hitting the post in the group stage finale against Jamaica.
Best Goalkeeper: Kailen Sheridan, Canada
Sheridan finished the tournament with just one goal allowed, as Canada finished as runners-up. The 27-year-old recorded three clean sheets and made seven saves in four matches.
