MOST COMMENTED

The U.S. under-20 women's national team stunned the full Canadian women's national team, 2-1, on Monday and will face host Brazil on Thursday in the gold-medal game of the Pan-American Games at the famed Maracana Stadium in Rio de Janeiro.

UCLA's Lauren Cheney scored both goals in the win for the U-20s, who were coming off a 3-2 loss to Mexico, also fielding its full national team, in their final group game. Cheney was suspended for that match after being red carded in the USA's win over Argentina

The U.S. team was outshot by Canada, 15-6, but got a goal in both halves from Cheney, then fended off a late rally to record the win. Kara Lang, Cheney's UCLA teammate, scored with two minutes left for Canada.

Canada lost to Brazil, 7-0, in their group finale.

The U.S. men's team was knocked out of medal contention when it fell to Mexico, 2-0, in its final group game.
