[YOUTH] The USA won Group A of the CONCACAF Under-17 Girls Championship with a 9-1 win against Trinidad & Tobago Tuesday night at Marvin Lee Stadium in Macoya, Trinidad.

Forward Courtney Verloo led the Americans with a hat trick, while Kristen Mewis added two goals and Victoria DiMartino, Samantha Johnson and Alexis Harris each added one. Midfielder Erika Tymrak had out four assists.

Trinidad & Tobago, coached Notre Dame University women's coach Randy Waldrum, featured nine U.S.-born players in its squad, including high school freshman phenom Jessica DeLeon, the daughter of Leroy DeLeon, the former Trinidad & Tobago and NASL star.
