[CONCACAF UNDER-20 WOMEN'S CHAMPIONSHIP] Sydney Leroux, winner of the Golden Ball and Golden Shoe at the 2008 Under-20 Women's World Cup, made it four goals in two goals with a pair of goals in a 4-0 victory over Trinidad & Tobago Saturday that moved the Americans into the semifinals of the 2010 Concacaf under-20 qualifying tournament in Guatemala City, Guatemala.

Nebraska's Morgan Marlborough and Boston College's Kristie Mewis gave the USA the early lead with their first goals of the tournament before Leroux, the former Canada youth international, finished off the scoring with a pair of goals late in the first half. She also scored twice in the 6-0 win over Jamaica.

The USA dominated T&T with a 19-2 edge in shots.

Canada (2-0 winner over Cuba) and Mexico (2-0 winner over Jamaica) also won their second games, though only Mexico clinched a berth in the semifinals. Costa Rica defeated host Guatemala, 3-0, in the other game.
