[CONCACAF WOMEN'S UNDER-17 CHAMPIONSHIP] After 9-0 and 13-0 wins, the USA beat host Costa Rica, 10-0, Sunday night. The game was decided quickly after being interrupted in the 10th minute due to a power failure. When the lights were restored, the Americans needed only 45 seconds to score, added a second four minutes after that and then again three minutes later.

(COSTA RICA-USA Highlights)

Taylor Smith led the USA with a hat trick that gives her six goals in three games.

Lindsay Horan scored twice to give her a tournament-leading eight goals.

Captain Morgan Brian also scored twice, while Alexandra Doll and Kaili Torres both added their second goals of the championship and Jennifer Gonzalez scored in her debut match in the championship.

The United States, the runner-up at the inaugural World Cup in 2008, will face the Group A runner-up - either Mexico or Canada -- in the semifinals on Thursday. Costa Rica finished second in Group B and will play the Group A winner in the other semifinal on Thursday.
