[UNDER-20 WOMEN'S WORLD CUP] The USA got a hat trick from star Sydney Leroux to crush Switzerland and gain its first win at the Under-20 Women's World Cup in Germany on Saturday.

Kristie Mewis and Zakiya Bywaters also scored for the Americans, who led, 3-0, after 25 minutes.

Leroux's hat trick gives her four goals in two games and nine in two Under-20 World Cups.
