[CONCACAF UNDER-17 WOMEN'S CHAMPIONSHIP] With a whopping 52-1 edge in shots, the USA opened play at the Concacaf Under-17 Women's Championship with a 10-0 in over the Bahamas on Thursday at Guatemala City's Estadio Cementos Progreso. Midfielder Summer Green had five goals, including four in the first half, while Margaret Purce added three goals and an assist.

The USA overwhelmed its inexperienced opponents, taking only 37 seconds to find the net as Purce finished a Gabbi Miranda cross from the left side.

The rest of the first half belonged to Green, who scored the USA's next four goals to build a 5-0 lead heading into halftime.

Second-half substitutes Andi Sullivan and Toni Payne had the other goals.

The U.S. U-17s continue Group B play against Trinidad & Tobago on Saturday at 4 p.m. ET.
