[CONCACAF UNDER-17 WOMEN'S CHAMPIONSHIP] Summer Green scored all three goals to up her tournament total to nine in three games and lead the USA to a 3-0 win over Mexico -- which started seven U.S.-based players -- at the 2012 Concacaf U-17 Women's Championship in Guatemala City. The USA clinched first place in Group B and moves into the semifinals against Panama on Thursday. Canada will meet Mexico in the other semifinal.

The winners of the semifinals and the winner of the third-place match earn Concacaf's three berths to the U-17 Women's World Cup in Azerbaijan this fall.

Green's nine goals matched the U.S. record for a U-17 qualifying stage set by Lindsey Horan two years ago.

"The mentality was excellent," said U.S. head coach Albertin Montoya. "This is a game we were prepared for and we were looking forward to playing, but Mexico is an excellent team and they showed why they are such a strong opponent. They made it very difficult for us, but fortunately for the U.S. right now we have a forward that is very dangerous and on a hot streak in Summer Green. She put three away in the first half and that made the difference in the game. In the second half, we were able to slow the game down and hopefully save our legs a little bit."

May 7 in Guatemala City
USA 3 Mexico 0. Goals: Green 17, 31, 36.
USA -- Campbell; Basinger, Bauer, Freeman, Miranda; Andrews, Robinson (Payne, 68), Kaskie (Boyles, 56); Munerlyn (Stanton, 83), Green, Purce.

Att.: 500.

    Good to see Mexico catching up in women's soccer. They had 7 USA born players on World Cup team as well.
