[CONCACAF UNDER-17 WOMEN'S CHAMPIONSHIP] Summer Green made it 12 goals in four games with a hat trick to lead the USA to a 7-0 victory over Panama at the 2012 CONCACAF U-17 Women’s Championship and a berth in the U-17 Women’s World Cup Sept. 22-Oct. 13 in Azerbaijan. With her third hat trick of the tournament, Green broke the U.S. record at any level for the most goals in a qualifying tournament.

Green broke the previous CONCACAF U-17 women's record of nine goals set by the USA's Lindsey Horan at the 2010 qualifying tournament in Costa Rica.

The USA will meet Canada -- a 1-0 winner over Mexico in the other semifinal -- for the Concacaf championship on Saturday.

"I'm very excited for the team and I think they put on an excellent performance out there today," said U.S. coach Albertin Montoya. "But I don't think [qualifying for the World Cup] has hit me yet, because I am already thinking about the final. I've already started preparing for it in my mind, who is going to play and how we are going to set up, but I am very happy for this team. They played their hearts out and they deserve it, but we have one more game."

    Massacre indeed. The soccer gods will not be pleased with this display of excess. There will be bad Karma.
