[CONCACAF UNDER-17 WOMEN'S CHAMPIONSHIP]The USA beat Canada, 2-0, to win Group B at the 2013 Concacaf U-17 Women's Championship in Montego Bay, Jamaica, and move into Thursday's semifinals against Mexico with a spot at the 2014 U-17 Women's World Cup in Costa Rica on the line for the winner. The shutout upped the USA's scoring margin in the last three regional tournaments to 73-0 and 102-2 since the U-17 Women's World Cup began in 2008.

Forwards Zoe Redei and Mallory Pugh scored goals in the 36th and 62nd minutes, respectively, to give the USA its third straight victory at the Montego Bay Sports Complex. It needed a win to capture the group title as Canada had the edge in goal difference (plus-19 to plus-15). In the other semifinal, host Jamaica, winner of Group A, will take on Canada.

The USA took the lead when captain Ellie Jean -- daughter of former MLS pitcher whose father Domingo Jean -- drove down the right side and found Redei, who stabbed the ball home with the outside of her right foot for her team-leading fifth goal of the tournament.

Redei turned provider in the 62nd minute when she latched on to a long ball over the top, outpaced the defense into the right side of the penalty area before expertly squaring to Pugh, who calmly rolled the ball home into an empty net for her third in two games.

The USA could have added to its lead but Marley Canales had her penalty kick saved by goalie Rylee Foster. Canada finished the game with 10 players as defender Mika Richards was injured on the play that led to the penalty but it had already used its three substitutes.
