[CONCACAF UNDER-17 CHAMPIONSHIP] Two days after being eliminated in qualifying for the 2014 Under-17 Women's World Cup, the USA took it out on host Jamaica with an 8-0 win to take third place at Concacaf U-17 Women's Championship.

It was 4-0 before 28 minutes, and the USA finished with a 41-1 edge in shots. It has outscored its opponents 111-3 in four Concacaf U-17 Women's Championships and never lost a game, but it has now failed to qualify twice, being eliminated in shootouts both times.

Midfielder Mallory Pugh led the USA with two goals and two assists. Taylor Otto and Madison Haley also scored twice apiece.

Pugh and Zoe Redei led the USA in scoring in the tournament with five goals each. The USA finished the tournament with a 26-1 edge in goals. The lone goal it gave up was to Texan Briana Woodall in the 1-1 tie with Mexico in the semifinals.

Mexico defeated the USA 4-2 in a shootout and went on to beat Canada by the same score in a shootout in the final after their game ended 0-0.

    Every time I read this kind of news I get angry at CONCACAF and US soccer. It has been happening a lot recently. Almost in every CONCACAF underage tournament. Teams park the bus and play for PKs and win one crucial game and qualify to the finals at the expense of one of the tournament's best teams. I understand if it happens in a knock-out round in a World Cup final. But it shouldn't happen in a qualifying tournaments. The USA beat Canada, Jamaica and drew Mexico (7 points) and was eliminated. Canada beat Jamaica and drew Mexico (4 points) and qualified. Mexico drew the USA, Canada and Jamaica (3 points) and qualified. CONCACAF officially sucks.
