Canada were eliminated by rivals USA at the 2020 Concacaf Women’s Under-20 Championship following an 0:4 loss on Wednesday afternoon in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. USA scored twice in each half, with the first three goals scored following corner kicks. Mia Fishel scored twice and both Brianna Pinto and Kennedy Wesley scored once each.
 
“There’s no hiding from that it’s obviously a very disappointing time but I am very proud of them, they put it all on the line,” said Head Coach Rhian Wilkinson. “Today, we’re upset, and I’m very upset for our seniors who will be graduating out of the program.  But, I look at the progress of our young players right now and I’m so proud of Jayde (Riviere), Julia (Grosso), and Jordyn (Huitema) that are all this age group that are with the senior team right now in France.  Our youth program is for giving opportunities, learning hard lessons so that one day we watch them wearing the jersey for our Canadian senior team.”
 
This marks only the second time ever that Canada and USA have faced each other in an elimination match for a FIFA women’s youth tournament. Canada eliminated USA in 2010 from the FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup before USA eliminated Canada this year from the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup. The two nations have won 12 of 14 Concacaf women’s youth championships before this year.
 
MATCH CENTRE, QUOTES & PHOTOS
 
Across five matches, Canada posted two wins, a draw, and two losses at the 2020 Concacaf Women’s Under-20 Championship.

All-time, Canada have posted 62 wins, seven draws, and 18 losses in 87 Concacaf women’s youth matches since 2004 (all age groups from U-15 to U-20).
 
In the Concacaf Quarterfinals, USA opened the scoring in the 35' following a Jenna Nighswonger corner kick from the right side. Canadian goalkeeper Anna Karpenko initially punched it away, but Fishel collected the ball and scored the opener, her ninth goal of the tournament.
 
USA scored their second goal six minutes later, this time after a Katelyn Duong corner kick from the opposite side. Captain Naomi Girma played it to Brianna Pinto who scored her sixth goal of the tournament for the 2-0 lead.
 
Just before the break, Canada had their best chance following a pair of kicks from Lara Kazandjian. Her free kick to the back post nearly found Wayny Balata, but American Emily Mason cleared it. On the ensuing corner kick, Pinto was there for the clearance.
 
In the 54', USA scored again off a corner kick, this time from the Duong corner headed into goal by Kennedy Wesley. In the 67', Fishel made it 4-0 with her second goal, this time on a pass from Alexa Spaanstra.

Canada opened the scoring on the Boychuk penalty in the seventh minute, her third goal of the 2020 tournament. On the play, Ladhani played the give and go with Léonie Portelance and then Ladhani from inside the box played it back to Boychuk. Cuba’s Gianni Borrego fouled Boychuk to the ground after which referee Karitza Guerra awarded Canada the penalty kick.
 
In the 13th minute, Ladhani was off and running into the box again, this time striking the far post with her low shot that beat the goalkeeper Alianne Matamoro, but stayed out. Five minutes later, Boychuk had a good run into the box, but she ultimately lost her balance as she rounded the goalkeeper and could not double the Canada lead.
 
In the 37th minute, Ladhani made it 2-0 from inside the box shortly after a Portelance free kick. The initial kick knocked off a few players before Ladhani fired her shot off the crossbar and into the goal.

In the 56th minute, Boychuk scored her second goal, again from the penalty spot, but this time after Wayny Balata was fouled inside the box. Incidentally, it marked the first time ever that Canada scored two goals from the penalty spot in the same Concacaf women’s youth match.
 
Canada were right back on the attack in the second half, with a Portelance cross from the right in the 46th minute already causing more problems for the Cuba defence. Moments later, Portelance had a good run into the box and played the ball to Andersen Williams, but the shot at the back post missed the target.
 
In the 59th minute, Portelance powered a shot off the crossbar after Shaw had shaked away from her defender. The shot came moments after Canada had made their first two substitutions.
 
In the 77th minute, Wilkinson had a pair of wonderful touches on the ball from inside the box, but Cuban goalkeeper Matamoro was on the spot to make a pair of fine saves. On the first rush, it was a Portelance cross from the right before the Wilkinson shot was saved; moments later, Williams was the provider with a pass from the left, but again after Wilkinson controled and fired her shot from close range, Matamoro made the save.
 
Two minutes later, she chipped an off balanced shot that nearly hit the top corner, but Matamoro got back in time to make the save.

After those three chances, there was no denying Wilkinson on back-to-back runs into the box. She scored her first goal on a pass from Ladhani in the 82nd minute. A minute later, the two combined again as Ladhani assisted on Wilkinson’s 5-0 goal.
 
Late in the match, Portelance scored the last goal on a header from inside the box. On the play, Wilkinson turned provider as she sent a ball in from the left side for the awaiting Portelance.
 
Canada’s starting XI featured Kayza Massey in goal, Emma Regan at right back, Jade Rose and Sonia Walk at centre back, Caleigh Boeckx at left back, and Wayny Balata, Maya Ladhani, Caitlin Shaw, Léonie Portelance, Andersen Williams and Tanya Boychuk from the midfield up through to the attack. In the second half, coach Rhian Wilkinson replaced Balata with Marika Guay (58’), Boychuk with Jazmine Wilkinson (58’), and Regan with Molly Quarry (64’).
 
With five career goals at the Concacaf Women’s Under-20 Championship, Boychuk moved into a tie for third place on Canada’s all-time list at the competition (tied with Jordyn Huitema and Jenna Richardson, trailing only Jodi-Ann Robinson at seven and Aysha Jamani at nine).
 
Also of note in the victory, both Wilkinson and Portelance scored their first international youth goals.

Canada head into the knockout phase of the Concacaf Women’s Under-20 Championship after finishing in second place in their group behind winners Jamaica. Canada finished with one win, one draw and one loss after Jamaica won 3:1 in the Wednesday afternoon group finale.

Jamaica’s Jody Brown, the only FIFA Women’s World Cup player at the Concacaf Women’s Under-20 Championship, set the tone with the 1-0 goal in the 20th minute, her team-best fourth goal in three matches. Lacey Murray (80’) and Marlee Fray (88’) scored on transition attacks in the last 10 minutes before Tanya Boychuk scored for Canada in added time (90’+1).

"We talked to the players about leaving it all on the field and I think tactically we got it right, but Jamaica are a transition team and they scored three transition goals," said Rhian Wilkinson, Canada Soccer’s Women’s U-20 Coach. "Jamaica did exactly what they do really well. We talked about it and we knew about their strength, so in that way it is frustrating because we otherwise dominated the game except where it matter most on the scoresheet."

In the 20th minute, Jamaica opened the scoring after Brown got past one defender and then squeezed past two more on her run into the box. She then finished with a left-footed shot that beat the Canadian goalkeeper.

Canada continued to boss possession through the first half and were aggressively back on the attack early in the second half.
