Morgan Brian and Kealia Ohai each tallied their first goals of the tournament as the U.S. advances to its third U-20 title match. The USA has won the tournament twice, defeating Canada to win the 2002 crown when it was a U-19 event, and most recently defeating Korea DPR 2-1 in the 2008 U-20 Women’s World Cup.
