Next up for the victorious USA will be Mexico in the title match June 12 @ 4:30 E.T. on and UDN. For their part, Mexico overcame Canada 2-1. The belle of this ball was Sunshine Fontes with her 2nd brace including the game winner.  Two of the 3 goals amazingly enough were netted in under a minute, one of course by Sunshine, the other sent home by Mia Fishel.  Haiti put together a rugged and well positioned defensive effort creating limited but threatening conters and hopeful distance shots. They took the early lead by way of a deep free kick off the foot of Melchie Dumonay who also had a brace with her next tally in the waning seconds to close the gap to one.  Again proving the stat of possession means next to nothing the US had 73% of the possession .
