Christen Press and Samantha Mewis each scored two goals and the United States beat Costa Rica 6-0 Monday night to finish atop its group in the CONCACAF Women’s Olympic Qualifying tournament.
The World Cup-winning U.S. team extended its unbeaten streak to 26 games. The Americans wrapped up the group stage with three shutouts and 18 goals.
Both teams had already earned a spot in the semifinals of the tournament later this week in Carson, California. Eight teams are playing in the tournament, which will determine the region’s two berths to the Tokyo Olympics this summer.
The semifinal matchups will be determined Tuesday when Canada plays Mexico on Tuesday in Edinburg, Texas. The winner of that match will avoid the top-ranked Americans.
