The U.S. U-17s got their second hat trick in three games with Joshua Perez finding the net three times as the U.S. cruised to a 4-1 win over Guatemala. Perez wrapped up the trifecta before the first intermission converting a free kick, a goal in the run of play and a penalty kick. Pierre Da Silva scored the U.S.'s fourth goal just after half time before the U.S. conceded their first goal of the tournament later in the half. Christian Pulisic picked up his fourth assist of the tournament while also setting up Perez's penalty. He has had at least one assist in all three U.S. matches.
With three wins in as many matches, the U.S. find themselves in the driver's seat of Group A. They take on Honduras on Sunday with a chance to lock up a berth to the 2015 World Cup.
