Taylor Pryce had a hat trick as Canada's women's under-20 team routed Jamaica 7-0 on Sunday in the qualifying round of the CONCACAF women's under-20 championship in San Pedro Sula, Honduras.

Sura Yekka, Sarah Kinzner and Shana Flynn all scored in the first half as Canada guaranteed a berth in the semifinals of the tournament. Vital Kats scored in the 70th half.

Canada needed six points in the qualifying stage to advance to the playoffs. The win over Jamaica coupled with a 2-0 victory against Trinidad and Tobago on Thursday was enough to move on.

Sunday's contest was originally scheduled for Saturday but inclement weather led to unplayable conditions at Estadio Olimpico Metropolitano.

The Canadians will play their final match of the opening round on Tuesday against host Honduras.
