Sarah Stratigakis scored twice to lift the Canadian women to a 2-0 victory over Honduras on Monday at the CONCACAF under-20 championship.

The victory clinched Canada top spot in Group A.

Canada had opened the tournament with a 2-0 win over Trinidad and Tobago 2-0 and a 7-0 rout of Jamaica.

The top two teams in each of the two groups move on to Saturday's semifinals.
