US Youth Soccer (USYS) saw three members of its family compete at the CONCACAF U-17 Women’s World Cup Qualifiers in the Dominican Republic from April 23 – May 8 — an incredible honor and a sign of much more to come for these ladies.
Eastern New York’s Claire Hutton – United States
Claire featured in five games during the qualifiers, starting two, and recorded six goals and four assists. The U-17 USWNT went on to beat Mexico 2-1 in the Championship which clinched a berth to the 2022 FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup in India.
In seven games, the U-17 USWNT scored an extremely impressive 58 goals while only allowing one in the penultimate match. This marks the fifth FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup that the U-17 USWNT has qualified for — and it was their fifth, and third straight, CONCACAF Women’s U-17 title.
Eastern New York’s Alyssa Blake – Guyana
Alyssa earned a spot in the starting lineup and played the full match for Guyana’s Round of 16 showdown against Mexico.
New Jersey’s Angelina Amaya – El Salvador
Angelina competed with El Salvador as the team scored 21 goals in five games during a run to the quarter-finals.
