The home team did not need the first half to beat Cafeteria with a goal from a penalty kick in the 13th minute by Lindsey Horan, and another by Jenna Niggsunger and Jaden Shaw in the second minute of the match.

Nerves, multiple errors in handing the ball over and blunders in defense condemned the team led by Angelo Marseille.

3-2.- An Offaly double and another goal from Luna strengthen Mexico

Mexico, which passed the group stage at the top of Group A with 7 points out of 9 and 10 goals to its credit, won a brace from Lizbeth “La Maja” Ovalley, one of the tournament’s top scorers with five goals.

Paraguay was on the verge of equalizing the match.

The students of Spanish coach Pedro Lopez Ramos relied on the attack from the beginning and pushed Paraguay towards their goal until the 31st minute.

Offaly opened the scoring with a cross shot that Paraguay goalkeeper Alicia Bobadilla was unable to save.

At the beginning of the second half, in the 49th minute, Mexico's second goal came, a goal from Karen Luna, who kicked a ball into the area that was cleared by the Guarani defense after a corner kick.
