- In her sixth U-20 cap tonight, Ally Sentnor scored her second and third career U-20 WYNT goals. She scored her first in the 2022 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup vs. Ghana.
- Kat Rader notched her fourth career goal at the U-20 level in just her third cap.
- Jordynn Dudley, Lauren Martinho and Ally Lemos all made their first U-20 WYNT appearances tonight and scored their first goals at the U-20 level.
- Every player who saw action tonight earned her first cap in a Concacaf Women’s U-20 Championship and all but Sentnor, Rader and goalkeeper Teagan Wy earned their first-ever U-20 international caps.
- U.S. head coach Tracey Kevins made three changes in the 63rd minute and two more just past the 70th, giving first U-20 caps to outside backs Tessa Dellarose and Leah Klenke, Martinho and forwards Onyeka Gamero and Maggie Cagle, whose mom Kelly earned one full USWNT cap in 1994.
