Midfielder Marc Pelosi's first-half finish and Anthony Oliver's late stoppage-time goal helped give the U.S. Under-17 national team a 2-0 victory against Jamaica in the CONCACAF Under-17 semifinals on Friday in Montego Bay, Jamaica.
The win pushed the Americans into Sunday's CONCACAF Under-17 Final against Canada, which defeated Panama, 1-0, in Friday's earlier semifinal.
Pelosi opened the scoring in the 11th minute when he re-directed an Alfred Koroma header. Jamaica pressed hard for an equalizer, but a late red card made it that much more difficult. Oliver put the match out of reach with a 92nd-minute finish to put the Americans into the final.
