That the winner will move onto play for the qualifying championship on Sunday is a mere bonus, as this is the one every woman’s been battling for all tourney.

Canada is the heavy favorite after shutting out all three opponents in Group B. First it was Guyana by five, then Trinidad and Tobago by six before plopping a 10-spot on Guatemala.

Costa Rica lost 5-0 to the United States but beat Mexico 2-1 and blew out Puerto Rico en route to the semi.

Any chance Las Ticas make it happen on Friday?
