For the first time in the entire tournament, the U.S. U20 WNT conceded a goal at the Concacaf Championship.

A sixth minute strike from Mexico's Silvana Flores turned out to be a quick blip, as four unanswered goals from U.S. forwards Trinity Rodman and Mia Fishel led the U.S. to a 4-1 win and a sixth victory at a Concacaf Under-20 Women's Championship.

Flores shocked the United States with a sensational left-footed strike from just outside the box to put Mexico up 1-0.

The lead would last just six minutes however, as Rodman volleyed home the tying goal from an Alexa Spaanstra cross.

No one scored until four minutes into the second half, with Mexico holding the U.S. at bay. A long-distance strike from Kately Duong was parried in front of goal. Fishel was the first to the ball, bundling home what turned out to be the go-ahead goal.

Fishel extended the lead to 3-1 when she powered home a header in the 58th minute, getting on the end of a long, diagonal cross from right back Emily Mason. It was Fishel's 13th goal of the tournament, and she was named the Golden Ball winner after the final whistle.

It was Rodman that struck against to secure the crown for the United States, as she powered past the Mexico back line, finishing to the far post in the 88th minute.

U.S. Lineup: Julia Dohle; Emily Mason, Naomi Girma (Capt.), Kennedy Wesley, Shae Holmes; Jenna Nighswonger, Brianna Pinto, Katelyn Duong (Sierra Enge, 81); Trinity Rodman (Summer Yates, 89), Mia Fishel, Alexa Spaanstra (Talia DellaPeruta, 76)
