Gio Reyna, a son of former U.S. national team captain Claudio Reyna, scored a hat trick to lead the Americans to an 8-0 over Guadeloupe at the CONCACAF Under-17 Championship on Thursday night.
The U.S. will play Panama in the quarterfinals on Sunday for a berth in the Under-17 World Cup.
Reyna, a member of the Borussia Dortmund youth system, scored the third U.S. goal in the 20th minute and the fifth in the 29th, converting a penalty in the 42nd for a 6-0 halftime lead.
Alfonso Ocampo-Chavez scored from a pass from Reyna in the fourth minute and added a goal in the 68th. Griffin Yow scored in the 11th minute and Gianluca Busio in the 25th, and the U.S. got an own goal in the 70th.
Reyna, Busio and Ocampo-Chavez have four goals each in the tournament, and Yow three.
