The U.S. junior women’s team are one step closer to the 2015 World Junior Women’s Team Championship final after a clinical quarterfinal victory over northern neighbors Canada Sunday at Squash Time in Eindhoven, Holland.

Three, three-game victories by Kayley Leonard, Sabrina Sobhy, and Reeham Sedky—all in under twenty minutes—were enough to see second-seeded Team USA through to Monday’s semifinals.

“All the girls played well, they were focused and played disciplined squash, ” said Scott Devoy, Head Coach. “It should give them some confidence for tomorrow, and if we can take that momentum into the match and play as well as that, then we’ll be difficult to beat.”

The U.S. now face third-seeded England in the semifinals—a rematch of the 2013 world junior women’s team semifinals—following a 2-0 quarterfinal victory against Hong Kong.

Monday’s semifinal against England will be live streamed on the official tournament website at 12pm ET: http://wsfworldjuniors.com/live/
