Dominguez, who had scored 67 goals in 90 games coming into the tournament, scored in the 24th, 44th and 67th minutes minutes to pace a dominant Mexican side against a young Guatemalan team that started five teenagers and only three players over the age of 20.
Seeking their second trip to the Olympics and first since Greece in 2004, Mexico also had goals by Marylin Diaz and Dinora Garza to dispatch the Chapines.
