U-23 WNT Wins Four Nations Tournament with 2-1 Win Against England

CHICAGO (May 31, 2015) – The U.S. Under-23 Women’s National Team defeated its counterparts from England 2-1 to win the Four Nations Tournament in Norway with a 2-0-1 record.

The USA also defeated Sweden 2-1 and tied host Norway 2-2. Sweden finished second, Norway was third and England was fourth.

Midfielder Rose Lavelle had a goal and an assist in the match while forward Taylor Smith scored the game-winner in the 73rd minute.

The USA opened the scoring just seven minutes into the match as Daphne Corboz found Lavelle with a pass near the top of the penalty box. Lavelle quickly turned and fired a shot that gave the Americans an early lead.

England equalized in the 60th minute off a corner kick that was deflected to Jess Sigsworth inside the six-yard box for a finish from close range.

The young Americans scored 13 minutes later as Lavelle chipped as pass over the defensive line to the speedy Smith on the right side. She took a few touches centrally and finished well into the far side netting. Lavelle, one of five players on the U.S. roster who participated in the 2014 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup, picked up an assist in each of the three games to go with her goal in the match today.

Abby Smith started the first match in goal for the U.S., while Jane Campbell went the distance in the final two.

U-23 WNT Draws Norway 2-2 at Four Nations Tournament in Norway

CHICAGO (May 29, 2015) – The U.S. Under-23 Women’s National Team tied host Norway 2-2 in its second match of a three-game tournament being held in Fredrikstad and Sarpsborg, Norway in the southeast region of the country, about 60 miles south of Oslo.

The USA was coming off a 2-1 victory against Sweden in its first match, but fell behind 1-0 in the 11th minute as Andrine Hegerberg converted a penalty kick.

The USA roared back to take the lead on two second half goals from forward Chioma Ubogagu, who is currently playing her club soccer in England with the Arsenal Ladies.

The USA equalized in the 51st minute after a Norway clearance was won by Daphne Corboz, who fed the ball to Katie Stengel near the top of the penalty area. Stengel in turn found Ubogagu, who took a few touches and put a shot that deflected off the goalkeeper’s arm into the net.

The USA took the lead in the 75th minute, once again after winning possession of a clearance. Ashley Meier touched it to Rose Lavelle, who turned and fed the ball past a defender to Ubogagu on the left side. Ubogagu took a few touches and tucked it past the goalkeeper.

Norway only took three minute to equalize as Cathrine Dekkerhus gained possession of the ball and fed it through the U.S. back line to Synne Hansen. She received the ball about 30 yards out, fought off two defenders, and slipped the ball past U.S. goalkeeper Jane Campbell near the penalty spot.

The USA still has a chance to win the tournament as it finishes up its three-games-in-five-days set on May 31 against England at Fredrikstad Stadium.

U-23 WNT Defeats Sweden 2-1 to Open Four Nations Tournament in Norway

CHICAGO (May 27, 2015) – The U.S. Under-23 Women’s National Team defeated Sweden 2-1 on goals from Kayla Mills and Cari Roccaro to win its first of three matches at the Four Nations Tournament in Norway.

The tournament, that also includes the U-23 sides from Norway and England, is being held Fredrikstad and Sarpsborg in the southeast region of the country, about 60 miles south of Oslo and close to the border with Sweden.

The USA opened the scoring in just the fifth minute after a Sweden defender tried to clear the ball from near the end line, but failed to put it out of danger. Mills collected the ball and dribbled to the top of the penalty box before playing a wall pass with Rose Lavelle. Mills dribbled past a defender and finished from about eight yards out.

The USA’s second goal came in the 29th minute off a corner kick that Sweden failed to clear. Claire Falknor fired a shot, but the ball was deflected, and Sweden tried to clear again. Mills collected the ball around the midfield and passed to Roccaro, who turned and hit a spectacular strike from about 35 yards out and over the goalkeeper.

Sweden pulled a goal back in the 53rd minute off a corner kick. U.S. goalkeeper Abby Smith came out to clear the cross, but it deflected off her gloves and the goal was credited to Elin Landstrom who had taken the corner.

The USA continues the competition against England on May 29 at Sarpsborg Stadium and finishes up the three-games-in-five-days set on May 31 against England at Fredrikstad Stadium.
