5 Goals to Gold
You might be interested to know, the USA women's soccer team brought home the World Cup in Sunday's match against Japan, yes, the WORLD Cup. This is the USA women's first World Cup victory since 1999. The team won with a 5-2 lead against Japan. A stark difference from the 2011 match when Japan took the win after a high pressure shootout.
This year however, the girls took to the field with intent and drive scoring their first goal only 3 minutes into the first half. They made headlines when Carli Lloyd delivered her third goal of the game from midfield in the 14th minute, making her the first player to complete a hat trick (when a player makes three goals in one game) in the shortest amount of time. The rest my friends, is history. Way to go, girls!
