US Women beat Aussies at DSGP

Alex Morgan scored 2 goals

09-21-2012 -  

Abby Wambach broke a tie early in the second half and Alex Morgan added two goals and two assists, helping the U.S. women's national soccer team beat Australia 6-2 on Wednesday night in an international friendly that was coach Pia Sundhage's farewell game.
 
   Sundhage announced earlier this month she was stepping away after leading the squad to back-to-back Olympic gold medals. She will return home to coach the Swedish national team.
 
   Heather O'Reilly, Shannon Boxx and Sydney Leroux also scored for the Americans, who move to 21-0-2 against Australia.
 
   The Australians went ahead 2-1 late in the first half on Sarah Walsh's low shot past Hope Solo. A few minutes later, Morgan tied up the game.
 
   Wambach deflected in the decisive goal in the 53rd minute when she simply stuck her foot out after Morgan unleashed a shot.
