US Women defeat Mexico

US 3 - 0 Mexico

The US Women managed to go the whole year without allowing a goal. That is something they have not done since 1989. However, they only played one game that year, so not as impressive.

As far as the team on the field, they had it all together. They were spreading the field wide and keeping Mexico from making anything of their few chances. Abby Wambach played smart and got two goals. Kristine Lilly got the goal that brings her into a tie for second on the all time US goal scorer list.

For Mexico, you could tell they had improved. This is a team that averages 20-years of age. The fact that they got on that field and gave the US a run for their money speaks volumes to their future.
