U-17 WNT Sweeps Two-Game Set vs. Korea Republic with 7-0 Win

MOKPO, Korea Republic (Sept. 3, 2014) – The U.S. Under-17 Women’s National Team trounced their counterparts from the Korea Republic by a 7-0 score to sweep a two-game set that also included a 4-1 victory on Aug. 31. For the second match in a row, midfielder Ashley Sanchez notched a first-half hat trick while the USA also got goals from Taryn Torres, Alexa Spannstra, Kali Trevithick and Frankie Tagliaferri, all before 55 minutes had elapsed.

The USA got things going directly from the kickoff, winning a tackle in midfield to start an attack. The USA forced a few more turnovers before Torres latched on to a free ball in the left side of the box, powered toward goal and slammed a shot off the goalkeeper’s hand and inside the near post for a 1-0 lead with less than a minute gone.

One minute later the USA made it 2-0 when Sanchez eluded a defender on the top of the penalty area and shot across the ‘keeper into the lower left corner.

It was 3-0 after 10 minutes when Rachel Jones played Spaanstra behind the defense. Spaanstra easily rounded the goalkeeper to the left and slotted into the open net.

In the 14th minute, Civana Kuhlmann send a hard cross on the ground from the left side through the goal mouth to Sanchez, who slide to shoot at the far post off the hands of the ‘keeper and into the net. Sanchez made it 5-0 in the 25th minute, finishing a rebound of her own right-footed shot with a left-footed blast into the upper right corner from 19 yards out.

The first of two second half goals came in the 48th minute when Frankie Tagliaferri played a short pass to Trevithick deep inside the penalty box. Trevithick pulled off a nifty move, cutting the ball behind her own leg before finishing from six yards out.

Tagliaferri added the final goal on a long dribble that ended with a right-footed shot that snuck into the lower left corner from 18 yards out.

These were the first international matches for many players at the U-17 level and the squad will come together again in November for a training camp at the U.S. Soccer National Training Center in Carson, Calif. The age cut-off for the next U-17 Women’s World Cup in 2016, which is currently scheduled to be played in Jordan, is players born on or after Jan. 1, 1999. Seventeen players on the roster are 1999s with three born in 2000.
