Kelley O'Hara's Story - One Nation. One Team. 23 Stories.

Georgia native Kelley O’Hara is a southern girl at heart, and as she grew up playing all sorts of sports in Peachtree City, she never thought she would want to leave home. But her soccer travels for the USA’s youth and senior national teams, as well as a brilliant collegiate career at Stanford, have led her to live on both coasts and have taken her around the globe, opening up her eyes to a world she embraces while living life to the fullest.

WNT Downs World No. 1 Germany 2-0 to Advance to 2015 World Cup Final

MONTREAL, Canada (June 30, 2015) – The U.S. Women’s National Team downed FIFA No.1-ranked Germany 2-0 at Olympic Stadium to advance to the Final of the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup. It will be the fourth World Cup final appearance for the USA.

The first half was a balanced affair with both teams pressing and having opportunities to get on the board yet neither was able to capitalize. In the second half, things got going when U.S. defender Julie Johnston was called for a foul inside the penalty box in the 59th minute for pulling down Alexandra Popp. Celia Sasic stepped up to take the penalty kick but missed wide left to keep the game scoreless.

Almost ten minutes later, Alex Morgan got fouled in the box and it was the USA’s turn to attempt a PK. Carli Lloyd confidently netted the shot to give the USA the lead before assisting on Kelley O’Hara’s 84th-minute strike – the first of her international career – to secure the U.S. win.  

Hope Solo and the USA back line continued to shut down opponents and has now kept a scoreless streak for 513 straight minutes (a span of more than five-and-a-half matches)  in this year’s World Cup, the longest clean sheet streak in U.S. World Cup history.

It was Solo’s 10th clean sheet in World Cup play, tying Brianna Scurry’s record for shutouts in World Cup competition. The 10 clean sheets in a World Cup are not only a U.S. record, but also a FIFA Women’s World Cup record.

The WNT will vie for its third Women’s World Cup title on Sunday, July 5 at 4 p.m. PT, when it takes on the winner of the other Semifinal between England and Japan, which will be determined tomorrow, at BC Place in Vancouver, Canada. The tournament Final will be broadcast live on FOX and Telemundo. Fans can also follow in-game updates on Twitter (@ussoccer_wnt and  @ussoccer_esp).

THE BEGINNING

Kelley O’Hara was the kid who was afraid of sleepovers. “At my first one, I was at a friend’s house in the neighborhood and I felt cool, I was having a good time. But when we started to get ready for bed, I was like, ‘Uh, I don’t like the idea of this!’ I called my parents and they drove the one minute to come pick me up. I was much happier.”

Her dad says, “She would never make it the whole night. Eventually she’d just say, ‘Why don’t you plan on showing up around 9?’”

The self-described “home body” saw her world open up when she began playing with the U.S. Youth National Teams and began traveling the world. While she’d once thought of college – where you sleep in a room with a stranger – as the “worst idea in the whole world,” now she was going on recruiting trips to colleges across the country. Yet, she was still attached to home. When she boarded the plane to California for a trip to Stanford, she turned to her father with dread, “What if I like it?”

The kid who did not like sleeping even one mile from home ended up signing with a college on the other side of the country. At Stanford, she scored 57 goals, tallied 23 assists, and won the 2009 Hermann Trophy as the top collegiate soccer player in the country.

THE CONVERSION

O’Hara was a lifelong forward, a leading scorer at nearly every level of the game, from club to college. But when Ali Krieger tore her ACL in 2012, the National Team was short on outside backs, and head coach Pia Sundhage wondered what O’Hara thought about playing the position. Having learned how to step out of her comfort zone when she chose to attend Stanford, O’Hara stepped up to the challenge.

On January 22, 2012, in Olympic Qualifying against Guatemala, she started her first game at left back, registering three assists. She went on to play every minute at outside back for the USA at the 2012 Olympic Games in London.

SURFING

In California, O’Hara got hooked on surfing the first time she tried it. “It didn’t matter if I was good or not – I like learning things.” Surfing was also what steadied her. “With surfing, I don’t have to perform. I’m not competing with anyone, even with myself. I can just enjoy being in the water. And I also like that I can enjoy it if someone else gets a sick wave. In soccer, if the other team scores a sick goal, you can’t be excited about that. You can in surfing.”
