U.S. Under-17 WNT Defeats Denmark 3-0 at U-16 Nordic Cup


HILLEROD, Denmark (July 6, 2010) – The U.S. Under-17 Women’s National Team, consisting of players born in 1994 and 1995, registered its second-straight shutout victory at the U-16 Nordic Cup, downing host Denmark by a 3-0 score.

The USA got an opening goal from forward Lindsey Horan, her second of the tournament, after she latched onto a ball in the penalty box that was headed in Danielle Weatherholt and then finished into the right side of the net. Two minutes later Kodi Lavrusky doubled the lead. Speedy striker Amber Munerlyn finished the scoring six minutes from the end of the match.

The victory gives the USA the full six points from two matches (after defeating Holland 6-0 on July 5) and puts it atop Group B with one first-round match against Norway remaining. The USA needs a win or a tie in that game on Thursday, July 8, to take first place in the group and earn a berth in the championship game. A win by Norway will relegate the USA to the third-place match.
