U.S. U-23 WNT Ties Germany 2-2 in Marburg, Germany
MARBURG, Germany (May 26, 2010) – The U.S. Under-23 Women’s National Team drew 2-2 with the Germany U-23 WNT during an exhibition that at times featured pouring rain.
The match featured a wild last five minutes of the first half as Germany scored twice in a four-minute span, before Notre Dame forward Melissa Henderson pulled one back at the stroke of halftime.
The USA out-shot Germany 12-6, but could not manufacture an equalizer until the 82nd minute when UCLA’s Lauren Barnes took a free kick from about 25 yards out near the left sideline. She swung the ball into Notre Dame’s Lauren Fowlkes who won a header, sending her shot into the upper corner.
