U.S. U-17 WNT Rolls Past Netherlands 6-0 at U-16 Nordic Cup

HILLEROD, Denmark (July 5, 2010) – The U.S. Under-17 Women’s National Team, consisting of players born in 1994 and 1995, rolled past the Netherlands U-16 WNT by a 6-0 score during the eight-team U-16 Nordic Cup.

The USA’s Reilly Parker opened the scoring in the 35th minute, first-timing a cross from Kori Lavrusky from about five yards out. That started a flow of goals that saw three scores in each half, including a Dutch own goal in the 41st minute.

The win puts the USA atop its group that also includes Norway and Denmark. The USA will face Denmark on July 6 with a win giving the young Americans a great chance to make the championship game.
