U-18 WNT Falls to Mexico U-20s 2-1 to Complete Two-Game Set

MEXICO CITY (Aug. 15, 2015) – The U.S. Under-18 Women’s National Team fell to Mexico’s U-20s by a 2-1 score in the second of two matches in Mexico City. The teams previously tied 1-1 on Aug. 13.

Mexico took the lead in just the fourth minute as a ball was clipped over the top of the U.S. back line. Belen Cruz ran onto the ball as U.S. goalkeeper Gabrielle Kouzelos came charging off her line, but Cruz dribbled around her and scored into the empty net.

The U.S. tied the game just three minutes later as Emily Fox scored her second goal in as many games on this trip. The goal came after Savannah DeMelo dribbled around two defenders and squared a ball across the face of goal for Fox to finish first time into the lower corner of the goal.

With the team seemingly headed for another draw, Mexico bagged a crushing game-winner in the final minute of regulation and they did it in style. Nancy Antonio struck a tremendous blast from about 30 yards into the top corner on a shot that ended up being the last kick of the game.

U.S. U-18 WNT Earns 1-1 Draw with Mexico’s U-20s

MEXICO CITY (Aug. 13, 2015) – The U.S. U-18 Women’s National Team earned a 1-1 draw with Mexico’s U-20 team on the road in Mexico City.

After falling behind due to a 34th minute penalty kick from Rebeca Bernal, the USA fought back and leveled the score early in the second half. Marisa Bosco lofted in a dangerous ball to the far post where Emily Fox coolly brought the ball down and smashed home the equalizer.

The match is part of a two-game set for the U-18s against the Mexico U-20s in Mexico City. The camp is an excellent opportunity for this age group, which has an eye on the 2018 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup, to get experience in a difficult away setting.
