U.S. U-20 WNT Falls 3-1 in PKs to Korea DPR at 2014 FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup

TORONTO, Canada (Aug. 16, 2014) – The U.S. Under-20 Women’s National Team saw its 2014 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup come to a close this evening at the National Soccer Stadium after falling in penalty kicks to Korea DPR. The USA and Korea DPR were tied 1-1 through regulation and overtime, but North Korea ultimately prevailed with a 3-1 shootout victory to advance to the semifinals.

Korea DPR goalkeeper Kim Chol Ok saved three of the USA’s four penalty kicks, and Rim Se Ok’s penalty served as the winner to push North Korea into the semifinals against either Nigeria or New Zealand on Wednesday.

Makenzy Doniak scored the USA’s goal in regulation for her first goal in the tournament and second international tally at the U-20 level.

The USA had its chances to find a game-winning goal in regulation and overtime. Some of the better opportunities included a Mallory Pugh volley over the crossbar in the 69th minute, and two Lindsey Horan free kicks that hit the North Korea wall in the 83rd and 105th minutes.

“I’m just proud of the way that they fought and battled and played with an American spirit,” U.S. U-20 WNT head coach Michelle French said. “Hats off to a very skilled North Korea team, who were exceptional in the things they wanted to do to be successful.”

The U.S. and Korea DPR also needed overtime to decide the quarterfinal winner of the 2012 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup. The USA’s Chioma Ubogagu scored a 98th-minute winner to lift the USA to a 2-1 victory against North Korea to advance to that tournament’s semifinal stage and eventually the title.

Goal Scoring Rundown:
USA – Makenzy Doniak (unassisted), 6th minute: The U.S. had a vigorous opening 15 minutes against Korea DPR and started off on the right foot with Doniak’s first goal of the tournament. Mallory Pugh built up the attack down the right side and crossed into the box to Doniak. Her initial shot was blocked by Korea DPR defender Choe Yun Gyong, but Doniak got her own rebound and tucked it underneath Korea DPR goalkeeper Kim Chol Ok for the lead. USA 1, PRK 0

PRK – Jon So Yon (penalty), 54th minute: The USA had an unfortunate giveaway from midfield and Korea DPR took advantage. Ri Hyang Sim and Jon Ryon Hwa quickly pushed into the attack, and Kim Mi Gyong played a dangerous cross that was out of the reach of U.S. goalkeeper Katelyn Rowland for an interception. North Korea’s Ri Un Sim collected and shot, and the ball deflected off of the left arm of Stephanie Amack. Amack was issued a yellow card and defender Jon So Yon took the subsequent penalty kick. Her left-footed attempt was read well by Rowland, who anticipated correctly to her left, but the shot tipped her glove and went into the right side of the frame. USA 1, PRK 1

Penalty Kick Summary:
USA: The U.S. started first, and Savannah Jordan, Lindsey Horan and Rose Lavelle, the team’s first three shooters, each saw their attempts saved by Korea DPR goalkeeper Kim Chol Ok. She anticipated correctly on all three attempts. Amack kept her team alive with a confident shot to the lower left to cut it to 2-1, but North Korea would win on its next attempt.
PRK: After Jon So Yon gave North Korea the 1-0 lead, Rowland stopped Choe Yun Gyong’s attempt, guessing correctly to her right for the save. However, North Korea converted its next two attempts from Ri Kyong Hyang and then Rim Se Ok for the winner.

Key Saves and Defensive Stops:
USA – Katelyn Rowland, 76th through 79th minutes: Neither goalkeeper made a highlight reel-type save, but in terms of coming up in a big spot, Katelyn Rowland had to make three straight saves against Ri Un Sim in a short time frame. The first North Korea attack came from the left side at the edge of the six-yard box and Rowland made the stop in the 76th minute. Then in the 78th minute, Ri Un Sim was back at it with a header that went straight to Rowland. The Korea DPR forward had one more crack with a left-footed shot from outside the box, but again Rowland was positioned correctly and made the stop.

PRK – Kim Chol Ok, 102nd minute: U.S. second-half sub Summer Green generated the USA’s best attempt in the first 15-minute overtime with a 28-yard strike. The well-struck shot, however, went to North Korea goalkeeper Kim Chol Ok for her first save of the match.

USA – Katelyn Rowland, 110th minute: Most of North Korea’s crosses had some lift to them, but this time around Korea DPR’s Ri Kyong Hyang dished a low ball from the left, trying to find her teammate Kim So Hyang at the edge of the six-yard box. It was a dangerous moment for the U.S. defense, but USA goalkeeper Katelyn Rowland quickly left her line and broke up the play.

Additional Notes:

  • The USA is now 11-1-1 in international competition this year, with Saturday’s game recorded as a draw because the two sides were even through regulation and overtime.
  • The U.S. U-20s have allowed only five goals in international play this year, outscoring their opponents 45-5.
  • U.S. U-20 WNT head coach Michelle French made only one starting lineup change following the team’s group finale against China PR.
  • Goalkeeper Katelyn Rowland made her fourth straight start in goal. The defense featured right back Stephanie Amack, left back Christina Gibbons and center backs Katie Naughton and Cari Roccaro. Roccaro wore the captain’s armband.
  • The midfield of the 4-3-3 also remained unchanged with Rose Lavelle, Andi Sullivan and Lindsey Horan.
  • The USA’s front line included Makenzy Doniak, Mallory Pugh and the return of Margaret “Midge” Purce to the starting lineup. Against China PR, Savannah Jordan had earned the start.
  • Summer Green came off the bench for a fourth straight U-20 World Cup match, replacing Purce in the 75th minute.
  • In the 83rd minute, Taylor Racioppi entered the match for Pugh.
  • The USA’s third and final substitution came in the first 15-minute overtime session. Savannah Jordan replaced Doniak in the 105th minute.
