U.S. WOMEN: Kai hits fifth goal in eight games
July 31st, 2006 2:15PM

MOST READ


Natasha Kai, 23, scored her fifth goal for the USA since debuting for the national team earlier this year to help the USA down Canada, 2-0, in a friendly on Sunday.

Kai, a Hawaii product, now has five goals in eight games. She finished a rebound off her own shot for her strike late in the second half. Abby Wambach's penalty kick had given the USA a halftime lead. The U.S. women improved their overall 2006 record to 9-0-3.

''Nobody could say that this was an artistic game today,'' said U.S. coach Greg Ryan. ''It was just a scrap and a battle. Credit Canada, they fought very, very hard, and I feel like our players matched their intensity and fortunately we were able to put a couple away.''
