[UNDER-20 WOMEN'S WORLD CUP] The USA moved into the quarterfinals of the Under-20 Women's World Cup in Chile with a 3-0 win over Argentina in Saturday.

Florida State's Becky Edwards opened the scoring in the 11th minute and California's Alex Morgan added a pair of second-half goals for the Americans, whose six points in two games assure them a place in the quarterfinal round.

The shutout was the second in a row for the Americans.

"I was very pleased with my defense today," said Coach Tony DiCicco, "and I had a feeling that if our defense was good then we would get a goal eventually."
