U.S. girls team sweep Canada in Boulder
July 21st, 2009 8AM



The USA went 3-0 in games against Canada during the recent under-20 and under-18 camps for girls national teams in Boulder, Colo.

The U-20s routed Canada's U-20s, 8-0, scoring six goals in the first half -- three in the first 10 minutes. Forwards Sydney Leroux and Toni Pressley each scored twice while Zakiya Bywaters, Charney Burke, Maya Hayes and Samantha Mewis added single scores.

The second meeting two days later was a different story as the Americans edged Canada, 2-1, on goals from Elizabeth Eddy and Leroux, the Golden Ball and Golden Shoe winner at the 2008 Under-20 Women's World Cup in Chile.

The U.S. U-18s also beat up on Canada's U-20s, winning, 5-1. They raced out to a 3-0 lead on goals by Chioma Ubogagu, Sam Johnson and Mandy Laddish (free kick from 25 yards out). In the second half, Kaelia Ohai made it 4-0, Canada international Jonelle Filigno scored seconds later, but Ahsha Smith later added a fifth goal for the Americans.

In other results, the U-20s lost to a Colorado select team, 3-0, while the U-18s beat the Real Colorado Cougars, 2-1.
