[USA-SOUTH KOREA]The USA defeated South Korea, 4-1, in a women's friendly Saturday at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro, Mass. The USA led 2-0 after seven minutes as it extended its unbeaten streak to 33 games. Abby Wambach scored from the penalty spot in stoppage time for her 156th career goal, putting her only two behind Mia Hamm's record.
