Ohai gets goal, Taylor shutout in U-23s' win over Japan
[SIX NATIONS TOURNAMENT] The U.S. under-23 women’s national team opened play at the Six Nations Tournament in La Manga, Spain, with a 1-0 win over Japan on a
56th-minute goal from Kealia Ohai, the No. 2 overall pick in the NWSL College Draft by the Houston Dash out of North Carolina. Texas goalkeeper Abby Smith
earned the shutout.
The U.S. roster featured six players from the U.S. team that won the 2012 U-20 Women’s World Cup in Japan, which was coached by current U-23 WNT head coach Steve
Swanson. Three more 2012 world champions – midfielders Samantha Mewis and Sarah Killion of UCLA and Morgan Brian of Virginia – are with the full U.S. national team at the Algarve Cup in Portugal.
