[USA UNDER-20 WOMEN] Hours before being drawn together in the same group at this summer's Under-20 Women's World Cup, the USA pounded China, 5-1, to sweep their two games series in Lakewood Ranch, Fla. Paris St. Germain forward Lindsey Horan scored twice to give her 20 goals in 21 U-20 national team games, and 15-year-old Mallory Pugh added her first two goals at the U-20 level.

The Chinese took the lead in the seventh minute, but Horan equalized eight minutes later. The Americans went ahead of Horan's second goal of the game and fourth in the two-game series. Pugh added to the lead with a pair of goals before an own goal completed the scoring.

The USA and China meet Aug. 8 in Montreal at the Under-20 Women's World Cup. The USA opens against Germany and Brazil in Edmonton.

March 1 in Lakewood Ranch, Fla.
USA 5 China 1. U.S. Goals: Horan 15, 51, Pugh 56, 71, own goal 77.
