USA wins under-23 women's tournament
[SIX NATIONS TOURNAMENT] The USA won the the Six Nations Tournament for under-23 women's teams in La Manga, Spain, with a 2-1 win over Norway on goals -- the first
for each player at the under-23 level -- from Portland Thorns FC midfielder Meleana Shim and former Wake Forest star Katie
Stengel, who will play for the Pali Blues in the W-League this summer.
Shim’s goal, her first at the U-23 level, came just before halftime on a pass from
Stengel after a cross from midfielder Danielle Colaprico to the top of the penalty area.
Stengel’s goal on a pass from Carpice Dydasco came in the 75th minute and would prove to be the gamewinner as Norway pulled a goal back three minutes later, taking advantage of a poor clearance by
U.S. goalkeeper Abby Smith.
The USA defeated Japan 1-0 and Sweden 2-1 earlier in the competition.
